Thank you Rausch family and also the Bremen Junior Woman’s Club for their continued community service.
Please help support them as they raise funds for a new playground for the kids!

So 3 1/2 years later there is a lot that has been cleared by the Bremen Junior Woman's Club and other volunteers - playground equipment purchased and ready to be put in the ground. The city of Bremen approached the club asking for an oversight committee at the end of the year. A sign of trouble. So after 3 years where the city did absolutely nothing to help, decide they don't want the Woman's Club to use the lot that had already been given them. Splosh money was used to create the sidewalk that now is around a vacant lot. At last report the Bremen Junior Woman's Club had raised over $100,000 for this all-abilities playground. Phase two was to be a walking trail. Now the city doesn't want to maintain the playground and wants to move it to the recreation fields. I guess the important thing is that Bremen gets new playground equipment. But it is disheartening to those who donated time and money for a vision of a wooded playground.

I will never trust what the city says again. At least while the people in charge; mayor, city hall, and the recreation people that are still in office. We need to clean house and get some people in office that are for the people and children of Bremen.
