We’re conducting a short community survey, and we’d love your input! No matter how (or if) you use the PNA, you are a member of our community and your valuable observations help us chart our course.

If you respond by Sept. 30, you’ll be entered into a drawing for $100 at your choice of Ken’s Market, Greenwood Hardware, Fred Meyer, or Bartell’s if you wish to leave your contact info.

Letter from the Executive Director, Lee Harper

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.

In our nearly 40 years, we’ve grown into a diverse organization providing a broad range of services in five locations.

We are a senior center, an art gallery, a free meal program, a childcare provider, a classroom for lifelong learning, a location for event rentals, a concert hall, a tool lending library, a host of fun events, and so much more.

The PNA is a place to connect, and a source of support and friendship for many different people.

We are always listening to our community, and making adjustments as we go. Every so often we reach out to ask everyone at once: How are we doing? The PNA is embarking on a strategic planning process to guide our next few years and we need YOUR HELP to make sure we continue to steer our path in the right direction.

Whether you are a PNA member or not, regardless of where you live, your age, or your connection to our programs, we want your input.

What does community mean to you? What do you want and need from a community center? How do you connect with the PNA? Which programs add greatest value to our neighborhood? There are several opportunities to share your answers to our questions.

  • First, fill out our online survey during the month of September (paper copies available at the Phinney Center and Greenwood Senior Center).  Encourage your friends, neighbors, family members, or co-workers to complete the survey too. As an additional thank you for filling out our survey before the deadline of Sept. 30, you may choose to be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card to your choice of Greenwood Hardware, Ken’s Market, Fred Meyer, or Bartell’s!
  • Second, let us know if you’d be interested in participating in a focused conversation with a small group of other community members.
  • Third, as executive director of the PNA, I have an open-door policy and would be happy to meet with you to delve more deeply into questions of where the PNA is heading next.

We look forward to hearing from the WHOLE community, and putting your ideas to work as we set our course for the next few years.
