2020: Celebrating 70 Years of Service

December 9, 2019

I’m excited to share that this year marks RCU’s 70th anniversary. Thanks to you and all our valued Members, we’ve been honored to provide affordable financial services and support to our communities for the past seven decades.

On January 19, 1950, seven employees of the County of Sonoma created our credit union as a safe means for county employees to pool their money and provide bridge loans to each other between paychecks. This spirit of “people helping people” is exactly what credit unions are all about. And although we’ve grown and added many services and locations over the past 70 years, helping people is always at the heart of everything we do.
