Niagara Gazette —
There is a regular “Meet and Greet” the first Wednesday of the month at the Tim Horton’s at 8500 Niagara Falls Blvd., for people would like to know more about joining. The ladies put a sign up on a couple of tables and welcome everyone to sit down for coffee and conversation.
The women know that there are people who would like to attend but who don’t feel comfortable or safe doing so, and they just want to get the word out that making the effort is worth the time.
“I knew about the group for 30 years before I had the courage to go,” said Bobbie Harper of Lockport, who is now the group’s president.
“It totally enriched my life,” added Velky. “My kids joke that I have a better social life than they do.”
