At Minnesota National Bank, we pride ourselves on getting to know each and every one of our customers. You’ll never feel like a stranger when you walk into Minnesota National Bank. We feel that building a strong relationship with the community is of utmost importance. To help get our local communities into the holiday spirit we participate in a number of local events.
Last month, Minnesota National Bank participated in the Long Prairie Kick off Parade. We enjoyed seeing everyone’s smiling faces as we drove by in a pick-up truck with a giant snowman attached!
During December we always have holiday decorations up. At our Pelican Rapids location, we even have a lit tree outside! If you’re in the neighborhood this holiday season, be sure to stop by our locations and check them out!
Although parades and holiday décor both get people into the holiday spirit, we believe giving back to the community is even more important. Sauk Centre’s “Sharing Tree” and Long Prairie’s “Caring Tree” have lists of gifts that people can buy for local families in need. This is just a small way that we get the community together to help those in need. Our Sauk Centre location also participated in Christmas for Seniors through Alternative Senior Care. This program allows people to donate to seniors who might not have loved ones around during the holiday season.
To thank all of our customers during the holiday season, each location puts on a holiday open house. Our open houses include cookies, hot apple cider, and coffee! This year the Pelican Rapids location had Santa come and visit. Long Prairie’s Open House scheduled for Friday, will have sleigh rides with Santa’s reindeer! And if you want to win some door prizes, make sure you stop by Sauk Centre’s Open House!
It’s our privilege to give back to our community, especially since so many people support our business every day. Our strong communities are what keep us going and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of them! We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season.
At Minnesota National Bank, nothing is more important to us than giving back to the community. That’s why this month we are going to be giving away $100 dollars to one lucky charity. But we need your help! Each week in November we have been posting a photo of six Minnesota National Bank’s employees’ mustaches. Each week you can vote for your favorite mustache by commenting on that post. Whoever gets the most votes at the end of November will win and their selected charity will receive $100 from Minnesota National Bank!
Here is the list of charities:
Mike = St. Paul Church, Sauk Centre Elevator Fund
Allan= Prostate Cancer Foundation
Rick= Camphill Village of Minnesota
Ryan= Wounded Warrior Project
Eric= Pelican Rapids Food Shelf
Donald= Holy Family School Sauk Centre
So what are you waiting for? Vote for your favorite charity/mustache here.
One bank. Three towns. Minnesota National Bank knows how to do community.
Summer is the ultimate season for outdoor activities and events. There is so much to do and people should be taking full advantage of the beautiful weather and community events.
All three towns, Sauk Centre, Pelican Rapids, and Long Prairie host citywide festivals/fairs at some point in the summer!
Sauk Centre hosts its 43rd Annual Sinclair Lewis Days on July 14-21 this summer. Each day of the fair has something special planned. Some examples of what you’d find include music, fireworks, parades, ice cream socials, craft fairs, street dances, car shows, and a River Bats water ski show! This isn’t even half. There are tons of activities for all ages.
Pelican Rapids hosts its Pelican Fest for two days this summer, July 12th and 13th. It has formerly been called “Turkey Days”. This event is also great for all ages, with activities such as a parade, turkey BBQ, beer garden, helicopter ride, ice cream social, and of course, a turkey race.
Last but not least, Long Prairie will host the Todd City Fair on August 14th-18th. Join in the fun! There will be food stands, carnival rides, animals, bike shows, games, music, and more.
All three fairs are more than one day long, so there is no excuse to miss, you can bet our staff will be in attendance!
