Summer Potluck & BBQ

Join us this Sunday!

PNA Village Summer Potluck & BBQ
Sunday, August 13
1 – 3 PM
Ida Culver House Ravenna
(2315 NE 65th Street)

This is a favorite Village summer event, sponsored by our partner ERA Living. Please bring a friend and introduce them to the Village…this is a family friendly event and kids and grand kids are welcome!

Please consider bringing a dish to share, according to the first letter of your last name:

A – F:  Salad or side dish

G – O:  Salad or side Dish (you were originally assigned meat to grill but we’ve had a gracious donation from Safeway!)

P – Z:  Dessert

If you would prefer, you may donate money that will be used to purchase food. $10 is suggested. ERA Living will provide coffee, lemonade, and ice cream.

We will also have a new member orientation before the potluck, at noon. If you are a new member, or if you are bringing a friend who might like to learn more, please consider attending!

Also, due to the smoke in our air over the last week, we have made arrangements with Ida Culver to have some tables and chairs inside. However, the forecast shows that she smoke should clear in a few days so hopefully it won’t be an issue.

Full Members, please let the Village know as soon as possible if you need a ride to the orientation and/or potluck. Call us at (206) 789-1217 or email

Your RSVP is appreciated but not required. We hope to see you on Sunday!

…Our summer BBQ was just right!

After weeks of unusually warm weather in Seattle, PNA Village members and volunteers enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon BBQ in the gardens of Ida Culver House Ravenna.

Thanks to everyone who made our summer social event memorable and shared good food and good company! Special thanks to our hosts Era Living for providing a beautiful setting and gracious staff.

Here are some highlights from the afternoon:
