"The Credit Union was proud to be part of the Dorchester Lower Mills Holiday Stroll on Thursday, November 18. A tent was set up at MAFCU's future new branch, 1205 Adams Street in Dorchester Lower Mills. Dozens of people stopped by for cupcakes and hot chocolate. Kids got their face painted and enjoyed balloon creations along with holiday presents, and got their pictures taken with Santa."
