Bremen Depot has new life

December 12, 2010

A local labor of love — and sometimes agony — has reached its completion.
After years of physical, emotional and financial effort, the Bremen Depot relocation and restoration project, spearheaded by Historic Bremen, is complete.
“We have finished it and we’re now moving stuff in,” Historic Bremen coordinator R.T. Henke said. “The plan is to make it a welcome center and a railroad history museum, and also a history center for Bremen.”
The ride to completion has been long and bumpy.

Holy Walk celebrates 30 years

December 12, 2010

BREMEN — Every December for the last 30 years the Bremen community gets together to recreate a miracle: the Holy Walk.
For an event to bring together over 200 volunteers, involving area churches of varying denominations for the last 30 years is also a miracle. This miracle is due in large part to the Huff family. Jim, his wife Loretta, son Max Huff and his wife Linda have lent their farm, time and leadership to this event every year. Each year people from all over the region and from other countries come to experience this unique event.

Foul weather can’t spoil lighting

November 30, 2010

BREMEN — Bitter cold temperatures and freezing rain didn’t stop people from coming out and kicking off the holiday season with the annual lighting of the main street in Bremen. 
Holiday classics were performed by the Horizon band. Girls and Boys Scouts helped sing and “Here comes Santa Claus”  was performed to welcome for the arrival of Old Saint Nick.
Jennifer Gonzales was this year’s coloring contest winner and had the honor of flipping the switch to light up the downtown area. The night finished up with a quick visit with Santa.

Shop with a Cop makes Christmas brighter

November 30, 2010

The annual Shop with a Cop program might be organized by the Plymouth Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge #195, but its benefits reach Bremen as well.
“There has been a misconception that this event was only for Plymouth children, so it’s been a little difficult in recent years getting Bremen to donate,” said Pattie Udstuen, volunteer and owner of Encore Consignment Shop. “We just want everyone to know it also helps Bremen children.”
Plymouth FOP #195 President Hurshel Hunter echoed that sentiment.

Holy Walk is a Bremen tradition

November 24, 2010

BREMEN — While live nativity scenes are quite common, the annual Holy Walk offers a unique dramatized vision of the birth of Jesus Christ.
This year’s 30th anniversary Holy Walk will be Dec. 3-4 on the farm of Jim and Loretta Huff, where it has taken place all but the first year.
“We always look forward to it,” Loretta Huff said of the event, which is free to the public. “It’s kind of our mission project and we just want to share our property. We don’t take the credit for it because many people from many different churches are involved.”
