Celebrating its 32nd annual meeting and banquet Friday night, members of the Halifax County Community Federal Credit Union heard guest speaker Rev. Frank E. Coleman Jr. expound on themes of community.

Coleman, pastor at First Baptist Church of Ferry Street, focused on the need to fix communities, which he said must begin with fixing families that are the core of any community.

“We must all come together to make this a strong community,” he told his listeners, noting that families also “need fixing.” Coleman urged the recognition of authority within each family — the person who teaches other family members morals, equity and fairness to all.

Members also elected three of their peers to serve two-year terms on the credit union board of directors. Newly elected directors are Dr. G. Frederick Hamlor, a recently retired doctor with the Volens Family Practice; J. Aubrey Houghton, a charter member of the Tri-County Community Action Agency who has served on the credit union board for more than 30 years; and Mary Jane Collie, Compensation and Benefits Manager with the Human Resources Department of Halifax Regional Hospital.

Recognized for their years of service to the board were two outgoing members, Treasurer Linda Owen and Vice Chairman Dennis Stewart.

Members re-elected Frederick L. Betts, Silvana Hailey and Deloris Suitt to serve two-year terms on the Credit Committee.

Reporting to the membership on ongoing trends, Treasurer Linda Owen said the Halifax County Community Federal Credit Union continues to grow with 5,177 members in February 2103, compared with 5,092 a year earlier.

The credit union made 9,331 loans in February, compared with only 9,110 loans in February 2012.
