  • We asked…we listened: PNA looks to the future with help from community survey

    In the fall, we asked the community to contribute to our strategic planning process, and we were blown away by the response. Over 900 people took the time to share their thoughts through our online survey and in-person focus groups. Thank you to everyone who participated! We incorporated your input as we developed the Phinney Neighborhood Association’s Strategic Priorities for the next three years (2019–2021). These priorities reflect the current values that we commit to placing at the forefront of our decision making. Read more

  • Remembering what matters: A story of kindness in Greenwood

A wave...“Come on in.” Nathan Vass drives a bus for Seattle Metro for the sheer joy of it, and has become something of a local celebrity for his attitude ... At the Greenwood Senior Center, Erika Merz leads The Gathering Place, an enrichment program for people with early stage memory loss (ESML). To borrow Nathan’s words, she is “a radiant ball of kind, considerate, controlled positive energy.” ...

However, more than anything it speaks to hope. To the benefits of patience, kindness, and an open mind. The process of creating the film, however, caused her a bit of a headache. Or it did, until Nathan came along. Read more
