Sixty concerned owners, business members and residents of Wardsville and area attended a public meeting tonight regarding the Thamesville Credit Union Wardsville Branch at St John’s Presbyterian Church, Wardsville.
Mauro Ricordi, General Manager , assured the group that “gossip” concerning the closing of the branch was untrue. He explained that, with our present economy and the fact that most days only 17 walk in customers use the services at the branch, hours of business would have to be evaluated. His first suggestion was to have the branch open only one day a week. The attendees were deeply concerned regarding this proposal. Suggestions were made in an attempt to not have services cut.
The Board of Directors is looking for ideas on how better to service the TCU-Wardsville Branch.
- a more active advertising campaign highlighting TCU services
- a more active drive for membership
- extended hours once a week to better serve people that work out of the community
- Saturday openings.
Mr. Ricordi extended an invitation to members to attend the Annual General Meeting January 14, 2009 in Thamesville.
Ricordi thanked everybody for coming out and a offered special thanks to Mary Simpson from “Your Wardsville” for helping promote the meeting.
