Thank you to all those who responded to our survey with honest feedback. This is what you said.

Overall Rating: 4.33

General Stats

100% are happy with the frequency of the newsletter at once a week.

90% thought the length of the newsletter was Just Right! 10% said it was too short.

You rated the design of the Powderhorn Press 50/50 between 4 and 5.

2/3 of you are enjoying "Coffee Break" jigsaw puzzles!  

I'm so glad the length and frequency of the Powderhorn Press fits your needs! We hope to improve "Coffee Break" by including additional features listed below. We are both humbled and motivated by the overall rating you gave Powderhorn Press. Change creates opportunities for improvement, and we know now more than ever before what our beloved readers (you) are looking for!

10% Other

This is so helpful to know. We will continue to meet your needs and expectations around PPNA Hosted Events and we are thrilled at the opportunity for growth in terms of our content! We have considered doing some Community Spotlights around local community members and businesses within Powderhorn. If you have someone in mind to spotlight, please email us at with the subject line, "Community Spotlight". Moving forward, I will be more mindful to include community resources and local news/policy changes that are relevant to Powderhorn!

You explicitly requested:

A section on various healing modalities

Events focused on helping our neighborhood

As a practicing meditator, I love the idea of including healing modalities in the newsletter! We also want to hear from you if you have any healing resources to share with the rest of the community. Please submit your resources in the Coffee Break Submission Form.

We will keep a lookout for events focused on helping our neighborhood. We admired how so many of you stepped up to be stewards for the Community Garden in Powderhorn. The collective compassion and care from our vibrant community continues to inspire us every day. #PowderhornPride

Potential Coffee Break Features:

66.7% selected recipes
