Saturday, October 8, the first emergency warming center of the 2011-2012 season opened at Seven Day Baptist Church. Thirty-five guests stayed from 7 p.m. until almost 8 a.m. (The emergency warming centers usually close at 7 a.m. but the hosts invited folks to stay a little longer since the first bus back into the city doesn’t come until about 8:15 a.m.) The temperature dropped to about 35 deg F during the night and it was wet. Many thanks to the host site, the volunteers who visited and the staff who worked.
And remember, if you want to know if an emergency warming center will open on a given night, call the status line at 303.605.8919 to hear a recorded message.
All good wishes!
