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
