Mil-Civ Coffee

Hostess Cory Bakke opened her house to the Military-Civilian Club for a morning coffee to introduce new members and kick off the year of luncheons and activities. Members signed up for activities, special events and enjoyed the gathering which was chaired by Ferne Burney and catered by Fresh Horizons. Cory’s spacious backyard lent itself to areas for members to sign up and pay for luncheons, donate to the charitable foundation, and reserve a spot for a special event.  Several attendees included Beth Plummer, Caryn Hasslocher, Debbie McDonald, Linda Skop, Becky Smith, Loretta Patterson, Terri Pixley, Francine Rowden, Rebecca Hermanson, Kerry Rutledge, Jenny Gibson, Jane Allgood, Rhonda Calvert, Jennifer Sparr, Melinda Biggs, Laura Urbis, Mary Wieser, Victoria Wood, and Heather Hooten.

The group, whose purpose is to foster patriotism and the integration of the military and civilian communities of San Antonio, is making plans to celebrate and recognize the upcoming Centennial Celebration in 2021.
