RICHLAND, Wash.-- A new event center had its grand opening in richland Tuesday.  It's part of Einan's Funeral Home, but it's not just for funerals.

The new reception center off the Bypass Highway is a 6,000 square foot room for banquets, retirement parties, and other celebrations.  General Manager Michael Turner explains, "We want to celebrate anything that creates memories, that encourages families to come together.  We very much want to be a part of the community to serve all families whatever the need might be."

Turner says more than 130 people can fit in the main room.  It also has a kitchen and conference room.

He says they already have a few weddings and other events planned for this summer.  A public open house is scheduled for May.
