Greater Utica Chamber’s Choo Choo Open Hula Hoop Contest Winner
August 29th, 2014
Thanks to all who participated in our hula hoop contest at the Greater Utica Chamber’s Choo Choo Open. You were all good sports. Our winner was Ken Williams who hula hooped for just over 5 minutes! Ken won a 40” flat screen smart TV. When asked a few questions regarding his hula hoop experience, here’s what he had to say:
First Source: Did you ever dream that you’d hold a hula hoop contest record? Ken: Yes, in fact this has been a goal of mine for some time.
First Source: How long did you practice in preparation for our hula hoop contest? Ken: I have found ancillary benefits from raising two daughters; one I can engage any teenager in a discussion on the Divergent book series and two I can win hula hoop contests.
First Source: Did your dreams come true? Do you love your new TV? Ken: The TV is great, the girls are helping me understand all the features of the “smart” TV as we speak.

Now that you’ve been accepted the fun begins…how are you going to pay for college?
Start with some local research. There are quite a few organizations right within your hometown that could be looking to give you money for school. That’s right, GIVE YOU money! Many of them have scholarship programs in place and are awaiting applicants just like you.
Check your Kiwanis, Rotary, anchor businesses and larger organizations. Also some clubs and trade organizations give scholarships to those studying in a specific field. Just ask, you’d be surprised at what you may find.
Once you’ve applied for State and Federal loans, see what you’ll need to supplement. There are always options. It may help to co-sign a loan with a parent to get a better rate and help build your credit.

Quite simply, it’s the only account you’ll ever need.
Only One Checking is the checking account offered at First Source. It is aptly titled as such, as we offer just one account and you use it however you like best. Depending on how you use it, you get rewarded as well. Other financial institutions will offer promos like getting $100 for opening an account. If you look at the fine print, you usually have to sign up for direct deposit in order to get that money. Others offer no fees, but you often have to sign up for e-statements and auto bill pay, etc. Or they offer a few different accounts but each have stipulations to qualify for and the choices can be confusing, even overwhelming depending on how many they offer.
We know that your checking account should just be there for you, ready when you need it. You shouldn’t have to think about it. That’s why we’ve stripped it down and made it simple.
Only One Checking at its basic level has no stipulations. If you’d like a plain old checking account, this is for you. However, if you’d like to get a little more out of it, you can be rewarded as you go. For example, if you have a higher monthly balance, your account can earn tiered dividends. If you are a frequent debit card user, you can access travel perks, online coupons and monthly rebates.
The account is set up to be your main hub. Money comes in (via direct payroll deposit if you choose), and then money goes out as you need and as you’d prefer. You can write paper checks, or sign up for auto bill pay. And with our One Card debt card, powered by VISA® you can swipe it like a credit card but manage the funds through your Only One account. You have access to over 28,000 nationwide surcharge-free ATMs and our mobile app.
It truly is everything you need, all in one place.
