Island Senior: Spring Stirrings at the Mullis Center

Posted April 2, 2022 at 11:19 am by

Spring is here and along with the rain, sun­shine, and tulips, indoor activ­i­ties are cau­tious­ly return­ing to the Mullis Cen­ter. While the Mullis Cen­ter is not quite ready to resume com­mu­ni­ty lunch­es, we are pleased to invite you to join us as in-per­son activ­i­ties begin to open up.

The Mullis Cen­ter rec­om­mends that activ­i­ty atten­dees be vac­ci­nat­ed and boost­ed. At this moment mask­ing require­ments remain in place but will be sub­ject to change. We serve a vul­ner­a­ble pop­u­la­tion and con­tin­ue to lean towards caution.

Besides ongo­ing ser­vices like foot care, mobil­i­ty equip­ment loans, online yoga and bal­ance class­es, and our online/offline book club (the book club has exper­i­ment­ed with par­tial in per­son, par­tial Zoom meet­ings), the Mullis Center’s paint­ing and quilt­ing groups will now be meet­ing again in person.

The Mullis Cen­ter Paint­ing Group will meet week­ly from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednes­days. Masks are required. The Mullis Cen­ter Quilt­ing Group will meet week­ly from 3 to 4:30 pm on Wednes­days. Masks will be required inside. (Our hearty quil­ters have been known to meet outdoors.)

After a long pan­dem­ic our After­noon Socials on Mon­days and Wednes­days between 1 and 3 pm may be just the tick­et for eas­ing back into soci­ety. You are encour­aged to bring a friend to chat, work on craft projects, work on puz­zles, and play games. Backgam­mon, chess, crib­bage, and Jen­ga are avail­able or bring your own game if you wish. If you need trans­porta­tion call IslandRides at 360–298-6108.

On April 2, Peace Island Vol­un­teers will be at the Mullis Cen­ter sell­ing their stu­pen­dous East­er Bas­kets from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Plan to come ear­ly; those bas­kets go fast! Bring your cam­era. Rumor has it the East­er Bun­ny may make an appearance.

To keep up with San Juan Island’s Gar­den Club please check their web­site. The Gar­den Club is not specif­i­cal­ly a Mullis Cen­ter group but will be meet­ing in the Mullis Cen­ter Craft Room at 1 p.m. on Tues­day, April 5. The guest speak­er will be Lori Ann David of Auro­ra Farms.

Final­ly, Fri­day Bin­go is back! (That’s win­ner Judy McRae pic­tured above.) Join us Fri­day, April 8 at 1 p.m. for a plan­ning meet­ing if you would like to help coor­di­nate and/or vol­un­teer for month­ly bin­go. Then come and play bin­go on Fri­day, April 22. Please RSVP by call­ing 360–370-7520 or email info@mulliscenter.org to con­tact Anna so we know how many to plan for.

Hope to see you soon!
