Warming center coordinators say first season was a success

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

The Wausau Warming Center has closed for its first season.

Coordinators said more than 40 people who had no place to sleep on cold winter nights spent time in the center.

They said now they're looking forward to next year and hopefully finding a way to help people through the summer.

"This has been quite a remarkable learning experience, but a very rewarding experience, meeting our guests has been quite awesome for me, they have been terrific people," said Warming Center Coordinator, Diane Borchardt.

Directors said they celebrated the closure Monday morning with their guests by holding a big breakfast.
