    Tampico-Festival-2019
    The Tampico community has hosted a summer weekend festival for many years and this year is re-introducing the event with a new name – “Tampico Festival 2019”. Tampico is a close neighbor to Prophetstown, one of the three communities in our consolidated school district, and home to many FNB customers, so the Bank was happy to help out with sponsorship of $500 for the event! The picture above is some of FNB’s Prophetstown staff and was featured on the Tampico Festival Facebook page with a thank you post.
