Vets coffeehouse
hours expanded
DANIELSON — The nine-month old RSVP Veterans Coffeehouse, already known as the “go-to” spot for veterans in northeastern Connecticut, now will offer vets even more opportunities to attend.  Starting Jan. 19, the Coffeehouse will be open every Tuesday instead of just twice each month.
 “They really appreciate the opportunity to gather with each other and build camaraderie,” said Greg Kline, RSVP Coffeehouse coordinator.  “There’s a common bond here—whether they served in World War II, Korea, the Cold War, Vietnam, or the Middle East—they all answered the call of duty and served our nation.
Strong and steady attendance backs this expansion.  Since opening in April, 230 unique individual veterans have visited the Coffeehouse as part of a total attendance of 750+.  Attendance has averaged 35+ veterans at each meeting.  
The Veterans Coffeehouse  is hosted by TVCCA’s RSVP program at Killingly Community Center, 185 Broad St., Killingly (Danielson).  It is the only Veterans Coffeehouse of its kind in the state.  In addition to the now weekly Tuesday morning sessions, the Coffeehouse will continue its evening hours on the second Tuesday of each month from 6 to 7:30 pm.  Free bus passes donated by Northeastern Connecticut Transit District and good for trips to and from the Coffeehouse are available at the Coffeehouse.
Veterans and family members needing more information about the Veterans Coffeehouse may contact Kline at 860-774-9286.
