of being a member of PFCU. Even younger people—those too

young to need a mobile site or even a checking account—will find more for them at Premier Financial in 2013 as the credit union ramps up what it does for children of members.

Schaar said they will be creating small areas at all branches which will include tables and activities for children to enjoy while their parents are meeting with member service representatives.

In addition, PFCU once again will be at the Mid-Shores Home Builders Association, Inc. Home & Garden Expo to be held March 1-3 in New Holstein with a booth for children to do a craft activity.

Before Easter, the Easter Bunny will be making a visit to all the branches (watch local newspapers for a schedule of his visits), and then the day before Easter (March 30) the annual Easter Egg Hunt will be sponsored again by PFCU at Civic Park in New Holstein.

Schaar said a few more activities are being planned for kids in spring and summer.

The grown-ups, meanwhile, might want to check out loan specials which are offering the lowest loan rates the credit union has ever offered. Loans are possible on everything from vehicles to boats, campers, garden tractors, mortgage refinances, home equity and more. The special will be in effect at least through March 31; please see PFCU’s ad elsewhere in this section for rate information. Certain restrictions may apply.

This year is shaping up to just continue 2012’s busy but successful year, one which saw PFCU celebrate its 50th anniversary with a variety of well-received events.

“The Credit Union continues to grow,” Nothem said. “Assets were up as of the end of the year, while our capital ratio increased as well at the end of the year.”
