Your Legacy Federal Credit Union

Your Legacy Federal Credit Union invests $1 million in building expansion

Credit union looks toward the future

TIFFIN, OHIO – Monday, May 10, 2021 – Today, Your Legacy Federal Credit Union, the longest serving credit union in Seneca County with 69 years of operation, broke ground on an expansion of its building at 25 Shaffer Park Drive. The $1 million project is to grow the footprint of the existing property from 5,006 square feet to 6,341 square feet.

The expansion is needed to add additional offices and a conference room, as well as updating the lobby and member service representative line to make it more modern. After consolidating locations in 2019, Your Legacy Federal Credit Union moved existing staff to their 25 Shaffer Park Drive office. The expansion may allow for hiring of additional staff in the future.

JDH Construction of Tiffin is providing contractor services and Encompass Engineers and Architects Inc. of Findlay is the architect for the project.

President/CEO Derek Sidor said he is pleased that Your Legacy Federal Credit Union continues to improve. “I’m excited about this opportunity to expand our building and better serve our members. Our credit union grew $11,025,308 in assets from 2019-2020 with current total assets of $75,848,336, which shows the trust of our members in our services.”

Board Chairman Richard Wyka said, “I’m proud to be part of an organization that is continuing to strive for excellence and serve our members to the fullest.”

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz was excited about the announcement: “Congratulations to Your Legacy Federal Credit Union on your plans to expand your building and invest in our community. Tiffin continues to grow and is showing no signs of slowing down!”

Downtown Tiffin businesses offer “Trick or Treat”

Downtown Trick or TreatA new Tiffin Halloween event, the 1st Annual Downtown Trick or Treat is slated for Friday, Oct. 30 from 3:30-5 p.m. More than 60 businesses, organizations and offices all over downtown Tiffin will be opening their doors to provide candy to children. Afterward, Tom Rodgers Flowers will have cider and donuts for adult trick or treaters from 5-6 p.m.

Organizer Yolanda Gonzales got the idea from a similar event in Owensboro, KY, where she used to live. “It was a win for the community, businesses got positive exposure, kids got candy, caretakers learned more about their community and it was daylight. I found myself entering business that I would not normally go into – it was a wonderful way to meet businesses in town – also meet the people who own the businesses and  people who work there,” she said. “So, I contacted Mr. Montz with the idea and he said it was a great idea – but he needed someone to coordinate it.  I volunteered.”

Gonzales was greeted with excitement and enthusiastic responses from downtown businesses and hopes to make this an annual event. “The owners of Cabin Creations said they used to do this downtown – but no one else remembers.  I hope this becomes a new tradition for Tiffin.”

The following organizations are scheduled to participate, as well as businesses displaying a flyer in the window during the event:

If you have a downtown business, organization or office and would like to join the fun, contact Yolanda Gonzales at yolanda.gonzales4@gmail.com.

This is only one of the many events taking place over the next two weeks. Other upcoming community Halloween events include:

Around the Town is one of the signature events of the Downtown Strategic Plan, and this is the first year that the event will be held downtown and combine both universities.

Several restaurants will be providing free samples, shops and restaurants will hand out coupons and menus, non-profits will provide students with information about how to get involved in their organizations and students can check out local services.

SIEDC Downtown Development Specialist Bryce Riggs is a Heidelberg student the lead organizer of the event. “As a student and lifelong Tiffin resident, I am aware of the opportunities in the community, but the majority of new students don’t know what’s out there or where they can go. Tiffin has so much to offer! I would like other students to know what’s out there, so they can get involved in the local organizations and visit our restaurants and shops,” Riggs said.
