STORY: A Personal Impact

Recently an "incident" took place here in New Bremen. My son had crossed SR274 in what he believed to be a safe manner. A car was approximately 1/3 of a mile away (at the high school).  After crossing, the car almost hit him. He said he was pretty scared. He commented that a police car in the Pioneer Professional Center pulled out with its lights on. At first he thought he did something wrong (by crossing), but the police car went after the car.

NBHS Student Recognized

In the fall of 2016, Mayor Pape sought an effort to provide residents with information pertaining to public improvements, village projects, added features at our parks, or upcoming events in the Community, the village partnered with New Bremen Schools to produce a community newsletter. This partnership was formed to meet the needs of the community, as well as allowing for an opportunity to incorporate the project into curriculum.
