Let's Look Around
March began by contributing "something different" to a
winter already rich with entertainment. The Kiwanis
Minstrel Show, Community concerts, dramatic presentations
by the Village Players, plus the annual appearance of
our own Meistersingers Chorus all lent an atmosphere of
culture and gaiety to our community.
Education highlighted the news a P.A. Wright was appointed
superintendent of schools and the Atomic Energy Commission
announced that immediate financial and transportation aid
would be given to the over crowded schools in six communities
surrounding the Hanford Works' Area.
The Village residents participated in the close-out sale of
government furniture as the Prime Contractor instituted a
policy of leasing all conventional type homes unfurnished.
April bought the appointment of R.C. Muir as head of the
newly-formed Nucleonics Department of the Gen real Electric
Company with headquarters located at Hanford Works and
during this month the "old" Richland actually went out of
existence. As a result of this legal action the new
unincorporated community of Richland actually superceded
the strange ghost city that had existed only on paper
since the inception of the project.
