Presidents Note

Dear Valued Member,

    I would like to thank you for your Credit Union loyalty.  Because of you, our Credit Union is growing at a healthy rate.  Some think growth is bad, but the truth is that controlled, healthy growth is a necessity.  Remember, any business that ceases to grow and profit, ceases.  One of the ways we grow is by bringing your family members into our membership.  Your husband, wife, mother, father, brother, sister, son, daughter, grandson, and granddaughter are eligible to join and use our services.  When they join, the tree is the same for them, and we grow and serve our community.  Another way you can help your Credit Union to grow is, when possible, to patronize the businesses that belong to our employee group.  This will not only keep our Credit Union strong, but also our community.  Please click here to see a list of these businesses.

    Our Credit Union has been going through a time of change.  You will meet a few new professionals when you visit our office.  Be assured, the same friendly courtesy and personal confidentially you have been used to will still be awaiting you.  When you belong to a Credit Union, you are an owner as well as a member.  You should be and will be treated as such.

    As most of you already know, the new building on the corner of Route 36 and Spruce Street is complete.  Improved parking, drive-thru service, and a drive-thru ATM are among the conveniences the new building provides to our members.

    Our Board has developed and adopted a confidentially contract for all Board of Directors, Committee Members, and Staff Professionals to sign.  If you have a problem with personal confidentially, please contact any Director or Credit Union Manager.  The same goes for any problem or complaint you may have.

    Many of you have expressed to me your disappointment with the low interest rates on savings.  This is a very difficult market we are in right now.  Your Board of Directors and Management are working very hard to get a return on your money that will allow savings rates to improve.

    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve your financial needs and for your loyalty.
