Wanted to make sure you all knew about the newest coffee shop in town. Jumpin’ Jacks Coffee House has been open for a couple of months now, and is located on Main St. in downtown Albemarle (across the street from Starnes and The Boardroom).
Connie and Dale (owners) are awesome folks that you definitely need to meet! Be sure to ask about their story of how JJ’s cam about. PLUS the coffee is great, they sale “Joe’s Donuts” fresh every morning, hand dipped ice cream, and the Baristas are some of the coolest gals you will ever meet! So be sure to stop by Jumpin’ Jacks and tell them I sent you their way! (If Jordan is working, ask her to make you a Liberty Legend espresso shake. So good your tastebuds will literally take out tiny wallets and reimburse you the cost of the drink…)
Also, they are the latest location to have all the 704 information, including car clings. If you STILL don’t have a cling for your car, you can pick one up at JJ’s. Chances are I will be there and can personally apply it for you…

Jennifer and I had the opportunity to share with Centre Pointe Church in Oakboro about 704 a couple Sundays ago. We had a blast and wanted to thank Reese for giving us the chance! Thanks Centre Pointe!

Been hanging out at The Daily Grind Coffee House in Locust again this morning. Valery, the owner, has let us leave a stack of 704 clings in the shop. If you are in need of a cling, and a great cup of coffee, stop by The Daily Grind in Locust for BOTH!!! Only the cling is free, but the coffee is worth every penny, and then some! Go support a great local shop!

Hanging out at the Daily Grind Coffee Shop in Locust today (new Plaza beside Stanly Community Crutchfield campus). I needed a change of scenery while I worked and wanted to learn about the business more as we prepare to open up The Mug Shot next March.
You definitely need to check out this shop and give Valerie some support! It’s a great place with great coffee, tea, and smoothies. Check them out on the web too!

Introducing Phoenix Ramp Park, THE one and only ramp park in Stanly County that will be housed at 704 Student Center. When 704 opens on March 5th of next year, Phoenix will be waiting right there too!
Why Phoenix you ask? Just as the mythical phoenix rose from the ashes, we want to help teenagers rise from the ashes of life. So many are hurting in an infinite amount of ways, and Phoenix is one of many attempts at 704 to build life-changing relationships with teenagers.
We love students and want to give them something excellent. See you next March Phoenix Ramp Park!
