Honor Celebrates Allendale Member Center Ribbon Cutting
ALLENDALE, MICHIGAN – NOVEMBER 3, 2022 – Honor celebrated the official ribbon cutting of its new Allendale Member Center on Friday, October 28th. Honor CEO, Scott McFarland, and Allendale’s Member Center Manager, Abbey Vaughan, began the celebration with a welcome to those in attendance, including Richard Atwell, representing the Honor Board of Directors and members of the Leadership Team present.
Extending his gratitude to the community and the stakeholders who helped make this member center a reality, McFarland commented, “We can’t do it without our volunteer board of directors. As a credit union, we know that’s what makes us special. We’re owned by our members, and our board is a volunteer board. They support our visions of growing in these communities, knowing that financial services are a valuable piece of any community.”
McFarland next introduced Member Center Manager Abbey Vaughan, who spoke on what it means to be new to the community, future relationships, providing a positive space, and the joy of being welcomed into Allendale.
Others who spoke at the ceremony included the Executive Director of the Allendale Area Chamber of Commerce, Rebecca Wildeboer, Allendale Charter Township Supervisor Adam Elenbaas, and Michigan State Representative, Luke Meerman.
The theme of community and belonging were of no shortage, as Wildeboer touched on the difference Honor Credit Union makes and the feeling of belonging as you walk in the door. Allendale Charter Township Supervisor Adam Elenbaas echoed these words and commented, “we ‘get’ to do this every day,” describing what it means to create a positive atmosphere and impact in the community.
