(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A local coffee shop run by folks with intellectual and developmental disabilities marks its second anniversary Wednesday.

The Friendly Bean Café at the Lawrenceburg Public Library will mark the occasion with a barbecue. The celebration runs from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Lawrenceburg Public Library courtyard.
