Widget Financial Welcomes Lake Erie Community FCU Members 


Widget Financial is honored to welcome members of the Lake Erie Community FCU to their Credit Union family. 

On November 1, 2022 the two Credit Unions merged their membership providing members in Girard and Lake City with increased access to expanded products and services. 

“We are excited to welcome members of Lake Erie Community Federal Credit Union” said Matthew Margosian, President & CEO of Widget Financial “We look forward to continuing support of the Girard and Lake City community as we increase membership in these regions. 

Credit Union members can expect to see familiar faces in the Girard branch as the employees of Lake Erie Community have become employees of Widget Financial. Long-time CEO of LECFCU, Kris Russin, has announced her retirement effective at the conclusion of the merger. 

“We thank Kris for her dedication to the Credit Union movement”, said Margosian “In working with her through the merger process, it is evident that she has a passion for serving her membership. We wish her the best in retirement.” 

New branch hours of operation for the Girard lobby are Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
