    (Concord, NH) – Lisa Gilbert joined New Hampshire Federal Credit Union in 1987 as a part-time Computer Operator and later that year became a full-time Computer Operator. Her attention to detail and knowledge of technology led to her promotion as Department Manager in 1995. As technology advanced, so did Lisa’s skills. In 2000, she became Information Systems Manager. She then moved into the role of Information Systems Administrator.

    Lisa’s skillset broadened and in 2017, she became Operations Manager. In this role, Lisa handles concerns members may have with debit cards, online banking, and much more. Over the years, Lisa has seen many changes. She states: “I have witnessed the Credit Union’s growth from one to three offices, with the opening of the North Main Street and Lee locations, and then the creation of the Centers for Finance & Education.”

    With the introduction of email, the internet, and upgrading to electronic services, Lisa learned to better serve members using the new technologies. She has also watched NHFCU’s assets grow to $330 million.

    Through the transitions, Lisa’s top priorities remain the same – to show empathy and professionalism, and an eagerness to provide options and solutions for members.

    Rochester, NH – Cornerstone VNA, a local nonprofit home health and hospice care provider, recently received a generous donation of $484 from the HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) students at the Richard W. Creteau Regional Technology Center at Spaulding High School in Rochester, NH. This donation is a result of a special bake sale that the students organized to support the Kiddie Cornerstone Fund at Cornerstone VNA.

     

    The Kiddie Cornerstone Fund was established in 2016 to provide gifts for the organization’s pediatric patients to bring smiles to their youngest patients and to promote hope and healing at home. In addition to gifts, such as books, coloring books, and small toys, funds are also used to purchase gas cards to assist with transportation to medical appointments for families in need.

     

    “Childhood illnesses are scary for young patients and their families, and the financial burden can be so overwhelming,” shares Erika Lee, Director of Advancement. “Thanks to donations to our Kiddie Cornerstone Fund, we can provide an extra layer of support in the form of toys and books, special equipment, gas cards, and even gifts over the holidays. We are very grateful to the students for their efforts to support our young patients.”

     

    HOSA Co-President, Mia Baillargeon shares, “We are fortunate enough to have a great group of ladies [students] this year that are passionate about serving the community and reaching out to those who may need it most.  Of course we could have raised money for ourselves, but this was something more honorable, that makes an impact on others.” HOSA Advisor, Lisa Kumph adds, “Our HOSA group was very excited to be able to support the children in our community. The students and staff at Spaulding High School and the Creteau Tech Center demonstrated their generosity through support of the bake sale.”

     

    For more information or to make a donation to the Kiddie Cornerstone Fund, visit cornerstonevna.org/kiddie-cornerstone-fund or call Erika Lee at 603-332-1133 x1203.

    After much deliberation, the GBCC Board has voted to postpone the Peeper Race, Fall Festival and Annual Dinner because of COVID-19 concerns.  The chamber will continue to hold member meetings at Nippo Lake Golf Club with necessary safety protocols.

    The board will use the remainder of the year to plan and strategize 2022 events.

    We did not come to these decisions lightly... committee members, chamber members, volunteers and board members have put untold hours into planning these events.  We hope that 2022 is a MUCH more event-friendly year!

    At 18, Kaden was in serious financial trouble. “Sweeping my debts under the rug when the monthly bills came in was the norm.” But, he was curious about credit scores and knew his was not good. He just did not know how bad his score really was. By the time Kaden was 31, he knew he had:

    • A low credit score
    • Student loan debt
    • Mounting credit card debt
    • Other bad debts weighing his credit score down

    With nowhere to turn, Kaden kept sweeping until he tripped over the pile under the rug. He was working low-paying jobs, adding to his family and thus, his responsibilities and expenses. Kaden increased his debt load every day just living his life.

    Kaden’s life began changing in the spring of 2019 when he attended a workshop at work about financial wellness – led by NHFCU’s Centers for Finance & Education.

    “At 31 years old, with debt “following” me throughout my adulthood, for the first time, I felt safe, thinking there might be hope, and help. NHFCU’s representative gave me hope that there would be no judgement about my debt situation.” And, after 13 years of continuing to accumulate debt, he saw an opportunity to change his thinking and habits about debt – and eventually change his life.

    Fast forward to December 2020 - Here’s what Kaden has accomplished:

    • He began to clean up the pile of debt buried under the rug and increased his credit scores – up a total of 541 points when combined among the three major credit bureaus:
      • Experian – Up 268 points
      • Trans Union – Up 183 points
      • Equifax – Up 90 points
    • He and his spouse pay their bills on time, every month.
    • They’ve expanded their family to care for a child who needed help and hope – yet continue to live within their means.

    If you are struggling financially, please do this one thing … Make one phone call to NHFCU’s Centers for Finance & Education. Take that step to talk with someone and just go from there. There’s no obligation and they won’t do anything that isn’t beneficial to you. They REALLY care!”

    - Kaden T.
