The morning began with a little rain and a few people wondering if any work would happen at all that day, but as the sun emerged and the rainbows appeared in the morning hours to welcome in a Monday, so unfolded the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Community Choice Credit Union Member Center that will open in the spring of 2023 on the main corridor of Harvey Street.
Community Choice Credit Union merged with First General Credit Union a few years back and as they have been working to get acquainted with Muskegon in a friendly and non presumptuous way, we've been so very fortunate in the partnership we have because we got to see first hand the deeds and actions they are doing from scholarships for kids to the tune for $5000 a shot to supporting the causes and people that make the biggest differences in our community like Every Woman's Place, Child Abuse Council and more. Teacher supply boxes....community sponsorships and more....Community Choice Credit Union means it when they say they GIVE BIG.
Being invited to film a groundbreaking is an honor in and of itself, but when the "Neighbor Guy" just happens to be the Ogema of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians....the welcome is extra special. Larry Romanelli joined the CEO and staff of Community Choice Credit Union for a sacred blessing of the land which we were able to film for you too. Take a look.
It's an amazing time to be in Muskegon. To see an organization like Community Choice Credit Union look all the way across Michigan from their established markets on the east side of the state and realize that the next big wave is in Muskegon is exactly why we want to be right here on the wave with them. 2023 is right around the corner and as you heard, Community Choice Credit Union is digging in deeper. Muskegon is home to Community Choice and GIVING BIG is part of the culture!! Stay tuned! We're going to be bringing you more events...more specialists who "know how" and more ways Community Choice Credit Union is making Muskegon home!
