Warming Center honors volunteers


The Lebanon Warming Center is celebrating its first year of sheltering people in need from cold winter weather.

An open house for the facility at the Seventh Day Adventist Church’s Cansler Education Center was held Sunday afternoon.

Volunteers spoke about how the center helped those needing a warm place to sleep during freezing weather. It opened its doors for the first time in January.

Guests were allowed to tour the building after a brief program. The facility includes bathrooms, showers and laundry services. A change of clothing can also be provided if needed.

An award for the most dedicated volunteer was presented to Charlie Hambrick.
