Say Hi to Petey the Pelican


Petey's the mascot of Pelican State Credit Union, and if you ever see us out in your community, you just might see him too!

You can find Petey at our Free Kids Bike Races, on the Pelican State CU float at local parades, making special guest appearances at school events, and more! It doesn't matter if you're 1 or 101, Petey's always more than happy see you (and maybe dance around a bit).
Did we mention that he's the star of his own coloring book, The Adventures of Petey the Pelican? It's dedicated to financial wellness for Louisiana's brightest young minds and tells a story about his hard work saving up for a big purchase! He loves to share his story with any kid who wants to read it.
The next time you see him, stop by and say hi!
