Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Hosts Coffee Fridays for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

The Next Gathering is Friday, January 20, 2017


Coffee Fridays will continue in 2017! The Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Family and Community Health Sciences (FCHS) Program invites Grandparents Raising Grandchildren to join them for Coffee Fridays again in 2017. The first get together of the new year will take place on Friday, January 20, 2017. Grandparents meet for coffee and conversation from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 355 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, New Jersey 08210. The building is handicap accessible.

Marilou Rochford, FCHS Educator, said, “Coffee Fridays provide grandparents with a chance to meet with other grandparents in a safe and relaxed atmosphere. They can unwind over a cup of coffee while discussing issues and concerns related to raising their grandchildren.” Rochford added, “While most grandparents plan to spend time with their grandchildren, they don’t plan to raise them. Taking responsibility for a grandchild can raise many questions.” Grandparents are invited to come learn about some of the resources and support available to them and also share their thoughts and concerns.

Additional Coffees Fridays are planned for February 17, March 17, April 14, May 19, September 22, October 20, and November 17, 2017.

There is no charge for this program, however, please RSVP by calling 465-5115, ext. 609.
