|Demolition of the Portage Credit Union is underway. Crews have begun tearing down the old facility following a week of salvaging organized by Youth For Christ. YFC Assistant Executive Director Jim Ritskes says they were able to team up with both the Golden Plains Baptist Church and the Portage Evangelical Church to recycle usable materials for their programs.
Ritskes estimates they were able to save about 60% of the inside. Portage Credit Union General Manager Dave Omichinski says the old building had run it's course and it's a good feeling to see some of the materials being put to good use.
