Novato Branch Relocates on June 21
More convenience for more Members
Last month, we announced the relocation of our Novato branch would likely happen between the end of June and middle of July. 

As work has progressed, we now have an official opening date: Monday, June 21! Our new location will be 1539 South Novato Blvd., in the Nave Center, and less than 30 feet from Novato’s main post office. 

What does this mean for our northern Marin and southern Sonoma County Members? Our new location is on one of Novato’s main thoroughfares, and is part of the Nave Shopping Center, where the iconic Pini Hardware is located, as well as a Grocery Outlet, the city’s main post office, and several shops and eateries –– making it easy to link multiple errands. 

You’ll find a brand-new ATM and other updated equipment at the relocated branch. But our staff remains the same people you’ve come to know and trust through the years.

Signs will be placed at the current branch on Digital Drive, advising Members that the branch will be shuttered by day’s end, Friday, June 18, while the old ATM will remain operational through day’s end, June 21.

Please stop by the new branch, and see what better banking looks like in Novato!
Normal Times Return?
Are you ready for a return to normal? If the prognosticators at the state of California are correct, and the health commissioners of our respective five counties agree, we should see some big changes starting Tuesday, June 15.

Community First expects its 11 branches to go back to standard hours on June 15: 9a to 5:30p, Monday through Friday. Meanwhile, our in-house Call Center will continue its hours of 8:30a to 5:30p, Monday through Friday, and 9a to 1p on Saturday.

Additionally, our banking bot, Maggie, is available to you 24/7, as is our online banking and mobile banking app, and 34,200 CO-OP ATMs nationally.

The CDC has said that those who are fully vaccinated can go maskless. Our region continues its climb to full vaccinations …
Arlene Colombini Scholarship Recipients 
Another graduation season is upon us. Community First is excited to celebrate the Class of 2021. 

Community First was founded by local teachers in 1959 and has supported local education ever since. 

One way we continue to support local students is through our annual Arlene Colombini Scholarship. CFCU awards four students in Lake and Mendocino counties with a $1,000 scholarship to help kickstart their next educational endeavor.

The scholarship is open to all Lake and Mendocino graduating high school seniors and college students enrolled at Mendocino College. 

Community First congratulates this year’s recipients: 

  • Emily Redfearn of Ukiah High School
  • Maya Sholin of Mendocino High School
  • Arturo Molina Alonso of Lower Lake High School
  • Mason Elsa of Clear Lake High School

The scholarship is named for Arlene Colombini in recognition of her 60-plus years of service to CFCU. Arlene continues on as Community First’s longest-serving volunteer and Board Member.

Congratulations Class 2021!
