Do you enjoy good coffee? Great food? Meeting new people? And socializing with old friends!!? Then join us for the Coffee Group! 🙂 This group meets every Tuesday at the Coffee Lodge on Exmouth Street at 1:00 pm.

Please note, as we have grown in numbers, the Coffee Lodge has agreed to reserve the back section of tables for us by the windows and benches. This will allow us to have our own space, without creating any barriers for the other customers.



Please join us for a special farewell coffee at the VON Community Room as we celebrate our president Kevin before he moves to British Columbia.

We hope everyone can join us for this well-deserved thank you. Best wishes on a new adventure and we hope to see you soon…..
