Did You Know…

August 17th, 2015

…the Brunswick Revitalization Committee was awarded a $50,000 grant by the American Water Charitable Foundation to complete the courtyard project in downtown Brunswick? This was in addition to a previous $5,000 grant that was awarded to the Brunswick Revitalization Committee for the landscaping project. It looks beautiful!

In addition, the Brunswick Fire Department has been awarded grants from the American Water Charitable Foundation for equipment for the last several years.

Missouri American Water, Brunswick also gave the Brunswick
Fire Department two self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBA).

Thank you Missouri American Water for all you do to make our community a wonderful place to live, work, and raise our families.

Arabia Steamboat Museum Presentation Huge Success

May 28th, 2014

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Arabia Steamboat Museum presentation Friday night. Owner, David Hawley, told the fascinating story of their family’s discovery, excavation, and recovery of many items of the lost steamboat. I highly recommend visiting their museum located in Kansas City.

An additional highlight of the evening was seeing the renovation progress of the future home of the Brunswick Area Heritage Museum located in the space above City Hall. The restored tin ceiling is beautiful. This space will be the perfect home for the many artifacts that tell the story of the Brunswick Area.

Donations are being accepted to make the museum handicap accessible. Contact Lynn Leimkuehler to find out how you can support this exciting project to preserve our wonderful heritage.
