J’s Place provides coffee and community updates

Many community members gathered at a local coffee shop on Friday to enjoy free samples of muffins, coffee, live music and updates on the community.

J’s Place becomes the central meeting place for “Community Night,” every three to four months to inform community members about upcoming events in the coffee shop, as well as in the community.

“J’s Place is about the betterment of the community,” said Kristyn Abelar, manager at J’s Place. “So it brings the non-profit organizations together to show where everybody is at.”

Speakers for this Community Night included Brad Sumeracki, chairman of the board for the upcoming Nicholasville Farmers’ Market, Pam Smith, executive director of All God’s Children, Todd Johns, executive director and founder of Revive Ministries, Johnny Templin, executive director of the Jessamine County Homeless Shelter and Ronda May, executive director of the Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce.

“It brought everybody onto the same page as to what is happening in the community, and everybody had a good time,” Abelar said. “It was a good night.”
