Beatrice: A Fairy Tale Christmas Store Front/Window Display Contest Winners Announced!

Christmas is not only in the air this holiday season but its in the sights!

Main Street Beatrice hosted the third annual Downtown Store Front display contest this holiday season. The 2013 theme, A Fairy Tale Christmas, provided inspiration for many of the downtown merchants and came from the Beatrice Public Librarys theme and ongoing holiday display honoring the old world fairy tales that have shaped our culture.

This year, several businesses jumped into the holiday spirit and added a little color and lights to their store fronts. Those displays were recently viewed and judged by the Main Street Beatrice Design Committee. It is exciting to see so many downtown businesses get into the Christmas Spirit and do a little decorating said Carol Shuster, a member of the Main Street Beatrice Design Committee.

The top honors are:

Area Donors Apparently Giving Less

Its the season of giving and there are several area organizations in need.

Area donors are quite generous, several Jefferson County organization officials said, but costs continue to rise and the needs are greater than the donations satisfy. When funding doesnt equal expenses, business hours are cut, projects are left undone and programs suffer.

Officials with Fairburys Bonham Theatre Project, the Jefferson County Historical Society, the Fairbury Public Library and Blue Valley Community Action tell of how donations impact their organizations.

The Bonham

Since November 2012 the Bonham Theatre Project has raised about $143,000 of the more than $200,000 needed to remodel and reopen Fairburys movie theatre. After the Bonham Theatre closed last fall, a community organization was formed to purchase and upgrade the movie theater.

There will be several families that will be receiving much more than food this Christmas thanks to Diode Communications and Girl Scout Troop #20483.

During the month of December, Diode Communications staff had a diaper drive to benefit Blue Valley Community Action (BVCA). It all started when Danni Starck had read an article that told about low income mothers having to reuse disposable diapers simply in order to stretch their budget. She told the story at work and it was decided that Diode Communications could do a diaper drive to benefit the area.
