LINCOLN, Nebraska -- Cora Berry, wife of McCook mayor Dennis Berry, was one of the select tour guides the weekend of Aug. 4-5, for the open house at the Nebraska Governor's mansion and gardens.
At the invitation of Gov. Dave Heineman's wife, Sally Ganem, Berry has served on the mansion renovation committee. The renovations began when Sen. Ben Nelson served as the state's governor.
Several former first ladies of Nebraska, prominent decorators and landscapers also serve on the committee.
The unpaid committee, in addition to making renovation recommendations, also has been involved in raising private funds for the renovations.
