MMFCU Merges With Twin Valley Branch

Spring is synonymous with new life, growth and possibilities. It’s a time that brings out the best in many people. When the landscape begins to change and the sun shines a little brighter. Ironically, the season upon us also parallels a season that our credit union has embarked upon.

After a special membership meeting in Twin Valley, members of the Pine to Prairie Federal Credit Union voted to approve a merge with Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union. We are so excited about this partnership and are happy to announce this merger!
Valerie Riepe, Assistant Branch Manager

Much like MMFCU, Pine to Prairie was created nearly 60 years ago by hard-working people who wanted an alternative banking option where they, truly, had a say. MMFCU is proud to be able to offer additional credit union services to the people of Twin Valley and all the surrounding areas.

The horizon for MMFCU is looking bright. Along with the Twin Valley merger, we also finalized plans to open a full-service location in the heart of Detroit Lakes. This will provide us with an opportunity to share the credit union difference even more. With these two additions, MMFCU has now expanded its Field of Membership to serve all of Becker, Cass, Crow Wing, Douglas, Norman, Morrison, Todd, and Wadena counties; as well as the following townships in Otter Tail County: Blowers and Paddock and the Cities of Aitkin, McGregor, and Palisade, in addition to various townships in Aitkin County.

Some of our members may have reservations, as a once small town cooperative continues to grow and expand its reach and membership -- however, we can assure you that you can still expect the same friendly, hometown service you have come to expect at each of our branch locations. We are, and continue to be, People Helping People.

In fact, as our membership continues to grow, this growth will result in MMFCU being able to give back even more to our member/owners in the form of lower interest rates, increased savings rates, and free and low cost services. We will remain faithful to returning profits to our members. It’s truly a win-win for everyone involved.


  1. Great news!! Now, if you would only expand to the Bemidji, MN area, I would be a happy camper!!

  2. This is fantastic for our friends and neighbors in Twin Valley! Credit unions exemplify the community-minded people helping people philosophy that runs deep in Northwest Minnesota folks. This banking alternative will truly enhance the rural lifestyles we love. Best of luck!!
