Union Bay Credit Union opens on Hornby

There's a new Union Bay Credit Union branch on Hornby Island.

DORIS SAVOIE cuts the ribbon to officially open the new Union Bay Credit Union branch on Hornby Island.

After the opening of Hornby Island’s new medical clinic — with a huge amount of support from the community, Union Bay Credit Union and director Chris Weix — its former location was going to be vacant.

Locally known as the Doris Savoie Building because of her instrumental involvement in starting the first medical clinic on Hornby Island back in the ’70s, the building has a new tenant.

It was only fitting that Savoie be invited to cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the new Union Bay Credit Union’s Hornby Island branch.

The Union Bay Credit Union is grateful to HIRRA (Hornby Island Resident and Ratepayers Association) for allowing them the opportunity to renovate and rent the centrally located Savoie Building where credit union members can now walk, ride, hike or drive to.

It is close to the community hall, school and Co-Op and truly now At the Heart of Our Communities, Leading by Example.

Word got out and many attended the grand opening. Hornby Island School even got a tour and a peak in the vault.
