Coffee and Conversation
The Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum will be hosting Coffee and Conversation with guest speakers from 9–11 a.m. on the second and fourth Saturday of each month. The public is invited to hear veterans share their stories over coffee and light refreshments in an informal setting at the museum.
There will be an opportunity to watch short videos, learn about the broader context of the military conflict they were engaged in, and ask questions of the speaker and other veterans. Afterwards visitors can tour the museum or research the topics discussed in the museum’s library. The talks are free of charge.
