Cedar Caffeine Café creates community through hot drinks and warm smiles. The café is a mini-business run by Life Skills classrooms at Lebanon High School. The coffee shop grew out of an in-school coffee delivery service for faculty and staff. Now it operates as a full-service coffee shop three days each week. The students run the show, with all proceeds going to Life Skills and Autistic Support classrooms. These proceeds have resulted in expenses-paid trips for the students to Red Robin (a chance to practice restaurant skills) as well as that highly-desirable end of year reward: A trip to Hersheypark.

If you want to support the Life Skills program, watch out for their handmade earrings and custom keychains, made as part of the “Go Cedars! Creation” business, at the IU13 Bazaar and other craft fairs around the county.
