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!

Reminder: The next Brat Fry is in July, and it’s never too early to sign up. 🙂

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

March Newsletter and Calendar

March 1, 2011 • JAK's Place

Sorry about the late update. The newsletter was out earlier than usual; some variant of Murphy’s Law must say that had to be made up for. 🙂

The Fifth Annual Love Festival Concert was excellent. (Click on the photos below to see them larger.)

We’re having a memorial service at JAK’s for Gabi on Tuesday, March 22, starting at 4:00. There will be no dinner that day, and no reservations are necessary. The kitchen will, from now on, be known as “Gabriele’s Kitchen”.

So here’s the newsletter already:

NAMI–DC and JAK’s Newsletter Feb. 2011

January 27, 2011 • JAK's Place

We mourn the passing of a staff member who was intensely active in the community on the behalf of JAK’s Place. Gabriele Wolfe, or Gabi, left the painful battlefield of cancer on January 19. The current issue of our newsletter celebrates her memory.

January 2011 Newsletter and Calendar

December 27, 2010 • JAK's Place

Happy New Year!

The newsletter is at the printers — and right here. 🙂

January newsletter (PDF)

Jan-2011 Calendar (PDF)

December was a busy month. Not in the newsletter: JAK’s Place was open on Christmas day. Diane Melang originally volunteered to do this, but her house was sold suddenly and she had to move. We will miss her and her music. But the party went on, with a rusty but rockin’ substitute cook and guitar player.
