Bruno de Solenni, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2008 while serving with the Oregon National Guard.

Practical reasons prompted the Wild Rivers Community Foundation’s recent move from its previous location at 9th and J streets to its current location:

The new location is more visible, there’s enough space for a meeting room and a resource library and the move brings new life to a building that has been vacant for some time. But the view from the foundation’s new home at 990 Front Street represents what the community can do when it works together, said Board Chair Kevin Hartwick.
