   A Great Place To Be From & Live!

 

The Tri-Cities is a metropolitan area in the southeast corner of Washington, consisting of Benton and Franklin counties. Three neighboring cities are the principal cities for the metropolitan area: Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland. A fourth neighboring city, West Richland, is generally included as part of the Tri-City area and region. Pasco is the seat of Franklin County, while the other cities are located in Benton County. If the Tri-Cities were a single city, it would be the fourth largest city  in the state of Washington, behind Seattle, Spokane, and Tacoma. The Tri-Cities  make up the largest metropolitan area in the southeastern quadrant of Washington

The Tri-Cities are in a semi-arid climate, receiving an average of  7 to 8 inches of precipitation every year. Winds periodically exceed 30 mph when Chinook wind conditions exist. There are 300 days of sunshine every year. Temperatures range from as low as 10 F in the winter to as high as 110 in the summer, and even reached 115 F in July 2006. The region receives occasional snow most years. The large Cascade Mountain Range to the west contributes to the semi-arid climate.

The Tri-Cities economy has historically been based on farming and the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Recent years have seen the region's booming wine industry second in size only to California's Napa Valley. The production of Milk as well as Apples, grapes, Cherries, Grain, Alfalfa and many other Agriculture products keeps the Tri-Cities at the top of the list as one of the most favorable places for fresh Farm products.

Seven golf courses, Base Ball, Boating, Fishing, Camping, snow and water skiing, Schooling and much more, The Tri-Cities has something to offer most any interest.

The LDS Church is a big part of the Tri-Cities with a beautiful Temple where members can attend often. The Single

Adult program here is very active and involves not just the Tri-Cities, but Hermiston, Wala Wala, Yakima and Selah.

All Single Adults ages 31+, Members or Non Members of the Church are welcome to attend the activities.

As the Tri-Cities continues to grow and more people move here our little corner of the state diversifies to satisfy the tastes of the people that live here. Some people like the Tri-Cities for its outdoor recreation. How many places can boast that they have a  river that runs thru all three cities! Some people like the small town feel. Some people like the mild climate. Some people move away but many find their way back.  All in all it is a pretty great place to live.

Seven Wonders of the World

A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present "Seven Wonders of the World." Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one quiet student hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help." The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the 'Seven Wonders of the World' are:

1.  TO SEE
2.  TO HEAR
3.  TO TOUCH
4.  TO TASTE
5.  TO FEEL
6. TO LAUGH
7.  AND TO LOVE

The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. Just a gentle reminder - that the most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or bought by man. "Each day comes bearing its own gifts -- learn to untie the ribbons
