The City of Hermiston received notice that it will receive $2 Million to design and construct a new Senior Center.  This is particularly good news for the Hermiston seniors since their existing building is scheduled to be permanently closed at the end of 2015 as part of the Umatilla Fairgrounds relocation to the Eastern Oregon Trade and Event Center.  The current center “has been operating at the fairgrounds here for decades…” says Irene Miller, President of the Senior Center Board. “… we are so delighted to get the funding.”
