    Event Description:
    Join us for the weekly Chamber Coffee of the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce.

    Help us celebrate 20 years of "Life in a Jar: the Irena Sendler Project". Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic social worker who risked her own life to rescue a significant number of Jewish children during WWII. Her story was unknown for 60 years until high school students from Uniontown, Kansas uncovered its details in September of 1999, and shared Irena's story with the world. The students wrote a performance that has now been presented more than 375 times across the United States, Canada and Poland. Their goal to bring Irena Sendler's story to the world continues.

    Chamber Coffees are hosted at a different member business or organization location each week.  The event starts at 8am, generally the first 20 minutes is mingling & networking; followed by announcement of guests & new Chamber members; followed by remarks from the host business or organization; followed by a door prize drawing.  The Coffees usually end between 8:45-8:50am.
