  • Looking back and moving forward {video}

    Thank you for your support of the PNA and your involvement with us and the community; we hope you are finding peace and health as this year winds down. 2020 has been a hard year - that goes without saying. But the PNA is resilient and we’ve had so many opportunities this year to give to, receive from, and partner with our community... We hear time and time again how people lean on us for support, stability, essential services, and community celebrations. Right now, a lot is up in the air. We hope it brings comfort to know that our buildings and the people in them (or from home and on Zoom) are still humming away and finding new ways to do this work. In a 2 minute video, hear from some of our staff, volunteers, and members of our business community about what’s been happening around the PNA. And we hope you'll support our work for the year to come....

  • 2020’s 40th Annual Winter Festival a “virtual” success!

    2020’s 40th Annual Winter Festival a “virtual” success!

    Thank you to all who visited and shopped the PNA’s 40th Annual Winter Festival & Crafts Fair – the Virtual Experience – and to the fabulous artists and makers who participated. The website saw thousands of visitors over the weekend—just like our in-person fair does. (Okay, so it wasn’t quite the same, but at least folks didn’t have to stand in line or elbow through the crowd!) We are thrilled to be able to connect local artists and small businesses with the community. So although the show’s over, we are leaving up the website so that you can still check out the makers and shop with them –  even when the holidays have come and gone....

    You may be used to receiving our quarterly Review newspaper in the mail if you live in Phinney Ridge or Greenwood or if you’re a PNA member.

    Save the date to support local seniors: The Power of Community

    It's the ninth year of our Power of Community event! Usually, we meet for breakfast in the fall, hear an inspiring speaker or two, and learn about what's new and important in senior programs. Of course, we can't enjoy our coffee in the same room this year, but we can still get together virtually and celebrate and support the work of the Greenwood Senior Center, the PNA Village, our memory loss programs, and caregiver supports.  Join us on Thursday, October 15, 12-1 pm (you don't have to get up early this year!) for this Zoom event featuring the theme "Alone Together."...

  • A message from the PNA Board President, Amanda Froh

    Last night the PNA Board and leadership staff engaged in a valuable conversation with former PNA Executive Director Dar'Nesha Weary, ably facilitated by Paul Finley and Mary Holscher of the Breaking White Silence Affinity Group. We listened and learned first-hand about the structural racism that Dar'Nesha endured and how she was harmed while she worked at PNA, a story she has already shared in several different community forums. We apologized to her, in many different ways and through many different voices, for our individual and collective roles in perpetuating that system. We expressed heartfelt regret that she suffered as a result. We had the opportunity to ask questions and to hear Dar'Nesha's thoughts regarding actions we can take now to move the PNA toward antiracism as an organization....
