Credit union invites public to set shredding world record

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution with three local East County branches in El Cajon, La Mesa and Santee, is inviting the public to its SDCCU Super Shred Event featuring free document shredding services from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, July 20 in the Qualcomm Stadium northwest parking lot located at 9449 Friars Road, San Diego. SDCCU is hoping to shred the Guinness World Record for most shred paper collected in 24 hours. The current world record is 111,920 pounds of paper currently held by Comerica Bank, Iron Mountain and KDFW FOX 4 in Dallas.
The public is invited to bring their old documents containing personal and confidential information to be shred on the spot at no charge. Paper documents should be removed from binders prior to shredding; however, staples, paperclips, CDs and floppy discs are okay to be shredded. Shred-It, the world’s leading document destruction and recycling company, is providing the shredding equipment. The first 1,000 who take advantage of SDCCU’s free shredding services this Saturday will receive a free gift. Plus, there will be free food and donations will be accepted for the San Diego Humane Society.
