"Did you know that Beacon Credit Union became 77 years old last month? Yes, on August 23, 1939. When I came to work for Beacon (June 13, 1997), we just had one location-Fenwick Drive.
We were in the basement of the Virginia Credit Union League—no drive-thru or ATM and were called Virginia League Central Credit Union (VLCCU). Thursday & Friday afternoons our members would line up out the door to cash or deposit their checks.
When we first moved to Logans Lane, traffic would be backed up and we sometimes had to pull traffic control duties in the parking lot. Now look at us—over 70 some employees, six branches, a service center, a Corporate office and many departments to support staff."
