Senior Coffee and Cookies: every Friday, 10 a.m. to noon. This is a fantastic way to come together and enjoy conversations, play some games and find out about what is going on in our community. What I love most about this group is the comradery that they have. Some people have lived here for decades and others have moved here to be by family and grandkids. It's been great to see friendships develop and fellowship thrive.
