Lisbon Community Federal Credit Union held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Lewiston branch on Wednesday, December 21, 2011, a major step forward in the Credit Union’s expansion into the Lewiston-Auburn area.

Established in 1959, Lisbon Community Federal Credit Union offers a variety of loan and savings programs including savings & checking accounts, money market & IRA accounts, certificates, free VISA debit cards, home banking, bill payer and eStatements. On the lending side, mortgages, construction loans and home equity lines of credit will be offered in addition to new and used vehicle loans, recreational vehicles and VISA credit cards.

“The Board welcomes the Lewiston-Auburn community to our beautiful new Sabattus Street Branch to experience how our members have been ‘building futures’ and ‘preserving dreams’ for over 50 years,” said John Silvestri, President of the Board of Directors, highlighting the Credit Union’s tagline. “We are anxious to have people in the community learn firsthand how we take very seriously the Credit Union philosophy of ‘People Helping People’.”

Located at 802 Sabattus Street, on the corners of Old Greene Road and Montello Street, the Credit Union sits on the former site of Thorne’s Corner grange hall, most recently utilized as cold storage space for area businesses. Adjacent to Roopers Beverage and Redemption Center, the new full-service branch will feature a drive-up area, a SURF Network ATM and participate in Shared Branching.

Those attending the ribbon cutting included Lewiston Mayor Larry Gilbert, Auburn Mayor Richard Gleason, state representatives, the Lewiston-Auburn Economic Growth Council, Androscoggin Chamber of Commerce and Board Members and staff of the Credit Union.

“This is a real success story that represents the true partnership and collaboration in this community,” said George Dycio, Economic Development Specialist for the Lewiston-Auburn Economic Growth Council. “By working closely with the Credit Union’s Realtor, we were able to identify several sites along Sabattus Street that were considered to be viable sites for the new credit union.  It also took the collaboration between the property owners, the Growth Council and the realtor working together in good faith in order to make this project a reality today.”

“Lewiston-Auburn is a strategically important location for the Credit Union,” said Treasurer/Manager George Roy. “We are committed to investing into the community here, which is one of the reasons why we hired three new employees from Lewiston as well as local contractors like Landry/French Construction Company, Pine Knoll Landscaping, L.P. Poirier Excavating, Roy I. Snow Electrical, Royal Flooring, Neokraft Signs, Spillers and others to help make this building a reality.”

Lisbon Community Federal Credit Union’s Lewiston branch hours will match the Lisbon main office; Monday through Thursday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Friday from 9:00 to 6:00 PM, and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. On weekdays and Saturday, the drive-up will open at 7:30 AM.
