Nisqually tribe celebrates milestone in new elders building construction

From the Nisqually Valley News:

Construction is well under way for a new elders building located next to the tribe’s new health center at 4840 Journey St. SE. The facility is three times larger than the current one, at more than 22,000 square feet. It’s expected to open by March 2023. The community celebrated a milestone in the construction of the building on Thursday with a “topping out” ceremony, where the final beam is placed on the building before a roof is installed. The beam was signed by people who were involved in the planning and construction of the building, including Cleo Frank, the Elders Program Manager.
