Kennewick Welcomes Edward Jones Investments

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wa.,--Edward Jones Investments celebrates a grand opening for its new office in downtown Kennewick today.

Local dignitaries including Kennewick Police Chief, Ken Hohenberg, and Kennewick Mayor, Jim Beaver, joined in on the festivities. The national investment company will call 16 West Kennewick Avenue its future home. The office will be run by Financial Advisor Lori Dillon. Dozens of local businesses worked together in support of this event.

Even though today's celebration was about a new beginning, Dillon shifted the attention to something close to her heart..donations for the Safe Harbor Crisis Nursery.

"We wanted to invite the citizens of the area to come down and support a group like Safe Harbor..all they do is help children in crisis and in trauma," said Dillon.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was more than 100-years in the making. The building was built back in 1904. According to the Historic Downtown Kennewick Partnership, it is the oldest commercial facility still standing in Kennewick.
