BEATRICE – The month of May is a popular one for observances. Mayoral proclamations have been issued in Beatrice designating May as Preservation Month, General Aviation Appreciation Month and Building Safety Month.
Main Street Beatrice Executive Director Michael Sothan says part of Preservation Month is this Sunday’s annual Mother’s Day tour of historic downtown landmarks, starting at two p.m.
That includes an inside tour at some of the recently renovated buildings or those undergoing refurbishing.

Seventeen downtown projects have taken advantage of the grant program, helping to defray some of the cost of building renovation.
Other observances this month include May 6th through the 12th, as Drinking Water Week and Municipal Clerk’s Week.
