Groundbreaking

After months of fundraising and planning, the Hermiston School District breaks ground on a renovation project for Kennison Field.

The field was shut down last May due to safety concerns.

Since then, the district has come up with $4 million to pay for the project.

$700,000 came from donations from businesses and individuals.

A Portland contractor is working on the project.

The field is expected to re-open this fall.
