Coffee and a Chat

National Good Neighbor Day is Coming up and if you aren't already a good neighbor, this is your opporutnity to turn on the good works!

A very special person is needed to be a good neighbor to a local Hamden lady who needs a visitor or companion to spend some time with her after dinner; between 6 p.m and the early evening. She loves to hear the news, especially the local interest, maybe read a magazine article or just chat over a cup of java this is a great opportunity to start being a good neighbor. This opportunity is not for the faint of heart, because legal blindness is not the only issue here - this position does not involve any health or personal care.
