Afena FCU's Shafer Retires
MARION, Ind. -- For 30 years Afena Federal Credit Union Board Member Terry Shafer has been working to make the credit union the resource locals turn to for their financial needs.
Since joining in 1978, Shafer's dedication to credit union service has helped Afena FCU consistently increase its membership, grow its deposits and add innovative products and services to its offerings.
"I've always believed that the harder the work, the greater the reward," said Shafer, who enjoyed a 24-year career in production at GM, is now enjoying his much deserved retirement. "Being involved with the credit union over the past three decades has taught me the importance of financial planning and preparation. So now I can just relax and enjoy retirement with my wife Brenda and our extended family."
Shafer's family includes children Terry Jr., Nancy, Julie and Amy, five grandchildren and one great grandchild--who keep him busy rooting for their sports teams. He is also active with his church, coaching upward basketball and enjoys walking and trail biking.
