Frohlich introduced Karen Frisch from Roseville, Minn., who is the regional community relations and development director for the Salvation Army. Frisch discussed the origin of the Salvation Army being a Christian, faith-based human services organization. It focuses on three major areas: Christian worship, social services and youth and adult programs. All three services support each other.
The Jamestown Salvation Army offers social services including case management, a food pantry, a youth center, dining room and worship center at its downtown location along with a thrift store and recycle center located on Business Loop West. Unique to Jamestown is the one-of-a-kind emergency disaster trailer which provides shelter and refreshments for emergency personnel and has been used extensively. Jamestown also provides prison after-care programs. Summer day camp is provided when funds are available. Currently, the food pantry is very busy, Frohlich said, and food items as well as non-food items are always needed. For additional information regarding the local Salvation Army, contact Capts. Mitch and Teresa Brecto.
On June 4 Jason Bitz will introduce Joyce Heinrich for the program and she will give an update on the new dog park in Jamestown. Dave Smette will give the invocation, Gary Riffe will lead the songs and Katie Ander
