PNA Village — Aging In Place Visioning Workshop

“Villages” are membership-driven organizations that coordinate access to affordable services including transportation, health and wellness programs, home repairs, social and educational activities, and other day-to-day needs enabling individuals to remain active, independent and civically connected to their communities throughout the aging process. They are community based organizations that address the rapidly growing demand among elderly to remain socially connected and fulfill their needs related to aging in a setting of their choice.

You may have already attended a Village informational meeting and know quite a good deal about the Village. You most likely have your own reasons for your interest in the Village and are ready to begin planning for the years ahead. For these reasons, we want to invite you a PNA Village Leadership Visioning Meeting on Saturday, March 20th, from 9am to 12pm at the Greenwood Senior Center. We need your participation and input, coming from your personal experiences, your creativity and your diverse interest to help outline the process to develop the structure and the concept of our unique Village. This will be an interactive opportunity to participate in the beginning conversation of how you want the Village to look and to be. By coming to this meeting you will directly have a hand in a program that will help to ensure your health and well-being long into your life.

If you are interested in participating in this visioning process, please RSVP to Marianne Rupp at, 206-297-0875, by March 15th. The Greenwood Senior Center is located at 525 N. 85th Street in Greenwood.
