Tornado-damaged CU to reopen in Alabama
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (7/12/12)--Six months after the building was severely damaged by a tornado, Secure First CU will celebrate the grand re-opening of its main branch in Birmingham, Ala., on July 19.

A tornado ripped a large portion of the roof off the building on Jan. 23 and also did structural damage to the drive-thru, second floor and front entrances (News Now Jan 25).

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 9 a.m. on July 19. The credit union will celebrate with its members all day with door prizes and giveaways.

"We are grateful that no one was injured and the credit union has been able to operate after sustaining such considerable damage," said Jordan Sullivan, Secure First president. 

Secure First has kept its main branch in operation during the renovation through the use of a mobile unit from Pensacola, Fla.-based Pen Air CU.
