    Join us for some lively conversations, connect with old friends, and meet some new  - all from the comfort of your home. There always seems to be plenty of things to talk about.

    Whether you live on the East Side or the West side, you are invited to join us for breakfast via your smartphone, tablet or computer in the comfort of your home.

    We will be meeting on the second Thursday of each month from 9:00a.m. to 10:00 a.m.


    We think it is prudent to avoid direct contact for at least a little while, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up conversation with our friends over a sweet roll and a cup of coffee. We can have a virtual, bring-your-own-sweet-roll breakfast without having to change out of our pajamas! And we can overcome the divide between East and West by setting up a digital meeting at which the Sofra gang and the Elie’s gang can get to know one another.

    We look forward to "seeing" you.

    The international Crane Foundation works worldwide to conserve cranes and the ecosystems, watersheds, and flyways on which they depend. They provide knowledge, leadership, and inspiration to engage people in resolving threats to cranes and their diverse landscapes.

    The International Crane foundation is committed to a future where all 15 of the world's crane species are secure.  Through the charisma of cranes, we envision a future where people work together to protect and restore wild crane populations and the landscapes they depend on - and by doing so, find new pathways to sustain our water, land, and livelihoods,
