Flag raising symbolizes United Federal Credit Union’s commitment to “United” values

ST. JOSEPH, MI (December 20, 2015) — United Federal Credit Union (UFCU) observed the completion of a major building renovation with a flag-raising ceremony on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at corporate headquarters on State Street in St. Joseph, Michigan.

The color guard from American Legion Post 568 in Stevensville, Michigan, joined UFCU staff to mark the milestone. The flag was raised to full staff, then briefly lowered to half-mast to honor fallen soldiers, and finally raised again to full staff.

“When I think about this flag and what it symbolizes, I am grateful to those who sacrificed so we might enjoy our freedom,” said UFCU President/CEO Gary Easterling. “We are ‘one nation indivisible,’ which means we are united as a group of individuals who benefit from the strength of the whole.”

In March 2015, UFCU observed the grand opening of its new flagship branch on South State Street. The completion of that project allowed for the remodeling of the former flagship branch/corporate office building located on adjacent property into the new corporate headquarters.
