Mikki Dudley is hoping to rekindle the warm camaraderie of 30 years ago.
She is organizing Coffee Connection beginning 9 to 11 a.m. Friday, April 6, at Faith Lutheran Church, 1611 Adams St., Ottawa. The monthly gathering is open to all women who wish to chat and meet with their neighbors. Coffee, tea and snacks will be served.
Women are welcome to bring their young children.
“Thirty years ago, we had a group called the Newcomers Club,” Dudley said. “We used to get together and have coffee and snacks. It was enjoyable, because we got to meet new people. I just want to start that up again.”
The gathering is free and guests do not have to bring anything. Future gatherings will be scheduled on the first Friday of each month. Call Dudley at 815-250-6343 for more information.
