Peoples Bank would like to thank all of the young men and women with the Nazareth FFA for stepping up and helping with the fire victims of the Perryton/Lipscomb Fire. We are proud to support the farmers/ranchers that have lost so much in the fires, and are proud of all of the people in the Texas Panhandle for coming together and helping out.
