PULLMAN – A public ceremony will be held to celebrate the reopening of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Pullman, five months after the facility was damaged by arson.
KREM-TV reports that guests of the reopening ceremony, which will be held Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., include Gov. Jay Inslee’s wife, Trudy, and Pullman City Councilman Nathan Weller.
Major construction work has been done on the clinic. Crews installed new walls, ceilings, carpeting and fixtures. The clinic also received significant security upgrades, including cameras and exterior lighting.
Police have said someone threw a flammable object through the building’s window on Sept. 4, causing a fire. No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
The center serves about 3,000 patients in the region.
