THE FAMILY PLACE IN HYRUM WELCOMES PUBLIC TO OPEN HOUSE Renovated Hyrum facility showcases building improvements and changes HYRUM, UT— The Family Place will host an open house celebrating Hyrum’s Norma Miller, The Family Place, on Thursday, November 12, 2015 from 3:00-6:00 p.m. with a program at 4:30 p.m. The open house will showcase the resources available to the south end of the Cache Valley community and provide a family-friendly event that includes a piñata, inflatables, snacks, races, and more. “Our goal is to welcome people, let them see the facility and educate them on the resources provided,” says Executive Director Esterlee Molyneux. “This building is the result of community, civic, business, private, non-profit and government coming together for a common goal…to build an easily accessible facility for families at the south end of the community to be edified, educated and uplifted.” The event will also honor Norma Miller, a friend and advocate of The Family Place, who passed away November 13, 2014. Norma loved children and families; her husband, Junior Miller, made a generous donation to The Family Place as a tribute to Norma and the charitable life she lived. Mark Bergeson, the lead volunteer contractor, will also be recognized for donating his professional services to the renovation that added an additional 2,300 square feet to the existing 1,300 square foot building.
