Oaken Update – April, 2014

Spring is here—time to get planting

Yes, winter is FINALLY over. And what better way to take revenge on one of the worst winters in memory by planting? Growing new flowers, nurturing old plants, tending to favourite shrubs and trees—they’re all great therapy for that never-ending cold we endured.

At Oaken we’re all about encouraging new growth. Celebrate the return of spring, join the conversation, and stay connected with us on Facebook and Twitter.

First, simply like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Then share your pictures that show off your green thumb: your gorgeous garden, your beautiful roses, those home-grown tomatoes that are your pride and joy. Use the hashtag #plantforyourfuture and join in the fun!

We’ll even help you kick-start the growing. We’d be delighted to provide you with an Oaken leaf made of seeded paper. Simply reply to this email and include your address and we’ll send one to you. Instructions are included, but it’s easy—just plant your Oaken leaf in soil and water it regularly. Before you know it, you’ll have beautiful wildflowers to enjoy into summer. It’s the best way to forget all that ice and snow…

We’re looking forward to growing with you!




It’s a great to get out again!

Just like you, we’re thrilled about getting out again. And in our case, that means getting out into the community.

As we mentioned in our last newsletter, we’re going to be at the Ernst & Young Centre in Ottawa for the Zoomer show this weekend—April 26 and 27. We always love to meet our customers, so don’t forget to drop by and say hello if you’re in the Ottawa region. You’ll be able to get a special 0.10% bonus on any of our posted interest rates, your very own Oaken leaf to plant, plus we’ll be giving away another $500 GIC—just one more reason to visit our booth.




Springing into marriage?

Another reason we love spring is that it’s the start of the wedding season. Helping our customers realize their dreams is what we do at Oaken, and weddings are the start of some really big ones. So we decided to put together some helpful articles about financial planning as a couple—for those who are already married, as well as those planning to get married soon. Good finances make for solid relationships, so happy reading!
