BEATRICE – Thursday night in downtown Beatrice was the annual Community Connection event…a chance for people to meet with their local first-responders, get a free hot dog and enjoy the evening.

Beatrice Police and Beatrice Fire and Rescue members hold the event in September along Fifth Street downtown, to promote community relations.

Chief of Police Bruce Lang says it also gives citizens a chance to voluntarily help police, fire and rescue…through information.
