Community Education getting ready for its move to Jefferson


WILLMAR -- More space, a bigger outdoor playground and a city park across the street are some of the advantages Willmar Community Education and Recreation will find when they move to the Jefferson Learning Center.

But they'll also give up some things when they move to a building with smaller classrooms and fewer restrooms.

The move is part of a reorganization plan in the Willmar School District. Two buildings, including Washington, are being closed.
