Beatrice–Keep Beatrice Beautiful has been awarded a 10-thousand dollar grant as part of the 2018 Keep America Beautiful/Lowe’s Community Partners Grant program. The Keep Beatrice Beautiful grant provided the funding to construct a cement pad and a A-D-A shelter at Hannibal Park.
Linda Grell of Keep Beatrice Beautiful said she visited with Mark Pethoud, Director of Public Properties, about the grant and the two decided there was a need for another shelter at Hannibal park…
“be excited to use this” :12
The Beatrice High School Construction class is helping to construct the shelter. Instructor Jim West says there are eleven students consisting of sophomores, juniors and seniors who have spent about 20 hours constructing the new addition. West estimates the project should be completed in about a week or two.
Grell says it is a great experience for the students…
“labor too” :07
The 30 by 30 foot shelter is located in the center area of the ball complex and will include six recycled picnic tables.
