…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

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

Blessings of Living in a Small Town

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

There are many benefits to living in a small town and the evidence filled the downtown area today with a non-stop flurry of activity by Brunswick RII students, donning neon orange T-shirts. A host of community volunteers worked alongside the students and teachers to beautify the downtown area. The windows sparkle and the streets have been swept clean. A great big thank you to the school administration, staff, and students for jumping into this project with such enthusiasm. What a blessing to see the community come together on this project. Everyone involved did a fantastic job! Thank You!
