This year, Shoreline Hometown Credit Union has 3 board members running for election.
Below is a list of the candidates and a short bio of each candidate.
We will have some great door prizes, as well as food and a cash bar.
LuAnn Helgeson spent most of her life in the Valders/Manitowoc area. In 1990 LuAnn accepted a job as Office Manager/accounting for The Metal Corporation here in Two Rivers. Because of her job at The Metal Ware Corp., LuAnn felt it was right to keep it local to shop, use doctors and do banking in Two Rivers. It was Shoreline Credit Union where LuAnn decided to do her banking.
Seven years ago LuAnn moved to the Green Bay area. “Last year Shoreline Credit Union opened a branch on the east side of Green Bay. It seems like they missed not seeing me in Two Rivers so they came to me in Green Bay,” says LuAnn.
