Thursday, August 15, 10 AM – noon
Saturday, September 28, 10 AM – noon

Would you like to help your neighbors remain in their homes and stay active in their community as they age? PNA Village volunteers help with rides, help in and around the home, and provide social interaction.  To attend the next Village volunteer training, contact us at 206-789-1217 or [email protected].  All Village volunteer trainings are held at the Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N 85th Street.

Village at the Greenwood Seafair Parade

Wednesday, July 24
Meet up at the Stage Door Café, 5 PM
Parade, 6 – 8 PM

Come on out and enjoy the parade with other Village volunteers and members.  We will meet up at the Stage Door Café at 5 PM before heading out to view the parade at 6 PM.  The Village will have a reserved spot to view the parade, right in front of Bartell Drug.  Limited parking will be available in the Bartell lot, but you will need to obtain a pass from Village staff.  Parking is also available at the Greenwood Senior Center. Please RSVP if you’d like to attend the parade, and if you’ll join us at the Stage Door Café beforehand.  The Stage Door Café is located beside the Taproot Theatre at 208 N 85th Street.  It’ll be a half-block walk from there to our parade viewing spot.  You will need to provide your own chair to sit on at the parade. If at all possible, please deliver your foldable camp chairs to the Village office by 5 PM on Tuesday, July 23.  This will help us reserve space.  If you’re unable, then just bring them with you to the parade.  Remember, if you’re a full member, you can request a ride!  Please RSVP to [email protected] or 206-789-1217.

Village Summer BBQ and Potluck

Sunday, July 28, 1 – 3 PM
Ida Culver House Broadview, 12505 Greenwood Ave N

This is one event you don’t want to miss!  Join other Villagers for some good food, fun, and (hopefully) sunshine! This is a potluck so, if you are able, please bring a salad or side dish to share.  ERA living is graciously providing hamburgers (both meat and veggie), drinks, and dessert!  Valet parking will be provided.  If you’re a full member, please let us know if you’d like a ride.  As always, your RSVP is appreciated but not required at 206-789-1217 or [email protected].

Village Committee Speed Dating

Thursday, August 1, 2 – 3:30 PM
Phinney Center Blue Building, top floor room 5, 6532 Phinney Ave N

Join us for wine, cheese, and other refreshments while you meet and mingle with other folks from your Village.  You’ll learn about Village committees that you can become involved in.  Committees are the backbone of our Village and we need your help to keep things running smoothly.  Come on out and learn how you can participate.  You’re attendance does not commit you to joining a committee.  Please come out, learn more, meet new people, and have fun! Please RSVP to [email protected] or 206-789-1217.

Village Volunteer Training:  Hoarding, When Collecting Goes Bad

Thursday, September 12, 3 – 5 PM
Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave N

This class will cover the causes and common traits of hoarding. In addition, we will explore the practical approaches to use with people who hoard. There are many misconceptions about hoarding and the instructor will clear those up by using research based information.

Instructor: Karen Kent is a licensed mental health counselor whose specialty has been working with older adults. She has worked with people who hoard for 20 years.

This training is for approved Village volunteers.  Your RSVP is appreciated but not required at [email protected] or 206-789-1217.
