Greater Grays Harbor tells KXRO that the State of Grays Harbor will be held on Tuesday, June 28th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Rotary Log Pavilion.

“Our local economy and demographics are changing,” explains Lynnette Buffington, GGHI CEO, “and the data presented in the EVI is essential to planning our future and addressing our needs. It is a pleasure to bring this event back to the community and feature some of our greatest leaders in the region on the topic.”
