"Boeing B-17 carries wartime memories for former pilot

Well, if you're the highest bidder at the PNA Auction this Saturday you and a friend can take a ride on a B-17 yourselves! Here's the sort of thing you'll see:

Of course THIS weekend, which would have been yard sale week end, the weather is scheduled to be gorgeous! Ah well, we understand that several folks are gonna have a sale anyway. Enjoy them both in their own time: one in spring and one in fall!

Poisson = Fish

One of our volunteer photographers, Cheryl Klotz, recently did a photo shoot of one of the “Foreign Language Classes for Little Ones” held at the PNA. She got some great photos of the kids and their parents hard at work having fun learning, from the looks of it, French. Here’s a sample of some of the photos Cheryl took that day. Find out more about these classes here.

Thanks to all concerned for helping us photo-document what the PNA is all about. There are several volunteer photographers who are helping to gather photos showing all the aspects of the PNA. I’ll include samples of their work here from time to time.

Meanwhile, you can see more pictures here:

The School of Essential Ingredients

Here's an item you might find interesting by way of Judith Wood, PNA's Volunteer Coordinator:

"This is pretty cool - Erica has been a PNA member and volunteer instructor in our education program and she's published a new book and is doing a reading at Ballard Library. Maybe something for the blog? Sounds like a neat book!"

The book is titled "The School of Essential Ingredients." Follow the link for more information.

For three hours from 6 to 9 p.m., Greenwood Avenue N is being opened up from N 65th to N 87th Street* so that pedestrians and bicyclists can come out to play and explore local businesses. This event builds on the Chamber’s successful monthly art walk Art Up/Open Up. It offers residents a cheap way to do family activities and reconnect with neighbors." More Here.

Here's a list of the Art Walk participants for April 10.

SNOW?!!? April Fool's NOT!!

And I thought I was just kidding in the posts below when I said:

"… the way the weather’s been I wouldn’t be surprised if it snows a few more times between now and then…" (Auction post)


"People got tired of trying to sell old family heirlooms in the rain, sleet and snow." (Garage Sale post)

Have you looked outside!??
