PNA’s Ann Bowden retiring to be full-time grandma

June 2nd, 2014 · Comments

Ann Bowden, the Phinney Neighborhood Association’s development director, is retiring at the end of this week to spend more time with her grandkids. She has worked at the PNA in various roles for the past 27 years.

More than 100 people packed a retirement party in her honor Saturday night, where she was showered with gifts, including a model of the PNA’s Blue Building, a lifetime ticket to the annual Wine Taste, and a trip to Puerta Vallarta from Ron Lewis (below front, with back to camera) and his wife Robyn, the former owners of Greenwood Hardware, and Terry Heimen and Roger Aase, owners of Metropolis.
