[May 31, 2018]  To be postedOn Friday, May 25th the CEFCU Member Center held a day-long open house in celebration of 30 years of service to the Lincoln and Logan County Community. The Citizens Equity First Credit Union came to Lincoln in 1988 taking over the former Logan County Credit Union and moving into a facility of Fifth Street.

After they were established in the community, at the six year anniversary, the building underwent a facelift, bringing the facility into modern day time. Now 30 years after coming to town, the Center has once again undergone a new facelift, bringing the banking and membership services into the current times with improvements inside the building that include easier access to online membership services inside the building, and changes to teller stations that assure greater privacy for members as they conduct business inside the bank.

On Friday the day began at 8:30 a.m. with members and the community invited to come inside the center for a look at all the upgrades. They were also treated to breakfast style snacks such as sweet rolls and Danish, fresh fruit, and coffee, juice, and bottled water.

At 9 a.m. a group consisting of CEFCU staff, the Chief Operating Officer Matt Mamer and CEFCU Chairman of the Board Todd Gwillim, and members of the Lincoln Community including Mayor Seth Goodman, Ward 4 Alderman Rick Hoefle, City Clerk Peggy Bateman, Morgan Gleason of the Logan County Tourism Bureau, Marcia Cook, Jennifer Kirby, Karen Hargis, and Roy Logan assembled outside for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

During the opening comments it was noted that CEFCU has made a significant investment in the community and its members, but that it is a circular motion because as they invest in the community, the community is investing in CEFCU and in friends, family and neighbors via the dollars passing through the credit union. It was also noted that CEFCU is a major supporter and sponsor of many local events.

Chief Operating Officer Matt Mamer began with thanking the members of the local government and members of the community on hand. He acknowledged staff members present and introduced each one.

He said CEFCU is proud to offer an updated member center, and the company is always looking for ways to improve the membership experience with CEFCU.

He concluded saying that CEFCU is very pleased to have been so well supported by members of the community, and they look forward to a continued good relationship with the citizens of Lincoln and Lincoln County.

Mamer then turned the program over to the Chairman of the CEFCU Board of Directors Todd Gwillim who echoed what Mamer's appreciation to the community and he named many of the local events and organizations that CEFCU does support through sponsorship.

Mayor Seth Goodman was the closer for the event, offering up congratulations to the CEFCU team for their new and improved facility and also expressing appreciation to CEFCU and its membership for the continued community involvement and support.
