Veterans Coffee Group meets May 11


Veterans Coffee Connection, a coffee group for veterans of all ages and branches of military service, will meet Wednesday, May 11, at 8:30 a.m. This month, the coffee will be held at Shining Hope Farms, located at 6347 St. Peters Church Rd. in Conover, N.C.

Shining Hope Farms will provide a tour of their facility and share informatio­n about their Saddles and Salutes program, which serves veterans as part of their support for veteran wellness. Through this program, veterans are taught riding and horsemansh­ip skills which have physical and emotional benefits while having the opportunit­y to bond with other veterans.

The Veterans Coffee Connection, sponsored by Carolina Caring, is

designed to be a welcoming place for veterans to meet other veterans in the area. This free gathering, which meets on the second Wednesday of every month, is a great place to share a cup of coffee, enjoy tasty doughnuts provided by Krispy Kreme and swap stories.

Carolina Caring for Veterans is proud to be a Level IV partner of the We Honor Veterans program, an awareness initiative spearheade­d by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organizati­on and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
