Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
After much discussion, it was decided to try something different for coffee this year. We will be picking a new place to visit each month. We will go to that location for the entire month, unless we decide to have an "away" coffee.  For the month of December
we will meet at the Starbucks inside Eastridge so we can keep warm and do a little shopping as needed.
