October is fire prevention month and you’re invited to join us for a special program that will not only cover important fire safety issues but will let your kids see the fire trucks up close and get their picture taken with fire fighters at Haw Creek Fire Station 12.
Asheville Fire Department staff will talk about fire safety and the unique aspects of Station 12, including Asheville’s only pumper truck. There will also be handouts from the National Fire Protection Association. This October represents the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week, the nation’s longest-running public health observance on record.
Plan to attend this fun and educational program sponsored by the Haw Creek Community Association. You’ll hear from local fire fighters and learn about the leading risks to home fires and the ways that you can better protect your family. And your kids will get the full fire truck experience!
The Student Leadership Team at Evergreen Community Charter School successfully led the candidates forum on October 4. Five Asheville City Council candidates—Andrew Fletcher, Antanette Mosley, Allison Scott, Nina Tovish and Maggie Ullman—answered questions from the students and an audience of 50+ community members. Led by Social Studies teacher Jesse Wharton, the 7th and 8th grade Student Leadership Team included Piper Graham, Charlie Tomlinson, Brodie Smith, Landon Edson, Isabella Toothman, Lucia Hess, Gabriel Enos, Gus Levin and Meg Butler. The Haw Creek Community Association was pleased to co-sponsor this community event.
