The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce held its monthly networking coffee Tuesday at Geaux Mail located at 1152 Texas Avenue. The Chamber awarded Business of the month to Sabine Federal Credit Union and Employee of the Month to Amber Segura from Total Impressions Salon.

Sabine FCU began in 1948 to serve the employees of the DuPont SRW plant in Orange, Texas. Since then, they’ve grown to serve anyone that lives, works, worships, or attends school in Orange, Hardin and Jefferson counties. Sabine FCU is very community minded and was instrumental in bringing the Rachel’s Challenge program, an anti-bullying campaign, to the area. They participate in many of our local events, including Cops and Kids, Lamar State College Orange events & orientation, the Lions Club Carnival, Shangri La Trash Off and the Christmas Parades along with providing financial education and other types of assistance to many other local groups. Each year, six lucky Orange County High School students are the recipients of a one thousand dollar college scholarship.  They are very supportive of the chambers students of the month program and all other chamber activities.

Sabine FCU offers savings and checking accounts, as well as, IRA’s and certificates of deposit. They can meet all your lending needs with competitive rates on auto, boat, personal, home mortgage, home equity, construction loans and much more. They have two convenient locations in Orange, a toll free number and a user friendly website with online banking and free bill pay to meet all your financial needs.

Kristen Williams accepted the plaque, sponsored by David Self Ford, honoring Sabine FCU as the Business of the Month, as well as gift certificates to Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Bridge City and David Self Ford along with a candy jar from Complete Staffing.
