07/05/2009: "Island Ala Carte"
Island ala Carte is the new coupon book created by the Mullis Community Senior Center and now available. The book features discounts and specials at over 140 merchants on San Juan Island. It is divided into sections featuring food, lodging, services, retail, beauty, and things to do. It sells for $29.92, with proceeds going to the Mullis Center.
The book may be purchased at the picnic following the fourth of July parade on Saturday, and at the Pancake Breakfast at the Mullis center on Sunday.
It will be available on a regular basis at Island Wools, the Souvenir Store, and the Mullis Center.
Virginia Otto, who developed the book, reminds people that the book is for everyone on the island. It is not just for seniors. Otto stated, “This is a win-win situation for everyone.
The businesses get customers and the customers get discounts. And the sale of the book will benefit the Mullis Center.”
