SATURDAY, June 28 is a date for the men of Cooma to remember. St Andrew's Uniting Church will host Cooma's Men's Breakfast, with the morning offering a great chance for men hailing from all walks of life to converge and enjoy each others company.
A men's breakfast used to be a regular fixture in Cooma, however the absence of this ever-popular event prompted the men of the Uniting Church to forge their own men's gathering.
A hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs will be provided; the men will be able to chat over a cuppa. It doesn't matter what the topic is according to Reverend David Russell, the most important outcome for the breakfast will be the opportunity for the men of Cooma to get together.
"It was suggested amongst the men of the church that it would be a good idea to hold a men's breakfast," Rev Russell said.
"Men often only get together in a sporting context so listening and socialising in a different environment isn't a bad thing to do."
At this stage the breakfast will be used to trial the popularity of holding a regular morning for the men of Cooma.
"I wouldn't want to formalise it into certain discussions, these issues will flow. I don't know if it has lofty goals, more so just than a gathering."
Rev Russell will be the guest speaker, sharing his experiences which brought him to Cooma last year. It will be $5 per person, with Rev Russell encouraging all men to turn up to the breakfast.
"I encourage all to come, while it's held in a church it wont be a religious gathering."
The morning will start at 8am, as the first egg is cracked and the first rash of bacon sizzles.
