East Asheville Library Construction Updates

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.

A Statement on the Death of George Floyd and a Call to End Racial Injustice

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

― The RevMartin Luther King Jr., Letter from the Birmingham Jail, 16 April, 1963

Those prophetic and inspiring words written more than 57 years ring even more true and more loudly, following the death of George Floyd and the subsequent events during the past two weeks. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world and from all walks of life came together to peacefully protest the injustice anywhere and demand justice everywhere.

They came to downtown Asheville, to Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C., to Parliament Square in London, to Town Hall in Sydney, Australia. They evoked the name of George Floyd, chanted “silence is violence”, “black is no crime”, “no justice, no peace”.

It is a mistake to think that the injustice so disturbingly administered to George Floyd in Minneapolis has no bearing on the residents of the Haw Creek community. If we don’t cry out against injustice and racism anywhere, we are doomed to live in a society where there is no justice for anyone.

The Haw Creek Community Association Board of Directors is asking members of the Haw Creek Community Association and residents throughout Haw Creek to join us in condemning injustice and racism, in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and in promoting better understanding and equality for all people.

This is an extraordinary time. It is our duty to join the millions of people worldwide in making our voices heard. In doing so, we are making our community a better place to live.

Haw Creek Graduation Parade, This Saturday, May 30th! Come on out and support our graduates!

Let’s support our local graduates on Saturday, May 30th!

With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing school closures and cancellation of graduations programs, Haw Creek neighbors plan another way to honor our graduates.  If you are a 2020 graduate–kindergarten through college–, Haw Creek wants to salute you with a parade of graduates, Saturday, May 30th.  Graduates will gather at the ball field parking lots, and the parade will loop through the valley as shown on the map.  Neighbors cheer on the passing graduates from their yards!

Plan to decorate your vehicle with the name and school from which you graduated.  Creativity encouraged!  With a licensed driver, your vehicle can join the parade loop and participate.  Queue your car at 11:30 in the Haw Creek baseball parking lots (Bell Road and New Haw Creek Road).  Parade starts at noon!
Haw Creek Neighbors:
Cheer on our graduates for this important milestone, while practicing social distancing.  Stake out a spot along the parade route.  Bring your camp chair or watch from your vehicle window.  Most importantly, your presence will show support for our young people.  Make a poster or sign of support.  Creativity encouraged!
