    Calling all new PhinneyWood pets!

    Are you a pet who became a new member of a Phinney-Greenwood household in the past year? We want to hear from your pet parent!  We are writing an article for the PNA's Review newspaper about pets adopted or acquired during the pandemic and we have a short survey for folks who have a new furry, feathered, or scaly friend! There's even an option to upload a photo, which means you might even get to see your cute self in print! So, please go ask your human to help out the PNA and take five minutes to answer some easy questions by April 15 about their favorite topic -- you!  ...

    Members Make Us…

    This month, we're launching our annual PNA Membership Campaign to show our appreciation for our incredible members, and to (hopefully) engage new folks to join.

    Feeling isolated? PNA Village can help

    The PNA Village program has been supporting our older neighbors since 2012, and amidst the pandemic, is providing essential services to keep Village members connected to the community and safe at home. As we enter winter, we are increasingly concerned—not about how people will get their groceries or prescriptions; we’ve got that figured out—but how people will get through these darker days while coping with isolation. The Village now has a free option called “Friend of the Village” specifically for anyone who is struggling with isolation but may not need other volunteer services at this time. Membership includes access to all Village online events and activities, weekly check-in calls, outdoor distanced visits, and a growing list of ways to connect neighbor to neighbor....
