The Advocates of Peace gave out free hugs on Thursday, Sept. 22, outside the Coffee Shop, in recognition of Free Hugs Day.
Club President Cammy Eschler set up a booth with a small stack of signs offering free hugs at 12:20 p.m. and rapidly gained participants for the event by word of mouth.
Eschler said that people today aren’t social enough.
“It’s all social networking anymore,” she said.
