Bremer Bank Gives Back

Posted on July 24,2017

If you have been down to Thursday’s on First and 3rd this year, you know how great some of our vendors are, but this year we want to take the time to highlight a few of the organizations that help make this event possible. Throughout the rest of the summer we will be using our blog and social media accounts to introduce some of our fantastic partners.

Bremer Bank has truly been instrumental to Thursday’s on First & 3rd, not only do they provide a few lucky members of the crowd with a t-shirt, but each week they provide a local nonprofit with their tent space to help them promote their mission and vision to the community. That is truly what giving back is all about and we couldn’t be more grateful for the support of Bremer.
