Community First was established in 1975 to improve the quality of our members' lives by providing them with high quality, competitive financial products and services that anticipate and exceed their needs. Our mission is to be our members' primary financial services provider by:

  • Earning and maintaining member loyalty and trust
  • Maintaining a balance between sound growth, earnings and reserves
  • Providing a challenging and rewarding environment for our employees
  • Contributing to the well-being of the communities we serve
Our vision is to consistently demonstrate to our members and potential members that Community First is the best choice for the majority of their financial business and a place where everybody counts, everybody cares, everybody delivers-every day!

With over $2.9 billion in assets Community First Credit Union serves 134,947 members in Northeastern and East Central Wisconsin. Membership is open to anyone who lives or works in Outagamie, Winnebago, Calumet, Manitowoc, Kewaunee, Waupaca, Brown, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Oconto, Shawano, Sheboygan, and Waushara counties.

We are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that establishes and reviews policies. Our directors are Community First members who are elected by the membership and serve without pay.

A common bond of concern for others is what led to the founding of Community First Credit Union and lies at the heart of our "Community Service/Corporate Contributions philosophy." Sponsorships, financial contributions, in-kind services and volunteerism give us the opportunity to impact and grow the quality of life for our members. We strive to live our mission by contributing to the economic health, social well being, and quality of life in all of the communities where our members live and work.

Natural flavor, pure and simple. It’s not just what we make, it’s everything we believe in. Our passion is creating great-tasting flavors that help you develop signature foods with unique appeal that enhance brand recognition. From hundreds of Condensed Natural Smokes™ and Cooking Method Flavors™ to custom development of proprietary flavors, we’re dedicated to providing savory flavor solutions that are natural, authentic and healthy. Our technical capabilities and state-of-the-art manufacturing expertise enables us to deliver products in formats suitable for your specific application and process.  


In 1956, Dr. Clifford Hollenbeck created and later patented the process of producing smoke flavoring by burning hardwood sawdust and capturing the flavorful wood smoke components in water. Soon, there was significant commercial interest in Condensed Natural Smoke™, and the Red Arrow company was born. The name was chosen in honor of the 32nd Red Arrow Infantry Brigade, made up of members from Wisconsin and Michigan.  

From the early 1960s through the 1990s, Red Arrow furthered its research and development and gained national and international recognition for its smoke and grill technologies. Under new ownership in the late 1990s, the company expanded its expertise, leading to the development of Cooking Method Flavors™ that emulate the tastes created from roasting, frying, sautéing and grilling.

Red Arrow continues its tradition of innovation and technology with revolutionary product development and flavor customization to meet the various needs of today’s manufacturers and end consumers.
