Broken Bow Named Rural Community of the Year by Midwest Messenger

BROKEN BOW–In a November 2018 issue of the Midwest Messenger, Broken Bow was named as one of Nebraska’s Rural Communities of the Year due to its dedication to rural life and agriculture.

During the Nebraska Press Women’s¬†annual conference and award program–held in Broken Bow during the month of April–the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce accepted the award.

The Midwest Messenger has been bringing farmers together for the last 50 years and continues to tell the stories of rural life. Three communities are selected each year that have invested in local assets, residents, businesses, and general support of agriculture.

Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce Deb Kennedy said it was an honor to be named one of the rural communities of the year.

“We were very pleased to accept that award on behalf of Broken Bow. It’s just a really nice honor and it was really fun to sit down with Nebraska Press Women and see all of their successes,” Kennedy said.
