Tree dedication plaque

LACEY, WASHINGTON —On Tuesday, May 22, 2018, 5:00–5:30 pm, TwinStar Credit Union will commemorate 80 years of service to its members and community. The ceremony, to be held on TwinStar’s campus between its Administrative Headquarters and a recently purchased administration building, includes a dedication to a planted oak tree and the unveiling of a commemorative plaque.

The oak tree symbolizes 80 years of service, stability, our roots in the community and growth. The bronze plaque mounted on rock marks the anniversary.

TwinStar board members from the community, managers and others will attend.

TwinStar Credit Union began as Thurston County Teachers Credit Union in 1938. Many years ago, co-founder Dewey Noblitt, an Olympia High School math teacher, characterized the credit union this way: “We did everything on trust. Loyalty to each other and our personal integrity were our greatest assets.”

Matt Devlin, TwinStar’s chief of marketing, said, “We grew from a schoolteacher’s desk drawer to a credit union with 20 branches, more than 120,000 members and over $1 billion in assets. I’m proud that we still place members first. We want to help them reach their financial goals and to strengthen the communities where we all live and work.”
