Local Lending Co-op Shows Appreciation for Its Customers

Gerrit Schouten Lone Star Ag Credit Appreciation Dinner

It's not often that a lender treats its customers to a fine dining experience. But at the rural lending co op Lone Star Ag Credit, hosting customer appreciation dinners for its members is an annual event.

Recently, the co-op's Stephenville office held a dinner at The N at Hardway Ranch. Approximately 200 borrowers attended the event to enjoy good food and fellowship. Every customer received a parting gift, and many lucky attendees also received gift cards.

"We are lucky to see our loyal customers at this gathering each year," said Gerrit Schouten, Lone Star credit office president in Stephenville. "They are the reason our association continues to prosper."

Schouten took a few moments before the dinner to congratulate borrowers on their part in the co-op's success in 2016. He also recognized stockholder Jessica Dammers, a senior at Stephenville High School who participated in the Erath County 4-H Pasture to Packer program.

This year the 100-year-old lending cooperative is hosting dinners for each of its 16 branches across North and Central Texas, as well as open houses, annual stockholder luncheons and other events. The Stephenville office serves Eastland, Erath, Hood, Palo Pinto, Parker, Shackelford, Stephens, Throckmorton and Young counties.
