History Tales to feature the history of First Federal

Karen McCormick, retired president and CEO of First Federal, presents the story of the financial institution at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales presentation set for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at First United Methodist Church, 110 E. Seventh St., Port Angeles. The program will be held in the social hall; parking and entry are on Laurel Street.

The story of First Federal — incorporated in 1923 as Lincoln Savings and Loan Association — is the story of Port Angeles and the communities of the North Olympic Peninsula. From the day it first opened the doors of its small office in the Aldwell Building on Laurel Street, First Federal has been a source of growth and stability to the community.

Upon her retirement in 2009, McCormick was commissioned to tell First Federal’s story. She joins award-winning author Rebecca Redshaw in bringing this tale to life in the book “Your First Fed,” a story about an institution, a community and its people.

McCormick worked for First Federal for 32 years, beginning as a teller and advancing through the managerial ranks to become its president and CEO. In 2003, US Banker Magazine named McCormick one of the “25 Most Powerful Women in Banking.” She is now employed as the Executive Director of First Federal Community Foundation.

History Tales is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Clallam County Historical Society’s office at 360-452- 2662 or email to artifact@olypen.com.
