On Saturday, September 7, 2013, Signal Financial FCU kicked off Back-to-School week by hosting “Dollar Dog Day”  featuring the children’s savings club mascot, Dollar Dog.  The event was held from 10 a.m. – 12 noon at Signal Financial’s Largo, Maryland branch office, and featured pictures with the big dog himself along with face painting, a prize wheel and refreshments. 

The event was co-sponsored by a local Chic-Fil-A franchise, who lent their support to financial literacy for the day, as well as handing out free samples and coupons to members.  Chic-Fil-A also brought a carnival game and prizes for the children to enjoy.
