BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - The Homestead National Monument of America is hosting a naturalization ceremony for new United States citizens.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin on Friday at 2 p.m. in the Education Center’s Courtyard.

This is the first of two naturalization ceremonies to take place at the monument near Beatrice. Last year, more than 100 people from more than 60 countries became new citizens at Homestead.

Superintendent Mark Engler says the ceremonies reflect the basic homesteading principle of welcoming new citizens to build the country.

The Homestead National Monument of America is a unit of the National Park Service.
