CREDIT UNION NEWS:
Have you checked your January 2017 statement (paper or online version)? We've now paid out the Member Rewards for 2016. We returned to our members: 8 percent bonus on deposit interest earned; 8 percent rebate on service charges; and 4 percent rebate on loan, mortgage and line of credit interest paid. It's a nice little boost to start the new year. If you have any questions about your member rewards, please see us in branch. When we do well, we share those profits with you. Another reason to be part of our credit union community!
