August 2nd saw the beginning of the Tuesday Coffee klatch, because a cup of fresh brewed coffee and good conversations with friends is always a good idea.
August 2nd was attended by Jannett and Merle. That’s it. Just them. It could be argued that it wasn’t a great start. However it provided an opportunity to clear out the shed and check on supplies. The slow start just means we need to advertise it better. To that end, the following advertisement was published on social media sites. On Tuesday the 9th Ella and I joined them for coffee. With four of the six board members present we had an unofficial board meeting with no minutes taken. We talked about games and ways to engage more people in Tuesday and possible other days of the week.
