Oakdale Credit Union is a financial cooperative that began serving its members in 1953. The founders realized that there was a need for a new kind of financial institution, a place where ''people help people''. The credit union's first year of operations recorded 57 members and today we have over 10,000. Although much has changed over the years, our original principle for which we were formed remains. Our mission, ''To enhance the financial lives of our members'', is as important today as it was back in 1953. Oakdale Credit Union, with offices in Oakdale, Mauston and Reedsburg, serves the counties of Adams, Columbia, Jackson, Juneau, Monroe, Richland, Sauk, Vernon and Wood.
