RICHLAND, WA - The new Hanford REACH Interpretive Center is celebrating its grand opening. Saturday they kicked things off with a dedication ceremony and gala.

In addition to getting a good look at the inside of the new building, guests enjoyed musical performances from local groups including ballet, singers and a symphony orchestra. A DJ helped the party go into the night when they opened the patio up for dancing.

The REACH Center will host displays and exhibits that teach us about our ecology and Hanford’s history, but they also hope to play host to some great art as well.

"Having great entertainment that showcases our building and our stories was really important. It's going to be a great time and it's kind of a last big sigh of the opening that is the REACH. Now, as of Tuesday the 7th we're just going to be open. We're just going to be here as part of the community," explained Stephanie Button from the center.

Already with a soft opening on the 4th and Saturday, the center has seen its fair share of visitors. When we called Friday they said they had a steady stream of guests.

Friday night was a chance to celebrate the years of work they have put into the project as well as the years of being part of the community to come.
