Bremen Public Library rich history displayed

August 22, 2011

The Town of Bremen has a rich history, remembered and acknowledged by locals that meet regularly to discuss such things. Attendees to the area historians’ meeting July 27 learned that the library has a past that is just as interesting as the town’s itself.
The Bremen Public Library Children’s Librarian Sandy Krost and BPL Library Director Marsha Patterson brought some of the past into the present, much of which they recalled from their tenure as employees there. Krost has been with the library for 25 years and Patterson for 34.

The big 14U game between the Bremen Knock-outs and the Nappanee Storm was played to celebrate the lives of those who have beat cancer, in remembrance of others who lost their battle against the disease, and as a fundraiser to help save lives in the future.

the service officer for community

The Bremen Police Department will be adding another law enforcement staff member in the fall. Patrolman Trent Stouder has been on the local force for nine years and will be the one acquiring the new partner, a trained K9 of his choosing.

August 9, 2011

Deidre Coffey’s introduction into the world of medicine came at the age of 15 when she took a job at Miller’s Merry Manor in her hometown of Culver.
“My first job was at the Swirly Top Ice Cream until it burned down,” she said. “It was easy for a high school kid to get a part time job from 4 to 8 (p.m.) at Miller’s.”
The time she spent there left an impression on her that she carries with her today as a Nurse Practitioner for the last few months at Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center’s Bremen Family Medicine.
