Greetings from the Parkside Community Association,
We hope this finds you both healthy and safe. Thank you for your past support. It is only through the generous efforts of our members that the PCA can continue to pursue its mission to advocate, communicate, and act on behalf of our Parkside neighborhood.
The PCA serves as the voice of a diverse community and provides leadership to promote a safe, vibrant and historic neighborhood. By communicating residents’ concerns and encouraging business development, the PCA helps to foster neighborhood revitalization, beautification and sustainability.
The PCA has a long history of neighbors helping neighbors. A great example of this is the PCA’s Snow Angels. PCA Snow Angels are neighborhood volunteers who help other neighbors with snow removal, enabling residents to remain in their homes. We are happy to say that this winter will be the seventh year for the PCA Snow Angels. There is always room for more volunteers, so please reach out to our office for more information!!
This year the PCA was able to get back to doing many of the things it does best: community activities. We had the 2nd Annual Tour of Trees throughout the neighborhood and were happy to again welcome the community to attend Movies in the Meadow each August. Most rewarding of this year’s activities was being able to reinstitute the Annual Halloween Party, held at our special neighbor, The Church of the Good Shepherd. It was wonderful to welcome so many children to the party and see how much they and their families enjoyed themselves.
This is just a small sample of what the PCA accomplished in 2022. To be able to continue to offer these programs and neighborhood support, we need your help. The PCA is no different than other not-for-profits in experiencing reduced funding sources, and we all the more have to rely on membership dues and the annual appeal.
Would you please consider contributing to the PCA’s Annual Appeal? Do you know that you can also donate to the PCA via SEFA or other workplace incentive programs? Please contact our office for more information. Of course, we’d also love for you to become a PCA community member, renew or upgrade your membership level, sponsor an event, or even consider serving on our board or a committee…but please do consider contributing.
Sincerely, The PCA Board of Directors
