What: Hanford History Partnership announcement

When: 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Where: WSU Tri-Cities, Consolidated Information Center, Art Center (room 102), 2770 Crimson Way, Richland

The Tri-Cities heritage is uniquely linked with the history of the Hanford site, going back to 1907 — well before the Manhattan Project. A team of 11 agencies has formed a collaborative partnership to capture, compile, and document these Hanford stories before they are lost to time.

Please join the College of Arts and Sciences at Washington State University Tri-Cities and its 10 partners as they announce this special history project and how the public’s help is needed to make sure the legacy endures.

The news conference is at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 5, at WSU Tri-Cities, in the Art Center (inside the Consolidated Information Center), 2770 Crimson Way, Richland.

Directions: Drive north on George Washington Way, pass Hanford High, turn right at the stoplight onto University Drive, turn right on Crimson Way, turn left into the CIC parking lot. Once inside the main entrance, the Art Center is the first room on the left.
