Happy (early) Fourth of July -
Our annual celebration will look different this year but it is sure to be just as fun! We hope to see all New Berlin residents in the Reverse Parade scheduled for 1:00 PM on July 4th. Don't forget about all of our virtual challenges as well - the Great American Bake Off is certain to awaken your sweet tooth. Be sure to listen for church bells in the evening of July 4th and take a moment to remember what we're really celebrating on Independence Day. If you see Fire Chief Lloyd Bertram out and about wish him farewell, he is retiring at the beginning of July. The Partisan Primary is coming up on August 11th, you still have plenty of time to request an absentee ballot.
