Savage, Minn.- August 21, 2012 - Associated Bank, part of Associated Banc-Corp (NASDAQ: ASBC), will celebrate its one year anniversary at the Savage, Minn. branch located at 7533 Egan Drive on Aug. 31 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Associated will host a celebration commemorating the bank's appreciation for its customers and community. The celebration will consist of a tailgate party with food and beverages as well as chair massages at no cost. Customers and non-customers are welcome to attend the event.

"Last August, Associated relocated its Savage branch to provide a more convenient location for customers and serve the expanded Savage community through its centralized retail location," said Tina Davis, senior branch manager, Associated Bank. "Our goal was to create a better banking experience through a more revitalized layout and create a strong sense of community by connecting neighboring areas such as Eden Prairie, Shakopee and Prior Lake."

For the past several years, Associated has supported numerous local Savage community events through sponsorships and in-kind support, including Dan Patch Days, Winterfest and Fall Community Fest.

"Our colleagues have enjoyed participating in various community events and take great pride in being part of the growth and development of this community," said Davis. "Associated's local leadership and colleagues have been providing quality service to their hometown-friends and neighbors-and I want to thank them for their commitment. At the core of our pride and appreciation, is the Savage community-a community we are proud to be a part of."
