10/26-11-30: Sadly, Hunger Goblin' won't be an event of trick-or-treating this year due to COVID, but the Food Drive portion WILL stay alive to support FamilyWorks' Kids' Power Pack Program. Find decorated donation boxes at businesses throughout the community to collect healthy, non-perishable, kid-friendly items to support their nutritional needs as they navigate the wonders of online schooling at home.
Through 12/23 - Let’s fill stockings with joy! Our annual Giving Tree (and tags) are virtual this year. Our partners are still distributing toys, clothing, and other requested items to the kids and families they serve. Especially in these challenging times, we’re excited to be able to help more than 400 people in need receive a little comfort and joy this holiday season.
Join us for this reading and facilitated discussion exploring The Elderwise Way: A Different Approach to Life with Dementia. In this new book, the underpinnings of the Elderwise philosophy are explained, along with the practical implications of this Seattle-based enrichment program for those providing care for loved ones with dementia.
Fri-Sun, 12/4-6. Hop online and support your favorite vendors and some new ones too! As usual, the show will be curated, so you'll find the same unique and wonderful selection of items at your fingertips that you are used to
discovering at the live event.
Fri, 12/4. GloCone 2.0 will be better than ever this year! You can watch it be lit from your living room on PNA's Facebook page and YouTube channel-- featuring a brief history of the old GloCone and an introduction to the new GloCone before the GloCone is officially lit up and “performs” in sync with a holiday tune.
Sat. 12/5. The tradition of the Holiday Bookfest continues, with a program of online readings from Jess Walter, Kira Jane Buxton, Donna Miscolta, and Erica Bauermeister. As in previous years, when we've held our bookfest at the Phinney Center, Phinney Books will be selling signed copies of their books, as well as books from more than a dozen other local writers. Please join us online and continue our local tradition!
Wed. 12/9. Join PNA Village staff, members, and volunteers as we discuss Village membership during COVID-19. Learn how the program has changed, what has stayed the same, and the many new opportunities which help members stay connected, supported, and engaged in the community.
We will create a decorated jar for 2021, in order to hold a year’s worth of daily notes of gratitude. This is a lovely tradition with strong scientific research to back up its positive effects on mental and physical health.
Fri. 12/25. Join Cecily and Carin for a gathering on Christmas Day with music and stories. Carin and Cecily have been doing a Christmas Day meal for 15 years. We aren’t able to do that this year, but we can still share in the holiday spirit together once again.
