Welcome to Brainard, Nebraska

Thank you to EVERYONE for supporting the Fire Department Drive Through Pork Dinner and Brainard Car Show. It was a WONDERFUL two-day event!

The final event of the summer was a concert by the Mark Vyhlidal Trio held in the Brainard City Park.  The event was sponsored by the Brainard Community Club.
