Stroller ride with my daughter River at Cedar Point. Having the ease of quickly transferring money to another account allows me to better track my spending for her.

A couple years ago, I decided to expand my business to help the community. In 2017, I formed Cassel Care to work with individuals in the community that have special needs. Of course, I needed a business checking account. I decided to use VLFCU for my business because I had been a member at VLFCU since I was in high school. I have used VLFCU for auto, home and personal loans, so why wouldn’t I use them for my business?! Thank you VLFCU for being part of Cassel Care and its success. It’s great when a Credit Union can be part of building a small business in the community. I plan to use Vacationland Federal Credit Union for my next business expansion, hopefully in the near future.

This is my eldest daughter's first day of kindergarten. Both girls have had a Dollar Dog account since their first birthdays to save for college. Soon these photographs will be all the memory I have of how sweet and little my girls were. Kids grow up in the blink of an eye!

I'm retired now, and I like Vacationland because it takes all the worries about banking away. I went on my first cruise in March. It was amazing! And I didn't have to worry about money, because it was so easy to transfer funds between accounts.

VLFCU helped me finance my education and use savings to help pay for college! I graduated from BGSU May of 2019 and recently moved to Columbus Ohio to take a Special Education teaching job at an elementary school.

We took a nice long weekend getaway to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls! We used funds from our savings account for all our extras and fun excursions.

Our favorite vacation is our permanent camper spot at the Jellystone National Park in Nova, Ohio. We’re able to save money throughout the year with zero cost checking accounts plus hassle-free help from the wonderful employees at VLFCU.

I moved back to Ohio to be near my kids and grandkids. I beat cancer which is a huge milestone. I appreciate the kindness showed by those who work at VLFCU with handling my banking. It gives me more time to spend with my grandkids and making memories with them is what life is all about.

Thanks to VLFCU, we got a new SUV from Smiley Automotive. I love it so much!

VLFCU kept us organized as we combined our accounts before our wedding. The staff was very helpful as we joined accounts. This eliminated so much stress as we paid for our wedding!

So much to imagine in the conversation of two young cousins just walking down a path at Sheldon's Marsh! I love the pictures I can capture with my new phone…savings accounts pay off when the right phone comes up for sale!

I got behind on everything, and VLFCU worked with me until I got caught up!

VacationLand helps keep my finances stable, so I was recently able to take a vacation to Punta Cana.

VacationLand approved my auto loan, which allowed me to purchase my 1984 Camaro Z-28. WOW, what a car!

My son had to have brain surgery because he had deadly seizures. Driving back and forth from hospitals and doctor’s appointments was taking a toll financially, and we decided to trade in our truck for a new car with better mileage. When everything else in life was completely out of our control and we felt completely defeated, VacationLand was able to help us alleviate a little bit of the stress and help us get a small amount of control back. Brendan is our survivor. Thank you for helping make it easier for us to get him back and forth to his appointments and surgery.

Our family has hosted three high school foreign exchange students over the last four years. We have tried to give them all a different experience and traveled to some great locations from Key West, Niagara Fall, to the Grand Canyon. We did this while using our Vacationland credit and debit cards the whole way without difficulties.

My best memory with Vacationland starts back in the fall of 2016. In the beginning of that year, I had lost my car in a T-bone accident and went without a car until August. It wasn’t until I worked at Cedar Point that a car on Foster Chevy's lot caught my attention. As I took steps to getting that car, out of 4 other institutions VLFCU took the chance to loan to me and finance my first car! I am forever grateful to VLFCU and continue to be satisfied knowing there is a team of people willing to help someone like me in true need. Thank you all!

We were able to spend 10 days in London & Paris with my niece and her family who moved over there 2 years ago. Vacationland helped me make sure I had access to my funds with my credit card with minimal fees.

Your credit union allowed me to purchase a car that has enough room for my growing family to fit in. Thank you so much for believing in me.

I found the right motorcycle for me and wanted to make it mine fast! I called my friends at VLFCU and was approved the very same day. It pays off to be a member and have decisions made locally.

Being a first-time homebuyer, I was very nervous. Trisha at VacationLand Federal Credit Union made it very smooth and easy by walking me through everything. VLFCU will definitely be my primary financial institution going forward.

I lost my mom totally unexpectedly this spring. These flowers are from her funeral. Everyone who knew my mom knew she loved her flowers. During my grieving process, I have taken many photos of my mom's flower garden. VLFCU helped me over the years help save for an emergency savings account. I really thought, when would I ever use it? In finding my new normal, I’ve used my savings to travel like my mom always loved to do. One day I will share all these new photos again with her in Heaven.

It was the eve before we were to take our 17-year-old daughter 2.5 hours away from home to Nationwide Children's Hospital for a second infusion of Rituxan, a chemotherapy medication they are using to treat her Orbital Myositis due to her Crohn's disease. My minivan, my main source of transportation, started acting weird on my way home from work. I was able to get to our local Auto Zone where the van would no longer go in reverse, neutral or drive. My transmission completely went out with no warning which meant I was looking at a $3,000+ repair! Having one child with a medical diagnosis is hard enough, but we have two other daughters with completely unrelated medical diagnoses requiring us to travel to Columbus and Toledo Mercy Children's Hospital for IV treatments monthly which is costly for us. VacationLand Federal Credit Union came to my rescue! I placed a call to their loan officer and explained everything to them, and they went above and beyond to ensure I was taken care of! They were very empathetic, caring and so sweet through the entire process truly making me feel like family! They gave me hope and the light I needed to get through the dark tunnel I was going through feeling like I just couldn't handle anymore that life was throwing my way! Without them I would be absolutely lost! Thank you, VacationLand on Hayes Avenue, for always being top notch and the best at what you do! You made miracles happen that allowed me to get the new transmission so I can continue to take care of our miracles! I am forever grateful.

As a local business owner, I believe the best business practice is to contract locally. When we were ready to start renovations for the Penn Station and Toft’s Dairy on Route 250, we contacted VacationLand Federal Credit Union to discuss financing. The results have been fantastic, satisfying both tourists and locals.
