On behalf of the Town of Bruderheim, I warmly welcome you to the Home of the Bruderheim Meteorite!
Our town is excited to boast the new, ultra-modern Suite 6 Bruderheim Hotel, an innovative facility with a beautiful and environmentally-conscious design utilizing Sea Cans! This hotel—a one-of-a-kind in Canada—showcases perfectly our town's long-term goal to work collectively with our partners in our drive to be sustainable for the future. We have so many great examples of collaboration with our partners—from the arena project, now proudly known as the Karol Maschmeyer Arena, to fundraising for a new skateboard park. There is a lot going on in our small town!
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.
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. 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 the Nationals!
Bruderheim would not be what it is without our great friends and neighbours. 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, evidenced by many strategic initiatives, such as our contract with Strathcona County for CAO services.
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 in 2017!
With Warmest Regards,
Mayor Karl Hauch
