Living in Fair Haven: "In a sweet spot" for community activist

Everybody in CSNA community knows Ken Janke and how inspiring he can be - check out a New Haven Independent article telling the story of The Grove - Ken's new initiative. After taking over Fair Haven Ken is going to take over the entire New Haven.

"...Janke illustrated some of his points with examples from his own life. Six years ago, the now 45-year-old had been living in Dallas when he felt called to move to New Haven, buy a house in Fair Haven, and raise his children in “the inner city,” he said. That journey required him to overcome some significant challenges and conflicts.

“Moving my wife to New Haven and buying a house without her seeing it created a conflict,” he said.

Janke was chasing his dream, and it’s paid off. “I am in my sweet spot right now,” he said...."

I have moved to Fair Haven three years ago and became a strong local patriot, nothing like taking a walk along the Quinnipiac River or even better kayaking there. Ken's story inspired me to ask myself a question: am I in my sweet spot living in Fair Haven? Are you? Share you thoughts in comments, please...
