Jeanne D’arc Credit Union Celebrates 100th Anniversary With Multiple Events And Special Logo
LOWELL – Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union will celebrate its 100th anniversary on February 12, 2012. To commemorate this important date in our history, a yearlong celebration is planned which will include special events for members, employees and the community.
Our new anniversary logo, which incorporates spindles from former textile mills to illustrate the number 100, is designed to recognize both Jeanne D’Arc’s history as well as the industrial history of our birth place.
“This is a significant milestone for Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “We are excited to share this yearlong celebration with our members and the region. Their belief in Jeanne D’Arc’s mission has allowed us to grow and help the community prosper over the past 100 years. We couldn’t be more appreciative of their faith in us.”
Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union was founded as a cooperative credit society designed to encourage frugality and economic self-sufficiency among Lowell’s Franco-American population. Jeanne D’Arc has grown substantially over the past 100 years, but its mission remains the same – to help each member make smart financial choices.
