The Friends of the Braumart received a donation of $4,000 from the We Energies Foundation in support of their efforts to ‘bring back the Braumart.’ Their mission is to purchase and develop the historic Braumart Theatre into a center that embraces all arts and artists, provides cultural, educational and economic stimulus for the area, and provides a cultural and social gathering place for the community. “The We Energies Foundation contribution encourages a positive community development that will benefit the entire tri-county area for years to come,” noted Dr. Nelson Hassell, board member for the Friends of the Braumart. Shown here standing on front of the historic Braumart Theatre in Iron Mountain are, from left, Friends of the Braumart board members Hassell; Jinx Brew, Tim Haagensen, Audrey Smith, Barb Kramer, Duane Peck and John Estes.
