On Mon­day I had lunch at the Mullis Cen­ter. Lunch­es are served on Mon­days and Thurs­days at 11:45. It’s an inex­pen­sive hot meal, $5 for seniors $6 for every­one else (all are wel­come), and it comes with a choice of bev­er­ages, sal­ad, and desert. On the menu Mon­day was Hun­gar­i­an goulash over noo­dles, a good meal for a late Novem­ber day.

I got to the Mullis Cen­ter just in time to see the kitchen crew serv­ing up “meals on wheels” to be deliv­ered to home­bound Islanders in need of a pre­pared meal. If you or some­one you know is unable to get out, request­ing this ser­vice (call the Mullis Cen­ter at 378‑2677) may help. Frozen meals are also avail­able on request and dona­tions are appre­ci­at­ed to help cov­er the cost.

Mon­day hap­pened to be the month­ly birth­day lunch in cel­e­bra­tion of all Novem­ber birth­days. Birth­day lunch is usu­al­ly cel­e­brat­ed on the last Thurs­day of the month but because Thurs­day was Thanks­giv­ing… we got cake on Mon­day. The cake is thanks to Chris Luma who pur­chas­es cakes at Cost­co and deliv­ers them to The Mullis Cen­ter as a dona­tion each month. Thank you Chris! I had the choco­late and boy was it tasty.

Lunch at the Mullis Cen­ter is a fun socia­ble way to share a good meal, vis­it a few old timers (I’m includ­ing myself in that cat­e­go­ry) or meet some new peo­ple. My hand­some Uncle Wal­ly met his third wife at these lunch­es. Plus there is the raf­fle run by garage sale maven Pat Ball. For only 50 cents you can buy a raf­fle tick­et and when your tick­et num­ber is called, choose from a table of trea­sures, some donat­ed oth­ers gath­ered by Pat. With my lucky tick­et on Mon­day I went home with the most adorable Ted­dy Bear!

Mullis Cen­ter lunch menus are post­ed in the Senior Sig­nal newslet­ter and also on the San Juan Cal­en­dar. To see more pho­tos from Mon­day’s lunch link to The Mullis Cen­ter Face­book Page.
