The Pearl - "a gem waiting to be discovered"

Brodhead is home to a unique waterway, the Mill Race, which flows out of the Sugar River and eventually rejoins it, creating not only great possibilities for outdoor activities, but also an islandKayaks on the race between the River and the Race. The City and many other groups, civic organizations, and private citizens are currently involved in a major project to develop and beautify this area for the enjoyment of our residents as well as the visitors that the project is sure to attract.  Everyone can help!  Everyone is invited to "Come on Board!" 

To volunteer time, materials, equipment, or funding, contact Dick Benesh, Project Administrator, at 608-558-0815.

4th Annual Gala Fundraiser was a great success!

Gala 2015A fantastic evening of dinner and dancing, a live  auction, drawings, contests, and more was enjoyed by all!  Music was provided by the Dang-Its Quartet, a fantastic group that appeared in one of last summer's Twilight in the Park concerts in Brodhead but is best known from the Madison Area Music Awards.

Last year's first Gala netted over $15,000, and the goal this year's event may have surpassed that, thanks to donations of auction items and other contributions!  Thanks to all in our great community who came out to support this great cause while enjoying a wonderful evening! Special thanks to Nancy Sutherland, who chaired and organized the event as well as working countless hours (along with several helpers) to create the festive atmosphere that greeted the attendees!  Well done!
