The month of May is a busy one with lots of events, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and, for Everett, Cruzin’ to Colby will be back! This is a great community event that attracts thousands of people throughout the Puget Sound. A little bit about the group: The Seattle Rod—Tiques are a Northwest car enthusiasts’ car club. Although the name is Seattle, most of the members live in Snohomish and Skagit counties. The club was organized in the l950’s; however, in 1979, it was incorporated as a Washington State Non- Profit Corporation. The club’s mission: Promote family fun; community awareness by raising funds for various charities; and car and driving safety. See you there Memorial Day Weekend. . . Andrea Annual Election of PGNA Officers During this month’s meeting We will hold election for all PGNA officers. Together they form our executive board which meets monthly to work on meeting agendas and other PGNA activities. If you are interested in becoming a member of the board, come to the May meeting and let us know. We’d love to have you. Being a board member is a good way to get involved in the neighborhood and need not be a huge time commitment.

For six years hundreds of staff from agencies and businesses, along with hundreds of community volunteers, have made a huge impact. This year the event takes place at Evergreen Middle School, 7621 Beverly Lane, on Thursday, July 9, from 9 AM — 3 PM. Last year approximately 1300 people were helped. Services and items made available included: medical care, dental care, foot care, DSHS eligibility screening, Social Security eligibility screening, housing information, vision screening and eyeglass vouchers, pet care, haircuts, mental health assessment and brief counseling, substance abuse screening, hearing screening and assistance with hearing aids, hepatitis testing and vaccinations, HIV/ AIDS testing, homeless veteran outreach, children’s books, hot meals, and backpacks filled with toiletries. This last item is where we come in. PGNA, along with others, will be collecting small backpacks (daypacks) at our May and June meetings. How you can help: Find a small backpack (can be brand new or gently used). Then purchase in normal size containers: 1 - body lotion bottle 1 - body wash bottle 1 - shampoo bottle 1 - toothbrush package 1 - toothpaste tube Place these 5 items in a one-gallon zip—lock bag.
