The People’s Federal Credit Union was federally chartered on January 12, 1953 as the Amarillo Pantex Credit Union. The first branch was at the Pantex plant, and it wasn’t until 1973 that TPFCU opened its first branch in Amarillo. From there we’ve grown to almost 10,000 members and five branches in Amarillo, Canyon and Childress.
La Semana Santa or Holy Week (last week of Lent and the week before Easter) is another prominent holiday within the Hispanic community. During this week there can be daily processions or walks, sometimes with participants carrying wooden crosses, and often a full Passion Play which re-enacts the suffering Jesus went through before his death.
