Picnic raises funds for Rosemount marching band

The Merchants Bank Community Appreciation Picnic on July 26 during Rosemount Leprechaun Days raised $428.38 through a donation box set up to collect funds for the Rosemount High School marching band as it prepares for its appearance this fall in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Staff members of Merchants Bank delivered the check to the band on Friday. During the picnic, the bank served up 420 free lunches that included sandwiches, chips, cookies, water and tea.
