MMFCU Celebrates 60 Years of Service in June

Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union (MMFCU) celebrated its 60th anniversary this past June with a great evening of events. We had a beautiful night that featured a visit from Minnie Mouse and a raffle for our attendees with great prizes.

The children in attendance got to enjoy a bounce house, caricatures, cotton candy, balloon art, and more. Our attendees also got to eat some delicious pulled pork sandwiches. It was great to see such a big turnout by our members and community! It added to the excitement of our anniversary celebration.

As part of the celebration, MMFCU’s President/CEO, Chuck Albrecht, and Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Secretary Kathy Harrington, presented the Minnesota Credit Union Builders Award to Mrs. Don Eschenbacher.  Her husband Don played a vital role in the success of our credit union early on.  

The names of the Minnesota Credit Union Builders Award recipients and the contributing credit unions are permanently displayed in the Minnesota Credit Union Network’s lobby as a tribute to their accomplishments. 

Chuck also spoke about how Mid-Minnesota got its start and where we’re headed. 

“We believe in helping our neighbors achieve the American dream,” Chuck said. “We believe in helping our members send their children to college and, we believe in helping our members retire with confidence”. 

“Today, MMFCU celebrates our 60th anniversary and continues to live out our service pledge set by our seven founding members in 1956.” 

Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union started as the Northwest Employees Credit Union in June 1956. We became the Brainerd Community Federal Credit Union in August 1970. We changed our name for good in 1982 when we became Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union. 

Today we are proud to say that we have grown to well over 37,000 members and have over $257,678,149 in assets! However, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our members.

Our member / owners are what make Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union what it is today and it has been amazing to see how we’ve grown over the past 60 years. 

We are incredibly thankful for the years of service we have been able to give, and we look forward to many more to come.
