August 28, 2015 • JAK's Place

The Momentous Event of the Month is our Open House on Saturday, September 19. JAK’s Place will celebrate the beginning of its tenth year. A lot has changed since the fall of 2006, and there’s more change to come, because change and growth are essential to life. Come on in, bring friends or family. There will be plenty of snacks.

Our last Valmy Brat Fry will be Sept. 4-7. Volunteers welcome up to the last minute!

Much more to read in the newsletter!

As ypu can see, the garden is flourishing. The tomatoes are reaching for the sky, and the roses have delivered their exquisite perfume all summer.

August 27, 2014 • JAK's Place

Here comes Fall, and JAK’s Place is celebrating its eighth birthday. Don’t miss our Open House on Saturday, September 20, from 11am to 1pm. At noon, some lucky person will win a queen size quilt. There’s still time to buy raffle tickets (hint hint hint).

Our newsletter is undergoing some changes. This is the last JAK’s Place-only issue. Next month the new NAMI Door County and JAK’s Place combined version becomes the norm.

We are also thinning our mailing list. Quite a few people who get the NAMI Doorways simply because their name got on the list will soon be dropped, unless they opt to receive email notification instead. It costs a lot to print and mail paper newsletters, and practically nothing to upload PDF files and send a “monthly spam.”

July 28, 2014 • JAK's Place

Wassup? Lots! Summerfest was a great success, considering how short a time we had to plan and prepare. There will definitely be more fundraisers of this sort. We’re planning a Second Chance silent auction at our Open House, September 20,  for the few items that didn’t sell.

The CSP Picnic will be at Sunset Park on Thursday, August 21, from 11am to 3:30 pm. JAK’s Place will be closed that day.

Our next Valmy Brat Fry is at the end of this month; four days, from August 29 through September 1. Get in on the fun — volunteers will be needed for morning or afternoon shifts each day. You get to smile at dozens of people — many of whom probably really need a smile — and eat one of Welsing’s awesome brats, while helping JAK’s Place.

There will be no Faith In Recovery on Friday, August 8.

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.
