THE PURPOSE OF PARKLAND VILLAGE
Full "Launch" of Volunteer Services
As of August 4, we are offering the full array of volunteer services, including all the services we mention below under "What is Parkland Village"! It took a lot of work by a number of people for us to get to this point. We have been organizing for more than four years, and we were set back by the pandemic. Now we are ready to serve our elderly neighbors and those with disabilities. Get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to become a member of Parkland Village, become a Parkland Village volunteer, or both.
People will need to become Parkland Village members to receive services. However, people can become members to support the Village, whether or not they currently need services. Members must live in the service area (primarily the Parkland Hills and Southeast Heights neighborhoods) or, on a case-by-case basis, close to the boundaries of the service area. The annual dues are $150 for an individual and $200 for a household. However, financial assistance is available for those who cannot afford the regular dues. For the safety of members and volunteers, both must be fully vaccinated and have received at least one booster. Both must follow Parkland Village Covid protocols. You can find the membership handbook here and the membership registration form here.
Informational Zoom Forum
We will be holding an informational Zoom forum on Tuesday, August 23, from 5:00 to 6:00 PM for people to ask questions about the Village, memberships, and volunteer services. For more information on the forum, click here.
Parkland Village has 2022 note cards for sale. The images in the note cards are based on a photography contest we held in 2021. The theme was Gates, Walls and Doors of Parkland Village. You can find the winning photos and photographers by clicking here. You can order cards by clicking here.
The New Mexico Villages Network held a Zoom forum in July on the End of Life Options Act, which was recently passed by the New Mexico legislature and signed by our governor. It gives terminally ill people who have mental capacity to choose a legal means to end their lives with choice and dignity.

While our in-person activities are almost entirely on hold during the Covid-19 pandemic and the time frame for the start of the full array of services is delayed, we continue to organize and plan to organize online events of interest to residents.
