April 8, Solar Eclipse Event

On April 8, residents of central Texas have a direct view of the remarkable solar eclipse. The solar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime event, where the moon passes in front of the sun, creating a shadow.  

To enhance the viewing experience, we are pleased to provide Extraco-branded glasses, ensuring a safe and unobstructed observation of this mesmerizing cosmic display. Wear your Extraco-branded glasses, and let's collectively appreciate the magic of the solar eclipse!

In anticipation of heavy traffic and a potential rise in fraud attempts, our lobbies will remain closed throughout April 8th. However, our Downtown Temple location will be open, closing briefly from 12 - 2 p.m. Drive-thrus will continue to operate as usual.

To best prepare for the increase in visitors:

  • Complete all wires and any additional banking needs the week before the eclipse to avoid any possible delays.
  • Expect connectivity issues because of increased traffic on the cell phone network on the following platforms: Phone24 banking, call center, online banking access codes, ATMs, and Extra Bankers.
  • Act with caution as mass events can lead to increased fraud attempts.
  • Be sure to visit gas stations, grocery stores, etc. before the event.
