Coffee Row was a busy place on Tuesday when both Darlene Yuke and Darlene Stevenson brought baking for everyone to enjoy. Twenty-two people attended that morning. The Angel Food Cake and fresh cinnamon buns, cookies and mini strudel were devoured along with “free coffee” bought by Darlene Yuke. Darlene Stevenson gave a donation to the hut as coffee was already paid for. Thank you, girls, and we hope you both have a happy, healthy year.
