MOUNT GILEAD — Pillar Credit Union broke ground on Friday, March 12, for their first branch here.
“This project has been in the works for many years,” said Pillar’s President and CEO, Vidya Iyengar, ”and we’re excited to bring the ‘banking built around you’ concept with exceptional service to this community.”
Approximately 20 people attended the brief outdoor ceremony including Tim Siegfried and Tim Abraham, Morrow County Commissioners; Joel Smythe, Executive Director of the Morrow County Chamber of Commerce, along with board members, staff, and friends of Pillar from the area.
The full-service branch located at 860 Meadow Drive is scheduled for completion by early fall of this year.

They expanded their field of membership to include Morrow County in 2008, and added four more counties (Crawford, Wyandot, Richland, and Hancock) in 2018.
