Holy winter! JAK’s Place has been closed down way too many times by weather lately. The worst of it is, the snow and deadly cold always strike on a Tuesday. We’ve always had a policy of closing on days that the schools close. Updates are posted on our FaceBook page, and we also try to call our regulars and anyone who has already signed up. It’s not that we don’t want to stay open, but when it is really too dangerous to be out, we don’t want to encourage people to take risks.
The good news is, it’s Love Festival Concert time again, and it’s our EIGHTH! So don’t miss it. The concert starts at 2pm, with refreshments afterwards. Bring your Valentine sweetheart. Everything’s free, but of course we do accept donations. This year’s performers are:
- The Bone Boys
- New Day Singers
- Elizabeth Spaude, flute
- Denise Zenko, Organ and piano
- T.J. Walker Middle School 6th Grade Chorus, under the direction of Leslie Hill
There are ca. 60 young persons in that choir!
Another bright note — Bettie Greenwood has another beautiful quilt for us. Let’s get the fires burning for this year’s Quilt Raffle. Think of places where we can display the quilt, and talk it up. Details of time and tickets will be posted here, in future newsletters, and on FaceBook.
