News From Camp Wanake:

75 Years of Ministry Celebration POSTPONEDIt is with a heavy heart we wish to inform you that the 75 Years of ministry celebration, on September 24th-26th, 2021, has been POSTPONED. This decision has not come easy; however, at Wanake safety is first and we feel that is best for all involved due to the surge of the Delta Variant of COVID-19 and the risk it poses to the people attending. We will be postponing it to around the same time in the Fall of 2022. We will be sure to send out those dates as soon as we know. We are disappointed we will not be able to celebrate 75 Years of Ministry this year. We are encouraged to celebrate with lighter hearts next year, and hope that this will give the opportunity for more people to celebrate with us. We apologize for any inconvenience and we pray that you will join us next year!






NOTE: Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit the Sobering Centers Lorain County location ONLY.




Thanks to a grant from the CARES Act COVID-19 Support Program, Direction Home Aging and Disabilities is able to offer older adults a FREE bundle of (5) $10 vouchers to select local restaurants, including Newt’s Place in Navarre,  Bill and Mary’s Diner in North Canton, The Barn Restaurant in Smithville, and many more (see the updated flyer on the Resources page of our website).

Vouchers are good for to-go, delivery or in-person dining, and must be presented as you check in to the restaurant or as you order your meal.

Here’s how it works:

  • Apply for a bundle of vouchers by calling Direction Home at 877-770-5558 or emailing Monday-Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

  • Screening could take up to three days; please be patient!
  • Bundles will take approximately 10 business days to arrive after your application is approved.

Many of our area churches have monthly dinners that are free and open to the community. They serve as both a way to help someone in need and as a time of fellowship. Many of them offer takeouts so you could even help a shut-in or a neighbor who might enjoy a hot meal. All dinners start at 5:00 PM.
The community dinners follow this schedule every month:

1st Thursday – rotating schedule between Wilmot UMC (103 Milton St., Wilmot), Brewster Friends Church (139 Main St. SW, Brewster) and Newcomer’s Chapel. Go to the Calendar page of our website for the location of each month’s dinner.
3rd Tuesday – Otterbein UMC (6025 Shepler Church Ave. SW, Navarre).
