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.

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 It is free, and while much easier to learn to use than many other video editors, is capable of producing pretty slick videos.

Summer is about to fade into fall. It was a busy one at JAK’s Place. So much went on we can’t put half of it in the newsletter, but watch for new pages here. 🙂

There’s plenty of activity this month too. On Saturday, September 15, we’re celebrating the beginning of our 7th year with an Open House. JAK’s Place will be open from 11am to 2pm, and the Quilt Raffle drawing will be at 2:00! You can buy tickets up until 1:30.

Two Packer Parties are scheduled for your Sunday afternoon pleasure; games start at 3:15 on September 9 and 30.

The Journaling Poets Group will be meeting on Fridays, instead of Thursdays. Magda’s Nutrition class will be on Thursdays at 4:00. Friday is still Computer Day. Yoga and Tai Chi on all Mondays except the first; we’ll ve closed for Labor Day.
