Parkland Village held a photography contest during the summer in which people submitted photos they took in the Parkland Village neighborhoods we serve. The theme of the contest was Beyond Our Gates. The 2023 calendar and notecards are derived from the winning photographs, which were selected by two professional jurors. This is the third year in which we have held contests and created calendars and note cards.
You can view the winning photos here.

THE PURPOSE OF PARKLAND VILLAGE
We are Now Offering Full Array of Volunteer Services
See the list of services below under "What is Parkland Village"! Now we are serving our elderly neighbors and those with disabilities. Get in touch with us at email@example.com 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.
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.
