SPIRE Credit Union Celebrates Member of 80 Years!

Mora, MN - Staff from SPIRE Credit Union's Mora branch and President/CEO Dan Stoltz recently had the pleasure of visiting with Fran Anderson, a member who has been with the credit union for 80 years. Fran first joined Greater Minnesota Credit Union (GMCU merged with SPIRE in 2014) in 1939 when she was just six years old - one of the first 300 members.  She later would work for GMCU as its sole employee. Fran stepped down from her position to care for her two sons, who would also become members.

Fran's father, Harvey Robinson, was a volunteer treasurer for the credit union and worked for an insurance company in the same office as the credit union.  His handmade gavel is currently on display at the SPIRE Mora branch. During her visit, Fran shared her savings book and a financial report from the 1950s.  At that time, savings rates were at 3% and the membership was over 700.

"It was a delight to meet Fran," stated SPIRE President/CEO Dan Stoltz, "we are so thankful for longtime members like her that have trusted us for so many years."

SPIRE Credit Union will be celebrating its 85th anniversary on March 13.  Watch for more stories and photos from SPIRE's 85 years at www.myspire.com and on its social media platforms.
