Journal Java Journeys: The Schurmans and their dogs

LANSING, Ill. (May 12, 2023) – Dave and Janice Schurman are active participants in our Lansing Journal Journeys feature, so it’s not surprising that they would be among the first to submit a Journal Java Journeys photo. And it’s not surprising that they would manage to get the Journal Java Chip poster AND the Journal Java Chip ice cream in their photo!

“Well, you know us and our love of The Journal,” wrote Dave Schurman, “so how could we not try your flavor of ice cream on a beautiful Thursday evening? Janice and I took our two dogs Sage and Trooper, along with our foster dog Tino, for a walk to Gayety’s just to try out the Journal Java Chip (which is quite good).” (Photo: Dave Schurman)

Thank you, Schurman Family!

Anytime you buy Journal Java Chip at Gayety’s Ice Cream, they will donate a portion of the proceeds to The Lansing Journal. It’s a delicious way to support two local businesses.
