Yucca Valley, CA — Frontwave Credit Union has been named the Best Bank in the Morongo Basin by Hi-Desert Publishing Company’s 2020 Best of the Best Readers’ Choice Awards.
Each year, Hi-Desert Publishing asks its readers in Morongo Valley, Joshua Tree, Twentynine Palms and Yucca Valley to nominate their favorite local businesses, restaurants and services in over 70 categories. The top nominees in each category then go head-to-head in a month-long voting process.
This year, Frontwave was nominated in both the banking and lending services categories, and honored to ultimately be declared the winner for Best Bank. After several years of being named a runner-up, this is the first year Frontwave Credit Union has taken the top spot for Best Bank in the annual poll, beating out big bank competitors like U.S. Bank and Chase Bank.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized by the community alongside Morongo Basin fixtures like Cactus Flower Florists & Farms, the Joshua Tree Coffee Company and KCDZ 107.7 FM,” said Bill Birnie, President/CEO for Frontwave Credit Union. “This recognition is proof that we’re delivering value to our community. I want to thank all of our Dream Makers for their dedication to our members, membership, and the communities that we serve.”
