Coffee Club Reminder

Greater Midwest Chapter
If you have a couple of spare hours on August 14, put on your lei, practice the hula, and attend our next PCMA/Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly event.

Every Thursday, the elderly are invited to come and enjoy Coffee Club with Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly. This free event features food, fun, volunteers, and, of course, coffee, and is designed to provide conversation and community for those who attend.
