August Newsletter and Calendar

July 29, 2011 • JAK's Place

We’re surviving the summer heat — and hoping to have air conditioning soon! Meanwhile, here’s the latest newsletter with some tips on how to keep your cool on those 90+-degree days, by Candace Worrick, and all the news that’s fit to print — or that fits in print 🙂

Faith in Recovery has been canceled for the month. Marlys is recovering from a broken arm, and won’t be able to drive for some time.

The storm sewer construction is making access to JAK’s a little more difficult. Our back driveway to 8th Avenue is blocked; only the front entrance is available. Our neighbors are using the front drive too, so be carefull of the extra traffic.

Jellystone Park Benefit for JAK’s Place

July 24, 2011 • JAK's Place

Saturday, August 6th KIDS CARNIVAL
Located at Jellystone Park, 3677 May Rd (Cty SB), Sturgeon Bay

Jim & Jill Kavicky [Owners] would greatly appreciate Youth & other Volunteers to help with games. If you could volunteer for an hour or two, please call Jim or Jill Kavicky at 743-9001.


To start the day, Yogi will be holding a charity walk for JAK’s Place, a local support center that improves the quality of life for individuals with mental disorders and their families.

Later, join the fun and enjoy a variety of carnival games and activities for the children! Enter our raffles for free camping and other great gifts from local businesses. Proceeds go to JAK’s Place in Sturgeon Bay and local food pantries.

Please bring non-perishable canned food items (e.g., chicken or beef broth, soup, Spaghetti-O’s or fruit) to donate to the charity food pantry at check-in, and receive one complimentary raffle ticket per family. There will also be a DJ dance on Saturday night.

Thank you, Jim & Jill Kavicky!

New look for the site

July 16, 2011 • JAK's Place

Your sometimes-alert webmistress thought that it was about time for a little redecoration. One gets tired of the same old colors after a while. 🙂

July Newsletter and Calendar

June 29, 2011 • JAK's Place

No fireworks, but a lot of work going on around JAK’s these days. The landscape is getting chewed up by big machines, and our “little house” is preparing to move.

Lots more to read about in the newsletter, not the least of which is the annual NAMI Picnic, Monday July 11 at Otumba Park. Gathering at 5pm; bring a dish to share.

This is what they used to chew a narrow trench in the grond — rocks and all — to bury a new gas line. It was kind of scary to see it rip up and spit out dirt and broken rock.

No, it didn’t eat our sign — or our garbage can! 😉

Notice the flourishing garden beds just out of reach of the earth-eating monster. There’s a lot more construction destruction to come, but our flowers and veg will survive.

June Newsletter and Calendar

May 27, 2011 • JAK's Place

April showers were nothing to what we got in May. The garden is off to a good start so far. The perennial flowers are doing well. Our daffodils were spectacular, and the irises are about to happen — don’t miss it!

This month’s newsletter is small in download size but large in content, with an excellent article by Rev. Bill Wiederanders about the last NAMI Wisconsin Conference. And if you have rhubarb, we have a recipe for you!

May Newsletter and Calendar

April 28, 2011 • JAK's Place

April showers bring May newsletters. It’s time for the NAMI Doorways again, combined with the JAK’s newsletter. It doesn’t have a lot of photos, so the dial-up downloads should not take all day. Just yell at the editor if you ever have a problem.

Don’t forget it’s Valmy Brat Fry Season again! We need volunteers for morning and afternoon shifts. Good smiling skills required.

Spring flowers are popping up all over. Keep an eye on the gardens!

Crocuses, Easter morning
