I have not heard from any churches about the Tuesday coffee hours from April to Sept./Oct. It’s still early and plans can be made yet. Let me know and I will put the coffee hours in my resource file for future columns. Thank you to all those who faithfully give me news items for their respective towns/groups. I appreciate your help. My email is cs2152946@gmail.com and my phone with an answering machine is (507) 728-8346. Thank you again.
