Brodhead Chamber members and their guests assembled on the icy evening of Monday, January 16, at Billy’s Sand Trap for their annual banquet and elections.  A social hour preceded the banquet meal, which began at 6:30 with a welcome from President Michele Benesh and invocation by Julio Rodriguez.

Following the meal, attendees were treated to the singing of Brodhead fourth-grader Josie Picard, who has become known across the state and region for her a cappella singing of the National Anthem at events such as Packers Family Fun Day at Lambeau Field, Milwaukee Bucks and Brewers games, and many UW sporting events.  Following her singing, she was presented with a stuffed hippo and a certificate of appreciation from the Chamber for representing the community so well.
