Grand Opening began with Florence Ambassadors and Mayor Joe Henry  at the ribbon cutting ceremony.  Champagne and cake and a tour of the newly remodeled facility. 

At  7pm the free variety show was a big hit (standing room only).  Talented performers from the coast  provided an amazing array of singing, dancing, comedy and drama.  It was  a perfect beginning to our adventure.

Performers in the evening variety show included Debra Young, the Siuslaw Youth Choir, Maree Beers, Jason Wood, Matt Korso, Angela Palmer, Ron Wallace, Jared Anderson, David Lauria and Rosemary Lauria.
