Community Resources Questionnaire

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;

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!

Dia del Nino childrens day

Dia Del Nino/Children’s Day

Better Brodhead partnered with the Multicultural Outreach Program to organize the First Children’s Day Celebration in Green County. Children were the focus of the day! We celebrated with a parade, Beloit Even Start Dancers, face painting, photo booth, kindness rocks, flag making and pinatas. Hopefully this is the first of many more multicultural events in our community!

Hidden In Plain Sight Fire/EMS

On May 15th, 2019 Better Brodhead and Brodhead Police Department collaborated on a Hidden In Plain Sight training for Brodhead Fire and Brodhead Area EMS personnel. This training highlighted the dangers of the “one pot method” of meth production. Instead of demonstrating a room we set up a “rolling” meth lab in the back of a vehicle. We hope to continue to provide this training in the future.
