Hermantown Hockey
We recently supported the Hermantown Hockey PeeWee B Tournament. The tournament was a success and Hermantown B Gold took third place and Hermantown B Blue came in fourth out of eight teams. Great job boys! We’re proud to be able to support such a great group!

University of MN Duluth Engineering Scholarship
We recently supported the UMD Engineering Scholarship fund which created a $1000 scholarship for an engineering student. A big congrats goes out to UMD Engineering student, Abigail Croal! Abigail, who is originally from Medina, MN, was chosen as the 2017-18 United Piping Scholar — earning herself a scholarship to help further her studies in mechanical engineering. At UPI, we’re so proud to be able to help advance the education and careers of talented, hard-working individuals like Abigail. Already very accomplished, we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for her as she continues to excel in the field of engineering.

Lake Superior Ice Festival
UPI again partnered with Enbridge in 2018 to sponsor the Lake Superior Ice Festival in Superior, WI. The event is a free and family-friendly community event which offers activities from pond hockey to enjoying a drink at an ice bar. UPI also took on the feat, for the second year in a row, of building a 250’ sledding hill for kids and adults alike to enjoy. We also had several volunteers that helped throughout the event with planning, snow hill construction, marketing, and hill monitoring! Nice work to all for helping a fun community event thrive.
