Renovations complete at Prospera Credit Union

Grand re-opening of Agassiz branch next Friday will feature Community Wall

After months of renovations, the Prospera Credit Union in Agassiz is ready for its close up.

The branch has been under construction since the beginning of June, and next Friday, the public is invited to join staff and management in a grand re-opening ceremony.

That day, Prospera will unveil their inaugural ‘Community Wall,’ a central space highlighting activities and achievements specific to each community. In Agassiz, the Community Wall will be dedicated to the memory of David McCall, prior Branch Manager of Agassiz branch.

“For more than 35 years, Dave was known for his passion for success, his commitment to his staff, and his dedication to the community. The Dave McCall Community Wall is a sincere tribute to his memory, and honours David’s legacy rooted in community involvement and support,” said Erin Nesci, manager of community and public relations for Prospera.

Members and the general community will be welcomed, on October 28, with a traditional blessing offered by the Seabird Island First Nation.

And one guest who visits during the re-opening will be the winner of a luxurious evening in Vancouver, compliments of Prospera, which includes fine dining, hotel, and round trip limousine transportation.

While the branch did receive some major upgrades over the past few months, it did stay open throughout the entire process.

“It was important for us to remain open and accessible to our members during renovations.  Throughout construction, we maintained a high level of service and convenience for our members, and remained very active in the Agassiz community,” says Bruce Howell, President and CEO of Prospera Credit Union.

Ceremonies for the day begin at 2:30 p.m. on October 28.
