Check out Uranus! As much as I want to do a play on words I just can't...

There has been much hard work, design and creativity that has gone into this project.

We reported a short time again about this beautiful project but it is now time to do the official ribbon cutting ceremony. Everyone is invited, so bring the entire family, also bring your mask and your social distancing skills. They will be enforcing safety measures to keep the public safe from Covid.

The Benton City Chamber invites you to take part in the ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the Benton City Revitalization Organization and the finalization or their Uranus Orbital Marker

This historic event will take place Sunday, April 25 at noon, directions to get to the marker: Take Babs ave to 4th street and park at the river access lot. Follow the walking trail for about five minutes, until you reach the marker.


They will be offering light appetizers and refreshments. The event takes place at noon.

The original post about Uranus;

The Benton City Revitalization Organization has developed several new designs to bring the community together with a "look" that will attract visitors. One of the newest and neatest projects was unveiled Sunday, February 28.
The community is excited to share the sculpture and kiosk for the Uranus orbital marker. It is a beautiful sculpture along with an informational kiosk that was designed by one of my talented friends in Benton City, Windy Welch.
The Mayor of Benton City, Linda Lehman joined Diane Liest, the president of the revitalization project along with a crowd of very excited residents for the groundbreaking project.
The attraction is another reason to get out and enjoy this spectacular weather, considering it is located along the beautiful walking trail near 14th Street. Here is a link to the location (Click here for directions).
I have already made plans to take my lunch break this week and stroll the walking path to take in some science. When I am finished I also plan on stopping by the Chamber of Commerce to get my commemorative t-shirt to mark the occasion, in all honesty I just chuckled so much when I read the shirt that I decided I couldn't live without one! I mean who doesn't want a t-shirt that reads "Looking for Uranus, it's in Benton City." I just love this little town and the people!
