About Changing Seasons Federal Credit Union
As with many credit unions, Bangor Hydro FCU began with a specific need by Bangor Hydro Electric Company (BHE) employees. BHE had been in the habit of lending its employees money to purchase appliances such as refrigerators or stoves. The Maine Public Utility Commission did not think this was a good idea and discouraged the company from continuing the practice. Members of Local 1326, representing the union employees, approached BHE to see if perhaps a credit union could be formed for the employees and their families. Fifteen BHE employees needed to sign the initial petition to start the credit union and each person put in $25 to open an account.
In many cases we are now serving the third generation of family members from BHE. The steadfast loyalty shown to the credit union by employees of BHE and family members is what has given us our strength over the years; years in which we have faced many economic downturns as well as years of thriving economy which has allowed us to purchase land and build our own facility in 2007. Our membership base has expanded to include the towns of Bangor, Brewer, Hampden and many others in this immediate vicinity, but we will always remember that we would not be where we are today without Bangor Hydro Electric Company, its employees and family members over the past 43 years.
