This year, the Brookfield Chamber of Commerce held its first Easter Egg Hunt on April 4 at Ehlert Park. We would like to thank all of the families of Brookfield and the surrounding communities for helping to make the hunt a success. 

We as a chamber strive to bring new events and opportunities to the village, but it also takes the willing participation of our residents and business owners to make what we do worthwhile.

We had a great turnout Saturday with dozens of families coming out with the hopes of leaving with a basket full of candy. Since this was our first year doing this event, there is a lot of room for improvement. 

However, without the support of our Gold Sponsors — Advanced Auto, Betty’s Flowers, Edward Jones Investments, Hitzeman Funeral Home, SPARC Chiropractic, Montessori Children’s Community — and our Silver Sponsors  — Ms. Clara’s Mini Musicians, Non-Stop Music Fest and St. Paul Lutheran Church — we were able to make sure that no child left empty handed.

So again, thank you Brookfield, from your Chamber of Commerce.
