Marilyn & Meredith

Meredith & Marilyn are the Coffeehouse Veterans/ Volunteer for the month of December. 

They bake, buy and solicit great nourishing foods (well almost) & all kinds of fruits, drinks, cakes and pastries every week for the veterans. They set us the day before and clean up weekly and assist the handicapped vets.  Marilyn is in charge of the Dazzle Light Parade and it was GREAT this year and the Coffeehouse made a fantastic showing in Putnam.  Meredith has successfully run two profitable years of our Veteran's Calendar Project.  THESE TWO WOMEN are very instrumental in the success of the Danielson Veterans Coffeehouse.  A BIG THANK YOU to both of them. 

November Veterans of the Month

Pete Houle & Lou Trahan

The Danielson Veterans Coffeehouse would like to recognized Pete Houle & Lou Trahan as November Veterans of the Month.  They come in early each Tuesday and set up chairs and tables and stay afterwards to put everything back.  We also thank them for shampooing the rugs at St. John's Lutheran Church, as the church was kind enough to let us have our Coffeehouse for the summer months.

Thank you Pete & Lou.
