2014 Annual Appeal

As we look back on all of our events and programs in the past year, the PCA is very proud of what we were able to accomplish with our new Executive Director Amber Small. But in order to continue our work in the community, we need your support; and one of the most impactful ways you can help is by making a donation to our annual appeal.  So if you have ever enjoyed one of our many community events, sent your children to learn at our Summer Arts Program, or if you simply appreciate being part of a community that cares for its neighbors, please consider making a year-end gift to the PCA. Thank you for your support.

Parkside Holiday Decorating Contest

New this year, the Parkside Community Association will host a holiday decorating contest in the neighborhood! As our luminaries were rained out last year, we thought this would be a nice “weatherproof” way for us to spread some holiday cheer. The submission deadline has now passed, with online voting and judging to be completed by Friday, December 19th. 
As part of this event, we are inviting neighbors to walk through the community and check out everyone's holiday lights on the evening of Saturday, December 20th. We will also hold a brief awards presentation outdoors at 6pm in front of the Church of the Good Shepherd at 96 Jewett Parkway.
