Del Norte Credit Union, Northern New Mexico’s hometown financial co-op, invites the Los Alamos County community to help break a world record.
At noon June 9, join DNCU during Los Alamos Chamber Fest at the corner of 15th and Central Avenue, as they attempt to break the world record for the most people to yell at once “Where Discoveries are Made”. Each community member who joins them will receive a complimentary megaphone for the attempt. This is the first year DNCU attempts to break a world record. This event also is kicking off a yearly attempt to ultimately register for official documentation of a world record. Make sure to arrive early, as more than 1,000 people are needed to break the world record. A recognition plaque will be presented to Los Alamos County officials following the event.
“We decided to make this world record attempt as accessible as possible. We want to get the community of Los Alamos together in one place, at one time, and work together to achieve recognition across the region and state,” DNCU CEO and President Chuck Valenti said. “It is very exciting to work together with the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce and Los Alamos County to achieve something that has never been done before.”
The “Discoveries” brand, launched by the county and community partners, is designed to strengthen the community experience and attract more businesses, talent and visitors to Los Alamos. Consultants HK Advertising and The Idea Group of Santa Fe are sharing how local residents, businesses, and organizations can participate with “Discoveries” via the newly formed Discoveries Action Team. The tagline, Where Discoveries are Made, truly captures the essence that Los Alamos cultivates curiosity and creates aha moments. Discoveries are made daily, today, and historically in their past.
“It’s exciting to see community members embracing the “Discoveries” mindset and working together to make Los Alamos a better place to live, work, place and stay. The world-record attempt by Del Norte Credit Union is a great way to show that Los Alamos is truly united behind “where discoveries are made,” James Glover of The Idea Group said.
“The Chamber of Commerce is delighted to have DNCU join us at ChamberFest for their First Annual Community World Record attempt,” Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce Director Ryn Herrmann said. “Come be a part of this world record attempt and enjoy all that the Los Alamos Chamber members have to offer at ChamberFest!”
Los Alamos ChamberFest is a community event that gives local chamber businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services with great entertainment and fun for the entire family. For more information on Los Alamos Chamber Fest, visit their website at LosAlamosChamber.com
