A few years ago, village officials decided to discontinue the publication of a quarterly newsletter. Since that time, we have felt that residents are no longer getting needed information pertaining to public improvements, village projects, added features at our parks, or upcoming events in the community.

During recent discussions with high school superintendent Dr. Andrea Townsend, we learned New Bremen Schools had received funding from New Bremen/New Knoxville Rotary Club.  This funding will enable students to do news reporting activities.  With the need for a community newsletter and the necessary equipment now available for students, the staff graciously agreed to implement the idea.  This partnership will meet the needs of the community, as well as allowing for an opportunity to incorporate the project into curriculum.

The (upcoming) edition is the initial launch. With coordinated efforts from the village office we hope to provide an informative newsletter about our entire community. 

As Mayor I am excited about the first issue.  I look forward to the future growth of the newsletter as we receive feedback from the public.  Public input will help us improve each issue.  I also want to thank Dr. Townsend and her staff and all village personnel who made this possible.  I hope you enjoy the first and subsequent issues.

Sincerely,

Mayor Jeff Pape
