The Otto Bremer Foundation, majority owner of Bremer Bank, awarded $35,000 to the city of Millerville. The funds will be used to support the renovations to the playground for the Millerville Community Club.

"The Otto Bremer Foundation and Bremer Bank are committed to building healthy communities in Millerville," said John Rolf, president of Bremer Bank in Brandon. "It's gratifying that our owner and partner, the Otto Bremer Foundation, has offered its backing to this great organization."

The Millerville Community Club was formed in March 2011. Since then, it has worked on a project to improve the city park. Last year a spaghetti fundraiser was held, a Halloween party for the kids and Christmas in Millerville Craft Show in November.

The group is raising funds for new playground equipment, bathrooms and concession stand.

Bremer Financial Corporation is a privately-held, $8 billion regional financial services company jointly owned by its employees and the Otto Bremer Foundation.

Created in 1944, the Otto Bremer Foundation assists people in achieving full economic, civic and social participation in and for the betterment of their communities.
