On behalf of the Town of Bruderheim, I warmly welcome you to the Home of the Bruderheim Meteorite!

We would love for you to discover Bruderheim, a warm and friendly community nestled within country farmland and Alberta's Industrial Heartland. Our citizens and Town Council work together to support our quality of life, which we believe is unsurpassed in the region. We are proud to share our rich history, while also looking to the future, as we build off the recent successes in ensuring the sustainability of our great community.

In regards to sustainability, we cannot go without mentioning that our community is growing, evident by the Alberta Government's recent approval of our annexation request. This will be a key driver of our Town's sustainability for the bright future we envision. We also have to give mention to our very unique program, Tax Free for Three, which is helping to fuel our Town's growth going forward.

We are truly grateful to work collaboratively with all municipalities in our region and receive such fantastic support from industry and the businesses of our community. Town Council recognizes how important business and partnerships are. We are very fortunate to have close working relationships with both Lamont County and Strathcona County, and the many strategic initiatives which result, such as our contract with Strathcona County for CAO services. 

We have so many great examples of collaboration with our various partners, from the arena project—now proudly known as the Karol Maschmeyer Arena—to fundraising for a new community park, slated for the first phase of construction in summer of 2018. We are excited to boast our new Bruderheim Pharmacy, which opened in 2017. Our Town is partnering with many other organizations to enhance residents' choices for health care in the Community Clinic in the new Pharmacy building. We also are proud to be home to the ultra-modern Suite 6 Bruderheim Hotel, an innovative facility with a beautiful and environmentally-conscious design that utilizes sea cans. This hotel, a one-of-a-kind in Canada, and many other examples, showcase perfectly our Town's goal to work collectively with partners in our drive to be sustainable for the future.

Our small-town spirit is evident everywhere you look, and there is always something going on here. For example, the Aikido program is a unique opportunity for adults and children that runs three times a week. An archery program sponsored by Lamont and Fort Saskatchewan Fish & Game clubs and hosted by the Ag Society at Walker School, offers the sport to people of all ages. The Bruderheim Ag Society also hosts the very popular Bruderheim Heartland Ag Days in August—a fantastic weekend of many activities hilighted by chariot and chuck wagon racing. Bruderheim Minor Sports Association leads hockey and soccer for our youth, and monthly events, such as the Seniors Club’s community breakfasts and potluck dinners, as well as the Lions Club’s bingo nights, keep our residents engaged.

I truly believe that volunteers are the lifeblood of our town, and we are fortunate that so many dedicated folks have stepped forward to serve in Bruderheim. For example, Communities in Bloom volunteers tirelessly strive to make our town more beautiful every year—and it’s exemplified by the recent 5 Blooms award at CIB Nationals. Bruderheim would not be what it is without our great friends and neighbours.

What I've mentioned here are but a few of the things going on in our town. Town Council is pursuing many initiatives with our wonderful team at the Town Office, led by our CAO, Patty Podoborozny.

 

Please do come out and experience life in Bruderheim—we would be happy to see you here!


With Warmest Regards,

Mayor Karl Hauch
