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!

December Newsletter and Calendar

November 23, 2010 • JAK's Place

The holiday season is in full swing. This is a time of merriment…or is it? Depression is a more common theme than many people care to admit. More than ever, some need the support that NAMI and JAK’s Place can provide.

We are going to be open on Christmas day this year, so that those who have nowhere else to go — or would rather not spend the holiday with family — can join the JAK’s “family” for dinner and holiday music.

The newsletter and calendar are ready; we hope to get the hard copy snail-mailed tomorrow.

November newsletter and calendar

October 29, 2010 • JAK's Place

The snail-mailed newsletter had a dozen uncorrected errors in it because the wrong file was sent to the printer. The editor is suitably embarrassed. The file uploaded here is the fully corrected version. The calendar seems to be all right 🙂

CSP Halloween cake

The Halloween party was a howling success, attended by 45 assorted monsters! The chili and spaghetti were pronounced awesome by many guys and ghouls.

This month the JAK’s Newsletter is nestled inside the larger NAMI Doorways. There are lots of pictures in this issue; lots of events going on. Two versions have been prepared, one that preserves detail better and one that will download more quickly.

September Newsletter and Calendar

August 26, 2010 • JAK's Place

Not in the printed newsletter: The guest presenter at the Sept. 13 NAMI general meeting will be Mona Pagel. She plans to speak on “Building Strong Families and Communicating the Hard Stuff”.

Mona is with Counseling Associates of Door County LLP, 620 N 12 Ave, Sturgeon Bay WI (920) 743-9554

Also newsworthy: JAK’s Place has a laptop and projector now. This is great for giving presentations out in the community, and it will make group computer classes possible. More than one person can see what is happening on the screen. Let us know if you are interested in subjects such as file management, organizing e-mail and handling attachments, Internet safety, Facebook….

Calendar errors

July 30, 2010 • JAK's Place

Well, as usual, the editor had a screw loose and missed a thing or two on the calendar. There was a leftover from last month — we are not closed on Friday the 6th. An amended calendar has been uploaded. The link is the same —
