    International Credit Union Day is October 21st! — New Dimensions Federal Credit Union

    On October 21, 2021, New Dimensions Federal Credit Union (NDFCU) will join over 56,000 credit unions around the world to celebrate International Credit Union (ICU) Day.

    ICU Day highlights the many ways that credit unions across the world help members improve their financial health and well-being. Because NDFCU focuses on financial education with its members every day, its focus is on member appreciation. They are offering tours of their Silver Street main office location and will have giveaways at all branches on October 21, 2021. They want to show our members the number of people that are working behind the scenes to make their credit union experience a positive one, and we can’t wait to thank them in person.   

    Ryan G. Poulin, CEO, says, “Without our members, we would not exist, and we couldn’t be more honored to serve them.  We strive to enhance financial wellbeing and to fulfill the dreams of all our members.  Many of our members have been with us for over 50 years, and we look forward to working with them in the years to come.”

    Credit unions were built on the principle of “people helping people.” We’ve seen that philosophy in action for more than 100 years, with credit unions providing access to affordable financial products and striving to meet the needs of underserved communities. NDFCU is honored to be a part of this proud tradition.

    As they celebrate their 65 Anniversary, they are inviting their members to visit their Silver Street location on October 21st for ICU and Member Appreciation Day. Tours will be offered from 9 am – 4:30 pm.

    WATERVILLE, ME – June 24, 2021 – Maine-based GHM Insurance is introducing a new shopping portal for people seeking lower-cost options for car insurance, home/renters, business, life insurance, and more. The insurance shopping portal WickedGoodRates.com is locally managed and operated, and provides consumers access to rates from up to 20 well known insurance companies that are competitive against major national insurance carriers, while keeping their business local.

    “Many Mainers have been lured away and taken their insurance business out of Maine,” said Bill Mitchell, President of GHM Insurance.  “WickedGoodRates.com addresses this by giving Mainers another option for competitive insurance rates combined with easy access to friendly, knowledgeable insurance agents who live and work in Maine, and will help Maine consumers make well informed decisions about what coverages and limits are right for them.”

    GHM began developing the new portal in June 2020 which launched in May 2021. “It’s been an amazing project that all came together in May 2021” said Mitchell. “Its initial focus is on helping Mainers save money on car insurance, and we will be quickly adding features for home/renter’s insurance, RVs, business insurance, and life insurance”.

    Founded in 1901, GHM Insurance is a Maine based independent insurance agency representing over 20 insurance companies offering a full range of competitively priced insurance products to over 6,500 Maine families, individuals, and business owners.
