Coastal Coffee has changed hands. Ken and Karen would like to take this opportunity to thank all their "cheerleaders", "volunteers of the month", and supporters during the last 5 years. They have formed many friendships during that time with guests from near and far. Ken and Karen invite you to welcome Patrick and Celine Kelley, Owners of the new "Coastal Cafe and Bakery", to our community. Patrick and Celine are a lovely young couple, full of energy and drive and they are aiming for an end of April opening. Ken and Karen invite you all to welcome them to our community. We'll be there and hope you will too. Thank you all for a great 5 years...K & K
