PLEASE NOTE: The DV-Coffeehouse Board of Directors have decided to close the Coffeehouse until March 1, 2021 due to the increase COVID cases. Although Windham County has a lower rate of cases, there has been an increase from the past and we do not want to put any of our veterans and/or volunteers in jeopardy as we want to keep everyone safe.
The Board will reassess in late February for a potential opening date.
