Lisbon Credit Union Moxie Float Wins BEST OVERALL!

The Lisbon Credit Union was very pleased to receive the “BEST OVERALL” trophy at this year’s Moxie Festival. On July 13, 2013, staff members from the Credit Union walked down the Moxie parade route in Lisbon Falls as part of the annual Moxie Festival. Despite the hot weather, staff members were excited to participate by tossing candy to the crowds, waving from the float, driving the parade vehicle and helping prepare the float! As always, Monty Moose was in full uniform walking beside the float.

The Credit Union float resembled a campground to satisfy the “Moxie, A Maine Tradition” theme. Various camping elements were put together to create this “one of a kind” float. The float included a standing tent, fake pine trees, a fake fire surrounded by camping chairs, a hand-made trail sign displaying several Moxie themed areas, a large stuffed teddy bear in a Moxie shirt, and our very own camping crew!

In the past, the Lisbon Credit Union has won another “Best Overall” Trophy, as well as two “Most Appealing” Trophies. This is one Credit Union that takes Moxie very seriously!

The Moxie Festival has been held on the second weekend in July since 1983. The festival now includes a Pow Wow, Friday night fireworks, parade, festival, 5K road race, and canoe race on the Androscoggin River. Town Officials estimate that the event brings over 40,000 to the area during the three day period.
