Shipley Center Trip News & Notes: January 2021

Happy New Year, Shipley Travelers!

As the days begin to get longer, I hope you will find even more productive things to do!

Virtual Theatre: For those of you who like to use the computer, I am going to list a few websites that will take you to some of our well-known theatres: Jewel Box, in PoulsboTacoma Musical Theatre and our own , Olympic Theatre Arts, here in Sequim. Each of these has entertainment available online, so if you go to their website, you may find something streaming, or a show coming up on your screen. Some require a small payment, but you might enjoy it!

OTA: I went to the Olympic Theatre Arts site and found it easy to use.! They have Old Time Radio Shows available, and there is no charge (of course, it would be great to leave a donation!). You can click on Fibber McGee and Molly; there are several episodes you can watch or listen to. Phone: 360.683.7326

Passports: On a different note, since we are not traveling right now, is your passport up to date? This is a great time to send for your new one! If you need help finding out where to find passport information or have your passport picture taken, please email or call.

Walking is Good for You? Have you been taking walks? Even in the rain, you can do it! Remember, when we can take our Shipley bus out again, you will probably have to do some walking, whether at a mall or on a trail or at a garden. (I would love to see the rhodies in bloom this year!); so, keep yourself moving!

Memories: Have you been on an international trip with Shipley Center? Well, think back on that trip, take a look at your pictures; wear your “travel” outfit; fix a similar meal like the one you had in Portugal, or Scotland, or even Egypt. Yes, call it a “play day”!
