Best of The Lakeshore
Voting open March 8, 2020 – April 8, 2020
Your truly local Credit Union. Shoreline Hometown Credit Union is proud to be a part of The Lakeshore and being the Hometown Credit Union means something to us. At Shoreline Credit Union, we have always been a supporter of our community in Manitowoc County. We focus our commitment by volunteerism, giving and sponsorships. We are very proud of The Hometown Program that we started two years ago. The purpose of this program is to help promote and encourage our membership to eat, drink, and shop at local hometown small businesses. The program has over 100 participating businesses and we offer our members 2X Rewards Points when visiting these businesses. The Rewards Points can then be used for Hometown Gift Certificates.
The Hometown Program has helped the local Lakeshore community greatly! Members have spent over $100,000 at local, participating Hometown Businesses. This equates to $25,000 more staying in the local economy. We have issued over $15,000 in Hometown Reward Gift Certificates to members. The program is no cost to each business. Each business receives an annual rebate of interchange income and they receive a free Marketing Report based on transactions at the business. They will also get free joint marketing as a Hometown Business to drive customers through the door.
We sponsored even more community events in 2019! We were the presenting sponsor for Kites Over Lake Michigan, Cars & Guitars, and the Kiwanis Car and Motorcycle Show. Major sponsorships include Kiwanis Fish Derby, Salvation Army, Miracle League, Adopt-A- Highway, Manitowoc Maritime Museum’s Subfest, Felician Village Car Show and Two Rivers Main Street events such as the Cool City Car Show, Ethnic Fest and the Hometown Christmas Parade.

Born in Iowa and raised in Minnesota, my wife and I chose Two Rivers to call home and raise our family after serving six years in the U.S. Navy. We moved into the area in 1983 and became members of Shoreline Hometown Credit Union at that time. I worked at the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant for the better part of 15 years and have been employed for the last 21 years as the Technology Director for The Cawley Company in Manitowoc. In my spare time I took college courses at the local universities in order to earn a Bachelor of Science degree. I served on the Two Rivers City Council for five years and also served on the Lester Public Library board of directors during that time. It would be an honor and a privilege to serve on the board of directors for Shoreline Hometown Credit Union.
