Published on October 10, 2018 3:05PM

PENDLETON — With Pendleton’s close proximity to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, people may be interested in the program at the upcoming meeting of the American Association of University Women.

The public is invited to hear Randy Bradbury, communication manager with the Washington State Department of Ecology Nuclear Waste Program. He will discuss “Hanford: Myth V. Reality.” The event is Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Vert Club Room, 345 S.W. Fourth St., Pendleton.

Hanford has been called the “most contaminated site in North America.” The site borders the Hanford Reach National Monument on the Columbia River.

The presentation will cover some of Hanford’s history and provide an update on the progress and challenges of the cleanup efforts, as well as explaining the importance of citizen involvement in the cleanup decisions.

The AAUW works to improve the lives of women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. The Pendleton branch is the nearest group in the region.
