Servus, Alberta’s largest credit union, has long had a history of partnering with community organizations. Now the Alberta Aviation Museum is one of them.
“We like to look for those hidden gems around the province,” says Servus Community Engagement Consultant Scott Lundell. “The aviation museum just came as one of those.”
Starting in September, Servus will sponsor a Free Access Night from 5 pm to 8 pm on the last Thursday of the month.
“We help members and the general public experience things they wouldn’t normally try out for free in the hopes they can discover something they can
enjoy a little bit more,” explains Lundell. He says the museum is also an ideal choice because it is right across the street from Servus’ Kingsway branch and will give employees at that location some ‘ownership’ of the partnership.
AAM Executive Director Jean Lauzon is delighted to have Servus come on board.
“With their strong record of helping Alberta communities and organizations, we are delighted to partner with a company that has such a strong social responsibility. We hope many people will discover our museum through these free access nights and become regular visitors and supporters of our work to preserve Edmonton’s rich aviation heritage.”
Servus and the museum will kick off the partnership on Thursday September 28 at 5 pm. There will be food trucks on site for the opening night.
