On April 16, the Allegan Credit Union marked the completion of their recent remodeling project with an Allegan Area Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting Celebration.  With 37 years of service on the on ACU Board of Directors, ribbon cutting honors went to Helen Darby, assisted by Credit Union CEO Billie McClellan, and surrounded by board members from the Credit Union and Chamber of Commerce, Allegan City Council members, and Ralph LaMacchia from the LaMacchia Group of Milwaukee, WI, the project’s design and management contractor.

The celebration didn’t end there, as the Allegan Credit Union celebrated 70 years of service to the Allegan area with an open house on April 28.  Initially serving employees of Blood Brothers Machine Company, the credit union opened its doors on March 9, 1945 as Blood Brothers Federal Employees Credit Union.  From 1973 until 1975, the credit union served the employees of Rockwell International.  On August 1, 1975, the credit union opened its doors to the community for membership and became known as the Allegan Community Federal Credit Union, serving anyone who lives or works in Allegan County, or is a blood relative of a current member.

Congratulations to the Allegan Credit Union.  Your history of service to this community runs deep, and the spectacular renovations are an appropriate stepping stone for your next 70 years.
