Bridgewater Credit Union (BCU), a division of Merrimack Valley Credit Union (MVCU), was honored with an Economic Impact Award from the Metro South Chamber of Commerce during the Chamber’s 110th Annual Meeting Expo on Wednesday, Nov. 15. According to the Metro South Chamber, the award honors “significant investment and contribution to the economic development of the region.”
BCU received the award in recognition of the credit union’s investment in the new branch that opened on Washington Street in Hanover this summer. The branch held a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration on Saturday, Sept. 9, featuring tours of the new 2,500 square foot branch, food trucks, live music, lawn games and camaraderie amongst community members.
“Thank you to Chris Cooney and the Metro South Chamber of Commerce for recognizing our credit union, to my team at BCU for their hard work in creating, designing and opening our newest branch in Hanover, and to our terrific Hanover staff led by Branch Manager Marcello DiVincenzo,” said MVCU CFO/COO Michael Valley. “Opening this branch was critical for us to better serve our members in Hanover and the surrounding communities, and to increase access to financial services for those who are not yet our members.”
Following a merger with RTN Federal Credit Union and the opening of the Hanover location, MVCU now operates 19 retail branches from southern New Hampshire through eastern Massachusetts. To learn more about limited time offers in celebration of the Hanover branch, visit www.mvcu.com/hanover.
