Game Days

March 7, 2011 • JAK's Place

Instead of one day a month, we will have two Game Days — the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month will be devoted to games from 1:00 to 2:30 (and later, if you’re in the mood).

These are not the only days when visitors can indulge in fun and games, but our “Games Master” will be here on the designated days.

So c’mon in and beat somebody at checkers, or chess, or — whatever. Have fun, anyway 🙂

Dorothy Scott Live at JAK’s Place

December 7, 2010 • JAK's Place


Our first after-dinner concert ever was a smashing success. There’s nothing like live music, and Dorothy is an awesome performer, accompanying herself with guitar and piano. After several solo songs, she had us drum along with a couple.

We hope to have more events like this in the future. Hey, all you musicians out there!

Door-2-Door in action

August 3, 2010 • JAK's Place

I took a walk today in spite of the heat. When I was almost home, walking through Garland Park (where Jefferson St. meets North 8th Ave.), I saw the Door-2-Door vans parked there. That gave me an idea — why not do some shopping?

I continued home, wherre I wiped off some sweat and put my wallet and shopping list in my pocket. Then I went back to the park.

I said I needed to go to EconoFood. After a few small difficulties with a Blackberry phone, we were off “like a herd of turtles”, to quote Dan the driver.

a nice ride

The vans are comfortable. It’s a big step in for a short person, but not too difficult. the driver was very courteous and helpful.

When I was done shopping, I realized that Econo doesn’t have any pay phones (I am cell-free). However, the young woman at the service counter made the call for me.

There was a wait for the ride back, but I had no ice cream to melt. Bear that in mind if you do your grocery shopping in summer; it’s not a bad idea to bring an insulated bag or other type of cooler for perishable foods.

I shared the ride back with another member of JAK’s Place.
