The season of lights are upon us and the Phinney Neighborhood Association has revamped their annual animal winter light display. As they have done in the past, there will be a range of animals throughout the Greenwood and Phinney Ridge (Phinneywood) community. Click here for more information on the history of the lights.
This year there is a more diverse set of animals to represent Phinneywood. While you are strolling through the neighborhood you’ll notice a crow, orca, otter, squirrel, bear, and a wolf. Each animal represents a diverse attribute; they swim, fly, run, and climb. They also stand for qualities the neighborhood strives for. Learn more on the Phinney Neighborhood Center website. So, not every business will have the same one and there is a challenge this year! As you know, during this time of the year bears are usually hibernating—the challenge to you is to find the five different locations the bears are hibernating throughout the neighborhood.
While you are out looking for these five unique bears, be sure to stop by our Greenwood branch, which is a proud participant of the PhinneyWood Winter Lights. We have two different animals up this year: the crow and squirrel! As you read on the PNA website, the crow represents caring for the community and the squirrel represents the ability to problem solve. Not only do these qualities represent Phinneywood, they represent key areas of Verity’s mission, vision, and values. We pride ourselves on servicing the communities we live and work in, while also being there for our members to help with any financial problem they encounter.
Be sure to stop by our Greenwood branch and Phinneywood neighborhood to experience this light display. If you are interested in even more lights, the Woodland Park Zoo has an incredible display of lights that will have you in the holiday spirit for years to come.
