Lawrence Mich. again gets an FI--a CU
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (1/8/10)--The village of Lawrence, Mich., will get a financial institution again after being without one since Fifth Third Bank closed its doors last spring. This time it will be a credit union. The Van Buren Intermediate School District board Wednesday approved a lease agreement with Oshtemo-based Educational Community CU to open a branch in the Junior Special Services Facility on the school district's campus, south of downtown (Kalamazoo News Jan. 7). School Supt. Jeffrey Mills told the newspaper the board's goal was to have the branch open before the end of the school year. He said the credit union would not only provide the village a financial institution but it also would teach students about financial literacy.
