Honoring Juneteenth

Tomorrow, communities across the country will take time to commemorate Juneteenth - the 19th of June - when the final state in the country honored the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing citizens who had been enslaved.

As a credit union dedicated to putting people over profits, with a Statement of Commitment that underscores our dedication to "
Treat every member with respect and dignity regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability or military status," we believe tomorrow represents a unique opportunity to reflect and connect with our communities.

Therefore, in observance of Juneteenth, we will be closing at 2 p.m. tomorrow, giving our
employees paid time off. We encourage our employees to take this opportunity to learn, to serve, to reflect and to connect, and we hope our members will join in this effort to do their part to make lasting change across our communities, nation and world.

If members need to use our drive-thru tomorrow, we ask that they please plan to do so before 2 p.m., or plan to visit us on Saturday, June 20, during regular operating hours.  Also, our online banking, mobile banking and ATMs will be available, as always.

While Juneteenth is just one day, it represents the obligation we all have to be dedicated each and every day to ensuring that we are upholding the values of diversity and equality in our work and in our lives.
