RCU remembers history with new office
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Downtown Eau Claire got a slight makeover Wednesday afternoon, as Royal Credit Union marked the opening of a new office with a ribbon cutting event.
This new building replaces the old downtown office. Local Artist, Dan Ingersoll, helped commemorate the new building and the credit union’s history with a unique sculpture.
The CEO of Royal Credit Union, Brandon Riechers, says paying tribute to history is an important part of the new building.
“It’s great to be opening a branch today that is within a mile of where this all started in a in our Uniroyal branch. Looking back on what’s happened since that time. This is really just the icing on the cake when you think about a gateway entrance to the downtown area,” Riechers said.
The new office also includes a Royal Credit Union History Exhibit with artifacts from Royal’s days at the former Uniroyal Tire Plant.
