The Main Street Cafe debuted a new segment this week. Every Monday morning at 7:20 Chad and Beth will be joined by Addie and Kali with The Event Company.

The feature is called 'Out and About with Addie and Kali' and will focus on community events - because, after all, "It's never too early to start planning for next weekend."

Here's this week's report:
