Crescent Credit Union here has created its own Chairman's Club to recognize employees who exceed expectations in serving members.

CEO Robert W. Gustafson said the club is just another way of recognizing employees who go that "extra mile'' without being asked.

"It's for those who volunteer to do extra work or go out of their way to help other people,'' Gustafson said.

Since its formation last month, nine employees were named as members. All were past winners of the Merton B. Tarlow Award-named after the CU's former chairman whose father and uncle founded the CU in 1919.

They are Rosemary Corcoran, Amanda Davis, Meg Downey, Pat Gamache, Gail Haggerty, Joyce Hill, Robin Kirby, Mary Shaughnessy and Rita Trapp.

In addition to being recognized during the CU's annual employee dinner, Chairman's Club members are treated to a luncheon with CU board chairman Herbert Nagle and Tarlow, who still serves on the board.

Gustafson said senior management selects club members during annual reviews. CCU is community chartered and has $300 million in assets.
