Community Resource Committee

Better Brodhead is part of a community committee that is attempting to map out all the associations within Brodhead and the surrounding area. An association is defined as a group of people volunteering their time for a specific purpose or a group of people who get together to play cards or quilt. Associations are an untapped resource within all communities and our hope is that we can connect community members with associations as well as resources that are available but aren’t utilized as they could be.

Our committee is comprised of members of the Brodhead School District, Brodhead Memorial Public Library and Better Brodhead. We have been working closely with community builder John McKnight, for more information on John check out his website; https://resources.depaul.edu/abcd-institute/faculty/Pages/john-mcknight.aspx

Vape Cart & Meth Display

Better Brodhead was invited to have a display during the November Parent Teacher conferences at Brodhead Middle School. Around 35 parents and students stopped by our display. The vape cart displays the dangers of the chemicals in a vape. The meth display is meant to educate the community on the dangers of the “one-pot method” of manufacturing meth amphetamines. Thank you Brodhead Middle School for your continued support and partnership!

Red Ribbon Week 2019

Red Ribbon Week at Albrecht Elementary school was a huge success. We are proud to continue this partnership and bring a week of substance use and bullying prevention to our elementary students. A big thank you also goes out to Brodhead Y2Y, Brodhead Police Department and Green County Sheriff’s Office for participating in the week of events!
