    Would you like a community woodshop?

    PNA is considering the idea of opening a community woodshop program on the Phinney Center campus.

    Your voice is important! Please take our community survey.

    Community Begins Here. At the heart of everything we do at the Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) are the people of PhinneyWood, this diverse collection of individuals and families who come here to nurture, work, learn, play, and be together.

The Gathering Place group and staff team decided to take it further—to make the film widely available to anyone online for free, to stream or download. ...

    Cheers to you and the favorite beers (and ciders)!

    The PNA Summer Beer Tastes was a success for year 13! Ticket sales were record-breaking, the weather was perfect, the brews were delicious (and many of them special for the event!), and the mood was jovial. We were tickled to see so many Hawaiian shirts and beachy outfits, adding to the festiveness of the afternoon. It was extra fun that brewers also got into it by bringing fun (and yummy!) tropical-flavored beers and decorating themselves and their stations. And the crowd favorites were......
