LAKE JACKSON, Texas - TDECU, formerly Texas Dow Employees CU, celebrated its 100,000th member by giving him 100,000 pennies-$1,000.

"This couldn't come at a better time-my girlfriend told me to join TDECU because of their great rates and benefits and she couldn't have been more right," said member No. 100,000 Mario Garcia, who also induced his mother and sister-in-law to join the credit union. The 51-year-old credit union also recently hit the $1 billion mark in assets.
