When does a neighborhood become a community? Through connections between its residents! Join us for Community Conversations, a HCCA-sponsored opportunity to talk with and get to know your fellow denizens of Haw Creek. This is a fun and casual event, open to any adult who lives in the Haw Creek Valley. All you need to bring is curiosity about your fellow residents and a willingness to share your own story with others.
The next conversation event takes place at the Haw Creek Commons (basement of the Bethesda United Methodist Church, 315 OHC Rd)) from 7:00-9:00 on Tuesday, September 27th. We hope you join us to meet new people and potential friends. More details? Contact Rick Fornoff at firstname.lastname@example.org

Join us for a fun and informative invasive plant educational session and work day in Haw Creek Park. We’re looking for 30 volunteers to help remove the “kudzu curtains” that have taken over trees and shrubs along Avon Road, along with invasives like English ivy and bittersweet that are creeping into the walking trails.
Many Haw Creek homeowners are faced with the same predicament—fast-growing invasives from other parts of the world have settled in at our doorsteps and are choking out our native vegetation. As good stewards of our personal properties, and of our community as a whole, we will all benefit from this educational/experiential workshop offered by Asheville GreenWorks on Saturday, October 8, 10 am to noon.
GreenWorks will provide hands-on instruction, tools, safety gear to remove invasive plants including: multiflora rose, privet, bittersweet, english ivy and kudzu. Please bring gloves and your water bottle. We will be moving around the wooded areas so long sleeves and closed-toed shoes are recommended.
Working together again, the Haw Creek Community Association and Evergreen Community Charter School are co-sponsoring a city council candidates forum Tuesday, Oct. 4th at 7pm at the Evergreen campus, 50 Bell Rd.
Unique about this program is that students will moderate and lead the event although everyone present will be able to submit questions.
Six candidates are vying for three seats in the Nov. 8th election.
Come meet the candidates and show the kids the grownups are paying attention.
Although Asheville ordinances call for property owners to keep sidewalks free of grass and snow, sometimes a little help is needed. Led by Haw Creek Community Asso. members Marti Terry-Purdy, Doug Baughman, Linda Fornoff and Georgena Millar, weed-filled sidewalks on New Haw Creek Rd. are looking fresh and shiny after their recent efforts.
