This credit union was formed in 1933 by seven individuals who decided the Municipal Employees of Beloit needed a credit union. The people placed on the Board of Directors were: William Paul Stone, John Boynton, Albert Haase, Myrtle Petitt and Ferdinand Boltz.
The treasurer was a fireman, so the credit union operated out of a cigar box kept in his locker at the fire station. When the treasurer would change, the credit union cigar box would be moved to the new treasurerís location.
In 1965 the credit union was moved out of the fire station and into an office in the Goodwin building. By 1967, with assets of $500,000.00, the credit union was ready to hire its first employee, Betty Hoadley.
While officed in the Goodwin building, the credit union experienced water damage from a fire. The money had to be hung up on clothes lines to dry. After the fire, the credit union moved to a location on Bluff Street. In 1978 the Board of Directors decided the time had come to build a permanent home for the credit union, and so 1979 was the year we moved into our current location. The planning of this building was done by: Robert Lynch, Thorald Fawcett, Virgil Waelti, Beth Bains, Wayne Showers, Robert Schendel, Bill Holmberg, David Smith and Ralph Marks.
Many years have gone by, and a lot of changes have occurred, and
the credit union has continued to grow. Today, our assets are more than $10,000,000.00, and the credit unionís first employee, Betty Hoadley, has retired.
