Favorite Fall Activities

With it’s brilliantly colored leaves, crisp air and overflowing apple orchards, Fall is favorite season in Minnesota!

Here at Village Bank, our community loves everything the season has to offer, and a we thought we’d share a snapshot of how a few of our Villagers make the most of it. 


Fall Act - Sandy

Sandy, Retail Specialist/Teller Supervisor, East Bethel - Villager since 2014 

For Sandy, Fall simply wouldn’t be the same without visits to local pumpkin patches and corn mazes with her grandchildren. It’s a family tradition she looks forward to all year long. Pictured here, Ava (9), Daniel (8) and Hope (4) love it just as much!

Renee, VP of Human Resources, Ramsey - Villager since 2015

Renee says Fall is one her favorite times of the year! She loves the cooler weather and getting outside as much as possible to go hiking, biking, and visiting apple orchards. Renee also loves fall camping and enjoying a crackling bonfire.
 Fall Act - Liz

Liz, Private Banking Officer, Blaine - Villager since 2017

Liz and her husband Chad love to take in the fun Fall activities with their two sons, Brock and Brody. From pumpkin patches to corn mazes and hayrides, they love to get outside, take in the fall colors and enjoy the crisp air!
 Fall Act - Mel

Mel, Loan Administrator, St. Francis - Villager since 2015

Mel loves spending time apple picking with her kids in the fall! She says it’s the perfect opportunity to appreciate the beautiful trees as they turn color and to take home bags full of delicious apples. Luce Line Orchard in Watertown is a family favorite! She’s pictured here with the two youngest of her five children, Jasmyn (15) and Jaxon (12) at the orchard.
 Fall Act - Marla

Marla, Administrative and Marketing Assistant, East Bethel - Villager since 2018

Marla and her family grow their very own pumpkin patch in their backyard! This year they’re harvesting pumpkins and gourds to cook with and to decorate their house. Their adorable 10-month-old son Soren is the perfect model for showing it all off. Marla says her family loves being outside in the fall, soaking up the beautiful colors, picking apples, duck hunting and enjoying long walks.
 Fall Act - Jenny

Jenny, Internal Auditor/Compliance Officer, St. Francis - Villager since 1999

Jenny says one of her family’s favorite Fall activities is enjoying Grandpa’s annual apple orchard harvest. He keeps a small, private orchard that’s a treasure trove of apples for family and close friends. In this photo, Jenny’s 16-month-old son Griffin tasted his first apple and said “yum, yum, yum” as he chewed it. It looks like this is one family tradition that will continue for many years to come!
