What’s in a name? It was Shakespeare that wrote that a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet. I am certainly no expert on Shakespeare (his writings are too hard to read for my taste) but I don’t think that is the case with the name First Federal Credit Union. The credit in credit union represents the most important thing we do: provide credit, or loans, to our members. Way back in 1926 a group of postal employees recognized the need to make credit available to all postal employees. Since that time, through economic cycles, wars, pandemics, floods – you name it, this Credit Union has provided credit to members. As those loans are repaid, it makes even more loans available for more members. Through the years, both the type of credit we make available and the group of members we serve has changed and we can now offer credit for almost any type of personal or household need. This is supported by our success: over the past 24 months, we have provided over $130 million dollars in loans to our members. If Mr. Shakespeare was a member, he would know the importance of Credit in First Federal Credit Union. We will continue to work hard every day to meet the credit needs of our members – after all, Credit is our middle name.
          As always, stop in and say hi, introduce yourself or even comment on what you want First Federal to do for you!
