Coffee at Kickstand is Back!

Table with coffee mugs

Greetings, all. AE founder Margy Rydzynski is making a great deal of progress, health-wise. For those who haven’t heard, she was diagnosed this spring with an uncommon auto-immune disorder called Pemphigus Vulgaris. She’s been in treatment for months and that work is paying off. There’s still a way to go, but she has sufficient stamina to host our first Coffee at Kickstand in months.

We hope you’ll join Margy in celebrating her recovery and getting together for an afternoon break. Isolation is not good for anybody (including Margy, she found out), so do yourself some good by getting away from those four walls. You’ll come back energized and creative.

Coffee at Kickstand
Wednesday, November 13 from 2:30 – 4:00 pm
Kickstand Cafe, Arlington Center, Massachusetts
Parking is available
