First of all a big “THANK YOU!” to the San Juan Coun­ty Fair, The San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion, and to every­one who sup­port­ed the Mullis Cen­ter and oth­er local non-prof­its dur­ing the Com­mu­ni­ty Foundation’s 2021 Vir­tu­al Fair Fundrais­er. Thanks to our gen­er­ous donors sup­port we raised $5,520! All mon­ey raised will be used to com­plete the final stages of the Mullis Center’s Green and Clean Capi­tol Improve­ment project*.

The Mullis Cen­ter had hoped to start open­ing up once a week with in-per­son lunch­es this Sep­tem­ber. Sad­ly, this darn virus has dou­bled down and we are back to masks, dis­tanc­ing, and meet­ing out­doors.  To soft­en this dis­ap­point­ment San Juan Coun­ty Senior Nutri­tion Pro­gram part­ners invite island seniors to a Dri­ve-Thru Pic­nic in the Park­ing Lot. Come by and grab a fresh grilled burg­er, Hempler’s hot dog, or veg­an burg­er with pota­to sal­ad, fruit, and a cook­ie ($5.00 sug­gest­ed dona­tion) take-away/pic­nic style.

Also on the autumn cal­en­dar is our elec­tion. The Senior Ser­vices Coun­cil of San Juan Coun­ty, San Juan Dis­trict is seek­ing qual­i­fied can­di­dates to serve on the San Juan Dis­trict Com­mit­tee, also known as the Oper­at­ing Com­mit­tee for the Mullis Com­mu­ni­ty Senior Cen­ter. If you are inter­est­ed in engag­ing with your com­mu­ni­ty in a mean­ing­ful way you may want to go to the Mullis Cen­ter web­site where you will find more infor­ma­tion and the appli­ca­tion. There are mul­ti­ple open­ings with terms last­ing one, two, or three years begin­ning in Novem­ber. Appli­ca­tions are due by Sep­tem­ber 15 and the elec­tion will take place the week of Octo­ber 11.

Sep­tem­ber on the island can be espe­cial­ly beau­ti­ful. We get our fill of apples, plums, and zuc­chi­ni. Enjoy the bounty!
