Change in Republic Coffee Meetings

by on Oct.05, 2012, under Meetings

Republic Coffee has made some changes to our usual meeting room. It’s now a comfortable study hall with quiet intimate booths. We will be meeting in the larger back room affectionately called “The Way Back Room”. The large tables have already been moved into the room, we supposedly have a bit more space and more seating. It has quite a few electrical outlets. There will be a chalkboard by the entrance way letting people know that we are all the way in the back.
See you tonight!
