MILWAUKIE, Ore. -- Clackamas Federal Credit Union has been named business of the year-for the second time in three years--by the Oregon City Chamber of Commerce.
Oregon City also honored CFCU's Community Development Officer Margy Lynch, naming her citizen of the year.
CFCU was the only financial institution in the county considered for business of the year honors. The award acknowledges CFCU's active community involvement.
