Another Day with J&J...

While Jamie, Julie and “Production” take a well-deserved summer hiatus, take some time to explore the Another Day with J&J Archives! Have a great summer!

Another Day with J&J” features Brewster’s very own Jamie Fritz and Julie Schmanke (Activities Coordinator and Wellness Specialist, respectively) as they just chat about current events both off and on the Brewster campus as well as important matters such as, what is Dolly Parton up to now?

Our dynamic duo debuted “Another Day with J&J” in April 2020 during COVID when everything was basically shut down. “Another Day” was imagined as a way to help our residents feel connected to each other, which proved to be a great success! A year later (May 2021), COVID seemed to let up and so did J&J… so “Another Day” soon faded away, just like the rest of our fondest memories.


However, our Brewster crusaders once again took the campus by storm in January 2023 by reviving “Another Day with J&J” … and they are still a force to be reckoned with every Monday morning! You just never know what they’ve been up to! You can find all of the “Another Day with J&J” videos at Brewster Living’s Videos on Vimeo!
