Ice Cream For Democracy Sat Sept 5th

Indivisible Avl is hosting an ICE CREAM FOR DEMOCRACY event this Labor Day Saturday, September 5th, 1-2:30 p.m. with the Sweet Ride Asheville ice cream truck. The spot is at Rendezvous Restaurant parking lot, 184 New Haw Creek Road. Just follow the signs. Turn left at the west entrance to Haw Creek and Rendezvous is on the right.

Indivisible Avl will be distributing non partisan information about voter registration and mail-in ballots, as well giving out free ice cream treats for the kids (adults must pay, sigh…) What’s better than ice cream on Labor Day weekend?

East Asheville Library Construction Update


Buncombe County Library’s Director Jim Blanton reports Spring, 2021 remains the target date for opening the East Asheville Library presently under construction. Structural steel is up and the roof panning is complete. Exterior walls are being framed up. Underground utilities are connected and repairs have been made to the fire station. He reports good weather has helped keep things moving forward. Certainly exciting to see the building taking shape. Thanks to Jim Blanton and our commissioners for their leadership and support.
