Dennis Juusola recognized for 33 years on the board at FACU

FLOODWOOD, Minn. — The Floodwood Area Credit Union (FACU) held their 79th annual meeting this past week at the Floodwood High School Auditorium. At the meeting, Dennis Juusola was recognized for 33 years of service on the FACU board. Lonna Hutchinson was elected to take his position on the board.

Dennis still recalls being asked if he would be interested in serving on the board. “I said alright and won the election,” he said. “Every three years I kept winning until we set term limits.”
