Whichever way they blow, the winds of March bring Spring. This winter hasn’t been as hard as some, but the relief will be welcome all the same.
The Tenth Annual Love Festival Concert went off without a hitch. A big thankyou to all the performers, the volunteers, and the generous donors. Ten years of JAK’s Place, think of that! Here we still are, and here we will remain, with a new beginning almost in sight, like those spring flowers waiting beneath the frozen ground.
In this month’s newsletter, Skyler Champeau explains the mission of his Armor Group. Not just another little artsy-craftsy social, Armor Against Stigma hopes to raise funds to support JAK’s Place by creating saleable products. Skyler has an unusual skill to teach, that of medieval armorer. You’ve seen chain mail in movies; now you can learn how to make it.
JAK’s Place will be closed on Good Friday, the 25th. On Thursday, March 10th, Seth will not be available for Tai Chi, but we will try a little without him. Seth is now a Peer Specialist, having completed months of training and passed all tests with excelent scores. His internship keeps him a little busier than usual.
