TBT: Annual Reports from Your Local Financial Partner

Posted on Wednesday, March 26, 2014

With today being our cooperative’s Annual Meeting, we thought it would be fun to dig into the archives to find some earlier annual reports, since this is the traditional “unveiling” of our annual report too.

Appearing in this post are the covers of the final annual report of IHC Employees Federal Credit Union, the first annual report of Three Rivers Federal Credit Union and the 2013 3Rivers Annual Report. Certainly, 3Rivers has an interesting history, from when we were first formed on Valentine’s Day in 1935 to serve the money matters of International Harvester employees through the transition to Three Rivers Federal Credit Union.

Today, 3Rivers has the honor of serving the money matters for those who live, work, worship, volunteer, attends school in or does business in the Indiana counties of Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Noble, Wells and Whitley as well as serving the community of St. Marys, Ohio.

As we've adapted to meet the ever changing and growing needs of our community, we've seen much in terms of products and services that are offered as well. In the early 1980's, products and services were limited to a mere chosen few savings and loan products, not to mention the then fairly new “OWL" ATM network. Today, we are proud to be a trusted financial partner and advocate by serving members for every stage of their lives and business.

Whether it’s checking or savings, first or second mortgages, wealth management or business banking services, nationwide branch/ATM access or leading edge mobile banking and bill payment technologies, 3Rivers members’ continued participation in the cooperative that they've collectively built over 79 wonderful years continues to be more rewarding to our members, our team and our entire community. We’re very excited about serving you in the year and years that are ahead.

As our President and CEO, Don Cates, says in his message that appears in this year’s annual report;

As we recognize the accomplishments of 2013, we look forward to working together to improve the lives of our members and our community in 2014. We are proud to remain a truly LOCAL financial institution for you, our loyal and supportive membership. Thank you for your continued trust in 3Rivers.
