The Family Place is hosting an open house in Hyrum on Thursday, November 12 to showcase the resources available to the south end of Cache Valley. Executive Director Esterlee Molyneaux says it will be a family-friendly event that will include a pinata, inflatables, snacks, races and more.
Molyneaux says the goal is to welcome people to the new Hyrum facility which is a result of community, civic, business, private, non-profit and government coming together for a common goal: to provide an easily accessible place for families where they can be edified, educated and uplifted.
Molyneaux says the event has another important goal and that is to honor the life of the late Norma Miller, a friend and advocate of The Family Place who passed away on November 13, 2014.
“The Miller family has attended our events out in Hyrum since we originally purchased the building,” Molyxeaux says. “One thing we know about Norma is that her family was the center of her life.
“A way to honor her legacy to her family and the contributions they have made to the community, this building being named after her is significant and so meaningful.”
Molyneaux says Mark Bergeson, the lead volunteer contractor, will also be recognized for donating his professional services to the renovation which added 2,300 square feet.
The celebration is scheduled for Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. with the program starting at 4:30.
