CHESTER, Vt. – One Credit Union brushed off the last of the construction dust with a two-day celebration at its newly renovated Chester, Vt. branch. “While big banks are closing branches in many areas we serve, One Credit Union is here to stay. Moreover, I’m happy to say, we are investing in the Chester community,” Brett Smith, president and CEO of One CU, stated proudly. The new branch brings the latest technology to the branch, and allows for a more efficient, collaborative and consultative approach with members.
“Our goal is to help our members achieve their financial goals. We need to work side by side with our clients to find the best solutions to meet the needs of consumers and businesses in Chester,” explained Kevin DeRosa, retail manager.
To celebrate, the Credit Union hosted new friends, neighbors, and current members with food, games, and prizes. Two electric scooters were raffled off to Ryan Spittle and Brenda Martin. To further demonstrate its commitment to the communities it serves, One Credit Union made a $5 donation on behalf of each visitor over the two-day event. At the concluding ribbon cutting ceremony, Brett Smith presented a $500 gift to Meals on Wheels, as well as a $500 check to Make-A-Wish Vermont. “One Credit Union shares more than a suite of financial products. Together, we all share this special place we call home. We share a way of life. One Credit Union is proud to support these two organizations and the work they perform here in town,” added Smith.
