    President's Message: April 2022

    By Wasatch Peaks on Apr 1, 2022 8:00:00 AM

    Spring is such a great time of year, especially here in Utah. I think our long, cold winters help us appreciate springtime a little more than those in warmer climates. As the days get longer, and warmer, I hope you are all energized for getting back outdoors. We live in such a great part of the country with mountains, lakes, rivers, and deserts all within a day’s drive. Utah has more national parks (five) than any other state besides California and Alaska. We really do live in a pretty, great State.

    Spring is also a time for renewal. Spring is a great time to envision endless possibilities, to let go of the old and make room for the new. This can apply to the traditional spring cleaning, but we can also let go of old fears, disappointments, and anger. We’ve come through two incredibly difficult years, with the pandemic, and I think we could all use a little renewal. Many of us have put off travel and other activities these past few years. Spring is the perfect time to travel or recreate. Spring is also a great time to start a new activity… like gardening. Working in the dirt boosts our mood by exposing us to sunlight and the benefits of vitamin D. It also lowers stress hormones and decreases the risk of dementia. Gardening is also a great form of aerobic exercise and helps work muscles and increase strength, stamina, and flexibility.

    Here at Wasatch Peaks, we are committed to helping our members. We offer lending products to help members get out an enjoy the sunshine, with loans for ATVs, RVs, boats, and motorcycles. We have low-rate home equity loans, which can be used to improve your home, buy a vacation property, or take that trip you’ve been putting off. We provide investment and insurance services, along with financial and retirement planning. Our commercial department provides local businesses with account services and loan products you may think only come from much larger institutions. Whatever your financial goals are, remember “Wasatch Peaks Will Be Here for You!”
