Adventure Travel Series with Debbi and Jay Perkul
Oct 2 @ 6:30 pm – Nov 13 @ 7:30 pm
Jay and Debbi did what many people only dream about: They quit their jobs, sold their cars, closed up their house, and left for a nine-month, independent, around the world journey. In this four-part series, you will learn how they embarked on an adventure of a lifetime – why and where they went, what they did, the people they met, and the misadventures they had. If Jay and Debbi, two regular people, can make this happen, you can too. Join them to learn about their travel adventures.
*If you sign up for all four sessions you will receive a $15 Appalachian Outfitters gift card at the end of the series on November 13th*
2018 Haven of Rest Ministries Coat Drive
Oct 12 – Nov 30 all-day
We’re collecting coats for the Haven of Rest Ministries in Akron, to help those less fortunate this winter. Haven of Rest Ministries is the largest private social service organization in the Summit, Medina, Portage, Stark, Tuscarawas, Wayne, Holmes Counties area. Please help us give back to those in our region that are less fortunate. Bring in your CLEAN, gently used winter coat, and receive a coupon for 15% off any regularly priced in-stock clothing item. Help us to reach our goal of 150 coats by November 30, 2018.


Please note: While we are glad to accept your gently used hoodies, fleeces, and other light weight jackets, these items do not qualify for the 15% coupon. Heavier, gently used, warm winter coats will help the most during the harsh winter weather.
