Hornet Pride Picnics a Huge Success
Frazee October 4, 2022- All summer, United Community Bank hosted Hornet Pride Picnics. The purpose
of these picnics is to raise money for Frazee Fine Arts and Athletic programs at Frazee-Vergas Public
School. The picnics this year were a resounding success. The community and surrounding areas
showed up in droves to support Frazee-Vergas Public School. This year we doubled our donation due
to the incredible support our community showed. The donation, with the United Community Bank
match, will be $10,000 and it will go directly towards Frazee Fine Arts and Athletics Programs.
“Frazee is a town where neighbors care for each other. Our neighbors supported us every Wednesday
this summer and without them and their support we wouldn’t be making this donation to Frazee-
Vergas Public School. All I can say is, ‘It’s a great day to be a Hornet!’ ” Frazee Branch Manager Ashley
United Community Bank would like to personally thank the communities of Frazee, Vergas, and the
surrounding areas for supporting the Hornet Pride Picnics all summer. We would like to invite the public
to join us on October 11th at Frazee-Vergas High School when Frazee Volleyball plays Detroit Lakes
and UCB will be presenting the $10,000 donation to Frazee-Vergas Public School.
The local groups and businesses that made the picnics possible in Frazee are:
Ketter’s Meat Market
Frazee Family Foods
All in All Convenience Store
Numerous Frazee Fine Arts and Athletics groups who cooked every week
The Hornet Pride Picnics started in 2007 as a way to bring the community together all summer long.
Thus far to date, we have raised and donated over $80,000 to Frazee-Vergas schools because of the
Hornet Pride Picnics. The meals run every Wednesday during the summer from Memorial Day to Labor
