Transformation of local credit union completed

With the replacement of signage

Staff reporter

A plan that has been in the works for over a year came to its fruition last week with the official replacement of signage at the Rimbey branch of the Servus Credit Union.

Formerly known as Community Savings, the organization merged with two other credit unions – Commonwealth and Servus – and amalgamated into one, much larger credit union on Nov. 1, 2008.

“This milestone project signifies our coming together as one unified credit union to better serve our member-owners,” said Ralph Blyth, manager of the Rimbey branch. “We are very proud to be the first province-wide credit union in Canada. Our scope enables us to provide our signature service to members throughout Alberta – from Lethbridge to Fort McMurray and everywhere in between.”

Following the merger, Servus Credit Union grew to include more than 400,000 members through a network of more than 100 locations in 62 Alberta communities with more than $10 billion in assets.
