Message from the President

Summer has arrived! As you enjoy the great outdoors with family vacations, trips to the beach, picnics at the park, or just a relaxing day in the sun with friends, LMCU will continue to make your financial life easy.

We have some exciting things to share with you in this month’s newsletter. Our new Commercial Department has been growing rapidly, assisting dozens of businesses with capital that is helping fuel local economic growth. You can meet the commercial team and learn more about their great work in this newsletter. Below are a few highlights…more detailed information is featured in separate articles. Please take a moment to read about the many ways we are helping ensure you get the best value for your money.

We are pleased to announce construction has begun on our new Knapp's Corner branch. This will bring our branch network to 32 locations. We will also be installing three additional ATMs in the Kalamazoo market. You can find the branch or ATM nearest you on our website, http://www.lmcu.org/.

Rates are still near historic lows. Many customers are discovering the benefits of refinancing and those that are purchasing a new home, just how affordable home ownership can be. We also have a new and exciting product called the SmartMove Mortgage--the idea is smart--there are no closing costs and you set the term of your mortgage so you can own your home debt free sooner. Read more under the “SmartMove Mortgage” heading.

The merger with VML Insurance Agency continues to go well and many customers are enjoying the outstanding service and value the combined LMIA/VML Insurance Agency team is providing.

Our dedicated Investment Advisors are ready to help you plan for your retirement and if you’ve changed jobs recently, assist with your 401(k) rollover.

Auto Center
You’ll find a full array of over 200 quality used cars, competitively priced, at the LMCU Auto Center in Hudsonville. Read on to discover some examples of the great values available.

Thank You
We appreciate your support of LMCU and the many family, friends and neighbors you have referred to LMCU. Enjoy your summer!


Sandy Jelinski, CEO and President
