Becker Autos Camper Show & Open House

Becker Autos & Trailers will be hosting a Camper Show and Open House this weekend, April 1st & 2nd 9A-7P and April 3rd 1P-5P.

Becker Autos & Trailers would like to extend a special invitation to Beloit Chamber and Solomon Valley Economic Development members for a grand opening of our new additions at 9:30A on Friday, April 1st.

Many changes have been made over the last 7.5 years in Beloit, and we would like to welcome all of you out to check out all of the new improvements.  Over the years changes have been made to better assist customers: the addition of more offices and more open waiting area, mechanic shop with extra lifts, and a new building for trailer repair.  These changes have been made to maintain the inventory which now specializes in not only quality like new vehicles, but new and used trailers and campers.

We couldn’t have made these improvements without the assistance of our local businesses!  Please, come check out what we have to offer.  Thank you for your past and continued support.



Drive 4 UR School at Beloit Auto & Truck Plaza

On Sat. April 2nd from 9am to 1pm, Drive 4 UR School fundraiser will be taking place at Beloit Auto & Truck Plaza.  No sales pressure.  For every test drive, (one per household address) $20.00 will be donated to the local schools.  The goal is 300 test drives for a total of $6000.  With the local schools dealing with budget cuts at the state level, it couldn’t be more important to donate 10 minutes of your time to raise $20.00.  Beloit Auto & Truck Plaza will allow participants to come in anytime during the week to take a test drive if you are unable to make it on Saturday April 2nd.  Get the word out!

Water Surveys

The City of Beloit will be sending out surveys to the residents of Beloit and Rural Water District #1.  They are asking all residents who benefit from the city’s water services to complete and return the survey.  Results from this survey will be used to apply for a Community Development Block Grant for water quality improvements being offered by the Kansas Dept. of Commerce.   The completion and return of this survey is very important, the results may qualify our community for more block grants in the future.
