What YOU Can Do For Our Newsletter

PNA Village Connections newslettersAre you interested in writing, editing, desktop publishing, or even seeing your writing featured on our blog? If so, we’d love to hear from you!

You can help your PNA Village Connections newsletter in any of the following ways:

  • Join us! The newsletter committee meets just four times per year for a planning session. You choose what you’d like to write and/or what tasks you can do. (You’ll need access to a reliable computer and the Internet, as this is the committee’s primary mode of communication.)
  • Suggest ideas or information you’d like to see covered in our newsletter and/or blog.
  • Write! We’re always looking for new topics to cover.
  • Take photos! Take photos of Village events and activities.
  • Help us mail the newsletter. We always can use help folding and preparing the newsletter for mailing.
  • Provide technical help. Two of our prime needs right now are for a person comfortable doing page layout for the printed version of the newsletter (using InDesign, Publisher or Word) as well as a person comfortable preparing the newsletter for email distribution using Vertical Response.

If any of these things sound interesting to you, please contact the Village office at 206-789-1217.

About Those Ads

See an Ad you don't like? Find out what to do about it.

We apologize. At least one of our members got an unwanted political advertisement at the end of our Monday 9/12 blog post “A Chapter a Day.”

Ads sometimes appear at the bottom of our blog posts because of our free plan plan agreement with WordPress.com; in exchange for ads, we get the blog space free of charge. We did not expect that political ads would be used in this space, but we do not control the ads placed on WordPress.com. (To read more about WordPress.com’s ad policy, please see: https://wordpress.com/about-these-ads/).

Please email Rianan@phinneycenter.org if you have questions or concerns.

The good news is that the PNA Village Blog will soon move to a brand-new PNA Village website, which will be ad-free. Stay tuned for details!

Welcome to PNA Village Connections

By Janice Dilworth

Welcome to the launch of the PNA Village Blog and our upcoming quarterly newsletter, “PNA Village Connections”. This blog and newsletter is the result of collaboration between me, as the staff person of the PNA Village, and three Village volunteers, Alyssa McFarland, Liz Bjorkman and L. McLean.

The target audience is you, PNA Village members, volunteers, and businesses.

Like everything else in the PNA Village, the blog and newsletter will evolve, based on input from you and on the work of our volunteers.

My question to you is: What do you want to see in this blog? What would be of interest to you?

Our goal is to provide a place to start a dialogue which reflects the varied voices and perspectives of the people who have come together to create this intentional community.

Please take a moment sign up for weekly updates from your fellow members, volunteers and staff of the PNA Village.  Everyone is welcome to contribute! And watch for your copy of “PNA Village Connections”.

Please send your ideas, comments, and suggestions to: village@phinneycenter.org
