This special occasion gives credit unions an opportunity to remember their proud history, while promoting understanding and support for the credit union difference.

Looking at all the choices available in the financial services industry, the credit union difference is clear: no matter where you are, credit unions are 100% focused on meeting and exceeding members’ financial services needs. At Sebasticook Valley FCU and all credit unions, every member is an owner with an equal vote in the election of the credit union’s volunteer board of directors. There are no stockholders at credit unions, and earnings are returned to members in the form of lower rates on loans and higher rates on savings or invested back into the credit union to provide more of the services that members need and want.

Whether a credit union is providing a loan to help a member make their home more energy efficient, giving financial counseling to a member whose company closed its doors, or simply offering a better deal on a used car loan, credit unions are supporting and serving their members and the community. Every day is about making a difference for credit union members. Locally or internationally, during International Credit Union Week or at any time of the year – Sebasticook Valley FCU is where you know your money will be local, safe, and great service is guaranteed.

Join Sebasticook Valley FCU at our Pittsfield and Newport branches on Thursday October 20th to help us celebrate International Credit Union Day! We will have special drawings, free give aways, and refreshments for our members!
