With the premise of delivering a more modern and comfortable place for customers to do their banking, the Community First Credit Union on Trunk Road held a grand “re-opening” Thursday.

Trish Porco, Branch Manager said the branch now reflects the new branding and colour scheme for the credit union.

Combined, the Community First Credit Union now has over 1.6 billion in assets.
