On January 12, 2022, Cedar Point Federal Credit Union officially opened its 6th branch in Southern Maryland. The new Waldorf location is the first branch Cedar Point has built-in Charles County. The credit union is thrilled to now have physical locations in every county in Southern Maryland as represented in its community charter. Cedar Point is elated to be out in the community to better serve its members.

Cedar Point was excited to have its board members in attendance as well as representatives from the Charles County library system, Charles County Chamber of Commerce, and other honored guests. On a cold winter’s day, bundled and masked, attendees were eager to celebrate the opening of this long-dreamed branch. After years of planning and hard work, Charles County has a Cedar Point branch of its own.

The new branch, just across the street from Target in Waldorf, is a testament to the growing technology of our day. The state-of-the-art design and security make it the first of its kind for the credit union. This new location serves as a new concept for how Cedar Point does business, envisioning new ways to connect and serve the Tri-County area. The layout and the equipment in this location are not only sleek and stylish but intuitive and innovative, making it easy for both members conducting business and team members going about their daily tasks.

The sentiment was echoed in the words of Cedar Point’s CEO Charles Roach on that day. “Our membership is open to everyone in Charles County,” said CEO Charles Roach at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “If you live here or work here, you can be a member of Cedar Point.  We hope to expand going into the future [for] all Charles County residents. So this is the [next step] in what they need and what they want.”

77 years ago, Cedar Point began as a small credit union in St. Mary’s County. Named after the point of land on which the local Navy Base sits, this credit union has stood tall over three-quarters of a century, as a pillar of the community. Cedar Point continues to be a beacon for the community, like the Cedar Point lighthouse from which it takes its logo. Though a great milestone, this is only the beginning for the hometown credit union. We believe we will see great things in the future for Cedar Point.

Cedar Point is a community credit union, organized to serve those who live, work, worship, attend school in or regularly conduct business in Charles, Calvert & St. Mary’s counties in Maryland. For more information on Cedar Point including its locations and hours, please visit www.cpfcu.com.
