Informal Sunday veterans' gathering

Several U.S. Veteran parishioners gather for coffee (and to hear or tell stories) in the auditorium Sunday mornings between 8 and 11 a.m. All are welcome! Bring photos, scrapbooks, memories or anything others might find interesting. This is not a formal gettogether, just coffee and interesting conversation. If you come on scheduled USO collection days (the second Sunday of the month) be sure to bring something for the donation box.
