The Luseland Credit Union has moved into its new building. The credit union’s board and staff showed off the new office at a public event last week.

A grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Jan. 10 at the Luseland Credit Union. The brief program included a lunch and guided tours of the new building. The credit union is located on Grand Avenue, the community’s main street.

Adam Franko, the credit union’s general manager, said the temperature was frigid on the day of the grand opening, but the feelings were warm inside the building and it was a fantastic day for the credit union, its staff and members. According to Franko, approximately 250 people visited the building on that day.

He said that there was a nice crowd on hand for the ribbon cutting, and the tours began after the ceremony. In addition to members, he said colleagues from neighbouring credit unions also travelled to Luseland for the celebration.
