Curling club leaders put out a call for help

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

In just three months Wausau's new curling facility has gone from a giant hole in the ground, to a semi-constructed building.

"The building has really come together," Wausau Curling Club Vice President Jeff Stubbe said. "It was like a puzzle like it was made to be built."

In May the Wausau Curling Club broke ground on the multi-million dollar project. So far, the roof is in place and the walls have been built.

"It's really starting to all come together where you can envision what it is going to look like," Stubbe said.

But, the work isn't done yet. In fact, curling officials need some help to finish it. 

"We need volunteers to help lay piping so they can lay the concrete," Stubbe explained.

Leaders say they hope volunteers will help shave roughly $20,000 off the total cost. They've set aside the next two weeks to get the job done.

"We budgeted for this help, so if we don't get it the project will end up costing more," Stubbe said.

The curling facility is expected to be completed by this fall. Even thought it's not finished, city leaders say the project has already made a positive impact in the community.

"The construction is being done by local companies," Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple said. "We are putting workers back to work and keeping them working, it is good moral for the city."
