AuSable River Festival (7/21 – 7/27) 
Every year, the AuSable River Festival brings together international canoe race enthusiasts and families to celebrate the second leg of the Triple Crown of Canoe Racing—the AuSable River Canoe Marathon, a race spanning 120 river miles between Grayling and Oscoda, MI. We take an active role by participating in or sponsoring several events throughout the week. As a contributing sponsor, you will see us at:  

  • Kids Day (7/23)
    Set for Tuesday, July 23rd, the day promises an array of activities tailored for our youngest community members. This year’s theme of Superheroes is near and dear to our hearts as we gear up for Superhero September! It’s a perfect opportunity for families to engage in fun activities in the City Park.  
  • Brew Ave in Grayling! (7/26) 
    The NCACU team will be working during Beer Avenue on July 26th, as part of our ongoing effort to support and promote local businesses. This event is a fantastic way to relax and visit with friends before the chaos of Marathon weekend hits high gear. Stop and see us — we might even have a can-koozie to keep your fingers warm while drinking an ice-cold beer!   
  • Duck Derby (7/27)
    NCACU has sponsored a team in the Duck Derby scheduled on Saturday, July 27th. Get your ticket in the branch and be part of the fun. All proceeds benefit the Grayling Chamber of Commerce’s River Festival. If your duck crosses the finish line first, you could win $500!   

Watch your email for updates on our initiatives and events. At NCACU, we’re proud to support our members and the communities we serve! 


MASH (Mentoring – Assisting – Supporting – Helping)

These volunteers are the caring employees of North Central Area Credit Union who mentor, assist, support, and help within our communities. Whether it’s calling out bingo numbers at a nursing home, collecting trash along our highways, volunteering to coach, mentor or lead a children’s program, or working a high school tailgate party, the MASH volunteers will be there rain or shine.

Kid’s Day AuSable River Festival, Firemen’s Memorial Festival, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Hand2Hand, American Red Cross and United Way are just a few of the local organizations that benefit from the enthusiasm and the energy of our MASH volunteers.

North Central Area Credit Union is very proud of the time and effort donated by all of our volunteers that benefit the communities in which we live, work and play.

The Mascot Project

A community investment initiative between North Central and the local public schools where our branches are located.  We have longstanding relationships with Grayling, Houghton Lake, Roscommon, and Standish.

The entire project is called the Mascot Project and in each of the branches it becomes the “school mascot” project.

  • Grayling-Viking Project
  • Houghton Lake-Bobcat Project
  • Roscommon- Buck Project
  • Standish- Panther Project

Our ATM’s are branded with the school logo and the credit union makes a donation to the schools for each swipe at the ATM.  We make donations to the schools as part of the Fangear event at the football games each year. We also collection donations via School Mascot personal checks, and most recently by selling NCACU merchandise in our lobbies.
