Today’s news about a brazen daylight armed robbery should make us all think. Oliver’s Café isn’t just a place to get pancakes and coffee –it’s quickly become a cornerstone of the community in the Lents Town Center.
First, we can be grateful that no one was physically hurt. A few dollars can be replaced –it’s people that matter.
Fortunately there’s something all of us can do to show our support and help dispel the psychological harm that this kind of crime can inflict. Neighborhood chair Nick Christensen is asking supporters of Oliver’s to stop in tomorrow (Saturday) morning to get a great breakfast and show your support.
We’ll see you there.
Oliver’s is at 8931 SE Foster Road. They open at 7am.
