Pikarski for years of service with FCCU

First Community Credit Union (FCCU) had one employee locally who recently celebrated milestone years of service to the company. She was recognized at the annual Christmas party in December.

Charlotte Pikarski, member service representative team lead in Wahpeton, celebrated her fifth year at the credit union.

During its 81-year history, First Community Credit Union has grown to be North Dakota’s largest Credit Union. As a credit union, FCCU is owned by its members. This is different than other financial institutions which are owned by a select group of stockholders. The Credit Union’s profits are returned to the members in the form of better services, accounts, and favorable rates on savings and loans.
