Three Lawrence health care agencies will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine.
Voters approved a 1-cent sales tax on Nov. 8, 1994, and three years later, ground was broken to build the $14.1 million facility that has served 391,511 Douglas County residents since opening in 1999.
The original occupants — Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department and Douglas County Visiting Nurses, Rehabilitation and Hospice Care — continue to use the building.
An open house will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 8. A ribbon-cutting, followed by comments from former and current community leaders, will take place from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Local radio personality Hank Booth will emcee the event and the Alferd Packer Memorial String Band will perform.
The public can take self-guided tours of the facility from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
