Haxtun Community Federal Credit Union (Haxtun, CO) was organized in 1938 and has been a benefit to its community from the very beginning. For example, when fire ravaged its community, the credit union was at the center of helping folks get back on their feet. Earlier this year, they began a major remodel of their office. The original building was relocated to their current address, it was a former small restaurant and an old building. In the process of the remodel, they discovered old tin ceiling tiles that they effectively incorporated into the design. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that this mainstay in the community used all local contractors. On International Credit Union Day (Oct. 19, 2017) they celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Chamber of Commerce, an all-day open house, refreshments and drawings for giveaways. Staff includes Kristin Hadeen (manager), Talya Campbell (Asst. mgr) and Lakesha Hershfeldt (member service rep).
