"I just wanted to say thank you for signing me up to the Wausau Area Newcomers Services! I was talking to my mom and telling her how I received this huge folder/box on my porch explaining all events/places in Wausau! So thank you again! I appreciate it!! There is a lot of helpful information in there, and looks like lots of places to check out!!"
