Mid Oregon Credit Union has reached two significant milestones. The membership has grown to over 20,000 and their lending portfolio has surpassed over $100-million in loans. Spokesman Kyle Frick says this is very good news for the community. "You know we're seeing that actually [home] purchases are starting to pick up. We saw some really great information that net in-migration is still happening, so people are still moving here. But also, on the home loans, people are still refinancing. Rates are still really low and prices are just amazing right now for people that have the opportunity to get out there and get a home." Frick says Mid Oregon Credit Union is working on programs to offer a lower rate on credit cards and free checking programs. They also have a whole series of financial workshops with subject ranging from building a budget to starting a business. All the classes are free; and you can find them on the Mid Oregon Credit Union website; we have a link on our “Links” page.
