September Newsletter and Calendar

August 28, 2013 • JAK's Place

ANOTHER YEAR has gone around, and JAK’s Place is about to celebrate its 8th Anniversary with an Open House. Saturday, September 21, from 11am to 2pm, the whole world is welcome to stop by for a visit. We will have all sorts of tasty snacks. The climactic event of the day will be the Quilt Raffle drawing, at 2. There’s still time to buy tickets (or help us sell some).

You wouldn’t want to mis a chance at this lovely quilt, would you? Even if you don’t need it yourself, think what a great present it would make — Christmas, birthday, wedding….

Anyway, here are the newsletter and calendar for September. Note that we are closed on Labor Day, and also on Thursday, the 12th. We have THREE Sunday Packer Parties this month, however! Sept. 8th at 3:30, and at noon on the 15th and 22nd.

*The extra closed day and the Packer Parties are not in the calendar that was sent to CSP.

August Newsletter and Calendar

July 26, 2013 • JAK's Place

The latest NAMI Doorways / JAK’s newsletter and JAK’s Place calendar are ready to pick up.

The CSP Picnic is on Friday, August 23. Gathering starts at 11am, dinner at 12. Games, swimming, just lounging around on the beach, and BINGO with prizes! Get down to Sunset Park with your sunscreen and have some fun. JAK’s will be closed that day.

We are hoping to sell more Quilt Raffle tickets this month. Don’t forget that the Open House and raffle drawing are next month. Any ideas on good places to display the quilt and sell tickets, give us a heads-up at JAK’s Place.

There will be Yoga on the 5th, 12th, and 19th, but not on the 26th.

July Newsletter and Calendar

June 27, 2013 • JAK's Place

It sure is summer. The annual NAMI-Door County picnic is just around the corner. Monday, July 8, is the day; Otumba Park is the place; and 5:00 is the time. Dinner will be served at 5:30. We’re hoping to make our own little music festival this year, so bring an instrument if you have one. Everyone has a voice 😉

A lot has happened in the past month. The gardens are bursting forth from fresh compost, there’s a new(er) and rather awesome computer in the office, and a riding mower in the shed. We had a record-making Brat Fry, and we hope for a repeat performance at the end of July. The Quilt Raffle is progressing well, so far. Don’t forget that tickets are available at JAK’s Place!

Another new thing is that NAMI-Door County is now on twitter! Follow us — @NAMIdoor

So, here are the latest JAK’s newsletter and calendar. Please note that there will be no meal on Tuesday, July 9, the day after the Picnic.

Email Problems

April 29, 2013 • JAK's Place

Note — things have cleared up for now.

We have had quite a few emails “bounce” recently. It seems that a server that our regular email goes through has been blacklisted by SpamCop. The ISPs (Internet Service Providers) of some of our newsletter e-subscribers use the SpamCop service, which now blocks any emails from us Therefore, some subscribers who use their ISP’s email service are not receiving our monthly newsletter emails. Those who use “generic” email services, like Yahoo or Gmail, are generally not affected.

The effect has been erratic, but it is definitely messing up our information delivery. Although it may be temporary, it could increase. There is not much we can do about it, except to use a different email account. So, for a while at least, our Gmail account will be used for our official mailings. Look for email from jaksplace2006 (at) gmail.com.

April Newsletter

March 29, 2013 • JAK's Place

The latest NAMI Doorways is hitting snailboxes already. Flowers are peeking out between old snowbanks, and most of us have missed seeing the first robin of spring (I mean, how do we know it’s the first anyway? Only some unlucky worm knows for sure).

There is a small error in the calendar that was sent to CSP; we will not be closed on the first of April. Kind of an accidental April Fool’s joke. There definitely will be Tai Chi and Yoga, too.

Though winter is over, it’s still cold enough to need a quilt at night. The Quilting Ladies of Holy Name of Mary Chuch, Maplewood, donated one of their productions to JAK’s Place. It’s not as elegant as our raffle quilt, but very warm and cozy. Anyone in need of covering can claim it.

The Film Group is picking up momentum. Our moviemakers are considering entering Tech Soup’s Digital Storytelling contest. Anyone is welcome to join the group, whether or not they have a camera or a computer. The JAK’s computers are available for use by the group as well as for general computer learning purposes. The software of choice for video editing is Wax, from www.debugmode.com. It is free, and while much easier to learn to use than many other video editors, is capable of producing pretty slick videos.
