Ti Federal Credit Union opens new branch

The new facility, located at 43 Meacham St., features state-of-the-art technology, three inside teller stations, two drive-through teller windows, a 24-hour walk-up ATM, the TFCU marketing office and a full-time member service representative. Members can conduct any transaction from applying for a loan to setting up electronic bill pay service. The TFCU Board of Directors chose Port Henry as the location for the TFCUs first branch based on key criteria; primarily the large number of existing members in the community who will benefit from local access to the credit unions services, said Greg Johnson, Ticonderoga FCUs CEO. Were pleased and proud to join this community that has so enthusiastically welcomed us. Johnson recognized Wendy Tatro, the Port Henry branch manager. Wendy has been a valued TFCU employee for 13 years, and she personifies the credit union commitment to service. She will ensure that our first branch delivers the high level of excellence that our members have come to expect. In addition to credit union officials, a number of local dignitaries were on hand for the event, including Port Henry Mayor Ruth McDonough and Town of Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava. The timing of the opening of the new branch coincides with the launch of the credit unions TFCUniversity member seminars. The monthly seminars are held on the second Wednesday of each month, and will include overviews of the credit unions products and services, including virtual branch and electronic bill pay features, among other important topics such as identity theft. Individuals interested in the seminars should call the TFCU at 585-6725 or email krielly@ticonderogafederal.com. Both the Ticonderoga and Port Henry branches will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, until 6 p.m. on Thursday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, (drive-thru only in Port Henry). The Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union was chartered in 1954 as the International Paper Ticonderoga mills employee credit union. Since then, it has amended its charter twice, and now provides services to persons who live, work, worship or attend school in, or businesses or legal entities located in Essex County, Washington County or in the Towns of Hague, Horicon and Chester. The TFCU continues to grow and offer membership to all who will benefit.
