Their Story

Talk about commitment. To each other?! Yep. To 1st Cooperative? That, too. After getting married, Crystal and Brian have transferred their checking and other accounts from other banks, added Kid’s Club savings accounts and obtained auto loans. Then, came time for a second car. You know, because of the kids.

Hey, Crystal, who gets to drive the new wheels? Sorry, Brian.
