From Rags to Riches

The St. Thomas Federal Credit Union was chartered on July 17, 1952, under Public Law 467,73d Congress 1st session.

 

The Credit Union was originally chartered as a Community Credit Union, but in the early 1960's, it experienced a very high delinquency status, and was converted to a Selected Group Charter.

 

In 1963, Allen A. Canton joined the Credit Union, and in 1965 became the President. It was under his leadership that the Credit Union was changed to a Selected Group Charter. He served as President for 45+ years.

During the difficult years of growth, the Credit Union was faced with a major disaster and setback. In June of 1973, the offices located in Drakes Passage was destroyed by fire. It took long hours, days, weeks and months to reconstruct the records of the Credit Union.

During it's development stages, the St. Thomas Federal Credit Union had many homes to include the following:

Drakes Passage

2nd Floor of Kentucky Fried Chicken (Waterfront)

Third Floor of People's Bank Building

Christian Building at Market Square

 

We are currently located in our own facilities at 5027 Norre Gade, currently known as the Allen A. Canton Building.

The Credit Union is owned and operated by its members. It is our members' responsibility to preserve and protect its future. We encourage our members to motivate others to envision the dreams that their ancestors had for providing for the future generations of our community.
