Honet Pride Picnics a resounding success
Frazee October 13, 2023- 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, again, to support Frazee-Vergas Public School. This year we matched our donation from last year, which was a personal best. The donation, with the United Community Bank match, will be $10,000 and it will go directly towards Frazee-Vergas 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 Renollet.
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. 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 to bring the community together all summer long. Thus far to date, we have raised and donated over $90,000 to Frazee-Vergas schools because of the Hornet Pride Picnics. The meals run every Wednesday during the summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
