After a pandemic pause, our quarterly Community Coffee Hour event returned to Skyway Library better than before on November 18, 2023.
About 20 neighbors found a comfy spot in the Skyway Library to converse with new people, hear some recent community updates, and enjoy a light breakfast.
Breakfast options highlighted some local establishments, including fresh coffee from Winnie’s Cafe & Deli and donuts from Moon Village Bakery. Learn more about our local businesses and watch videos featuring both on the Support Local page.
Our featured speaker for the morning was King County Sheriff’s Office Community Service Officer Vickie Cariello. Vickie shared a presentation on fraud prevention, which is a major issue impacting our neighbors – many who have lost life savings without any recourse.
Have questions about fraud? Check out these resources:
- Federal Trade Commission’s How to Avoid a Scam page (do you know the FOUR signs of a scam?)
- AARP’s Scams & Fraud page (what are the SIX top scams to watch out for in 2024?)
- Consumer Report’s Scam Protection Guide (do you know how to spot a Facebook fraud?)
Thank you so much for joining us, and we hope to see you at the next quarterly Community Coffee Hour on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 11:30 a.m. back at Skyway Library!
