Lynne Wagner has been enjoying more space to spread her wings and celebrated that fact Tuesday with several dignitaries, co-workers and friends.
Mayor Richard Moccia, Edward J. Musante Jr., president of the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce, Joseph Mann, executive director of Norwalk Economic Opportunity Now and Susan Marks, superintendent of schools, were among those joining Wagner and her co-workers for a ribbon cutting Tuesday at the Mutual Security Credit Union's new branch at 295 Westport Ave.
Wagner, the branch manager, said her operation moved from 404 Westport Ave. on June 21. The new location gives the branch, with its impressive façade, a higher profile, in addition to increased space inside and many windows. The branch now has a drive-through window and a depositor's ATM.
The branch was at its previous location for eight years. Mutual Security Credit Union, the Board of Education's credit union, has been in business 55 years. It is the seventh largest credit union in the state.
Now that everyone is settled in at the new branch, it was time for a celebration. In addition to the ribbon cutting, there was cake, a raffle and gift bags.
"This is a special occasion for us," said Larry Holderman, president and CEO. "We worked very hard on this facility. A lot of people, a lot of hours went into it."
"In today's difficult times, I like to call it the tripod," said Moccia. "We need nonprofits, private business and government. The only way we're going to keep that support going is if we keep working together. So I really do appreciate your expanding and offering this new facility. Great interest rates by the way, so we may look at that. To the architects and the design people and everybody, beautiful job. It's just a gorgeous building."
