Our Bellows Falls office is opening in its new location on Monday, July 13, 2020! It has been a long process and we are very happy to be able to welcome our members into our new office. The office comes with a River Valley Credit Union ATM located in the 1st lane of the drive-up, a night deposit, drive-up teller access via tube, and the same great service from our Bellows Falls staff! Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the branch will be fully operational with limited member occupancy, as posted on the front door. We are very excited to share this space with you and hope to see you there! Our new location is 105 Westminster Street, Bellows Falls, VT 05101.
We have some very exciting news to announce! For the past several months, we have been evaluating and discussing the possibility of strategically joining forces with another small credit union in Vermont. After careful research and consideration, your Board of Directors is in unanimous support of partnering with Members Advantage Community Credit Union, headquartered in Barre, Vermont. We believe that this merger will strengthen the financial position of the credit union and help to ensure long-term sustainability. Through this partnership, we anticipate reaching a whole new level of personal service and convenience, as well as expanding our current mix of products and services. This cooperative merger can only happen if our members vote in favor of it, so we hope that we can count on your support. We will keep you updated as we move forward with this proposal and will be available to answer any questions that might arise.
For more information about this proposed merger, please see our Membership Letter and Merger Proposal Q&A.
As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus, we are making some temporary changes to ensure the safety and health of our members and employees. We are now allowing members inside our lobbies, with the exclusion of the Bellows Falls office, which will continue to be “drive-up only” until the opening of our new Bellows Falls office location (anticipated for mid-July). Please note the following information for all other branches:
– Face masks or face coverings are required
(scarfs, bandannas, and standard masks are acceptable)
-Limited member occupancy (as posted on the lobby door)
– Public restrooms are temporarily unavailable
-Please make an appointment to see an MSR
If you are feeling ill or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, please do not come into any office location.
Congratulations to all of the 2020 graduates! Be proud, be strong, and follow your dreams. Hard work pays off and all of us here at River Valley Credit Union wish you the best on all of your future endeavors!
