EAST HARTFORD, CT (April 15, 2019) — American Eagle Financial Credit Union, Connecticut’s largest community-focused credit union, today opened its first branch office in Avon, located at 427 West Avon Road.

“American Eagle’s new branch office in Avon continues our 84-year history as a community-based financial institution offering our members great rates on a complete line of consumer banking products,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Dean Marchessault.  “Our new Avon location joins 13 other branches in central Connecticut that serve as active and committed partners in the community.”

To mark its new presence in Avon, American Eagle will host a month-long Grand Opening celebration at the branch office from Monday, April 22 to Saturday, May 18.

Leading American Eagle’s Avon office is Branch Manager Andrew White. White is a seasoned community banking executive who previously worked at the same location when the Avon branch was owned by another financial institution.  White also served as assistant branch manager in neighboring town, Unionville.

The Avon branch office is designed in a modern, member-friendly, open floor setting with approximately 2,500 square feet of main floor space, plus a drive-up transaction window and drive-up ATM.  In addition, the branch will offer a free coin counting machine for members.

The month-long Grand Opening celebration of American Eagle’s Avon branch office includes special product offers, a gift card giveaway featuring more than $2,000 in gift cards to local stores and restaurants, and events suited for all ages which are free and open to the public. On Saturday, May 4, the branch office will host a Paper Shred Day from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or until the truck is full. The community is encouraged to bring their confidential documents for safe, secure and free shredding, with a limit of three boxes per household.  On Saturday, May 18, the branch will host Family Day which will include face painting, balloons and prizes, along with a live DJ on site.
