Join us on Thursday, March 12, at 7:00 pm, when Brother Wolf Animal Rescue
will be presenting a talk at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 290 Old Haw Creek Road.
They will explain what Brother Wolf is trying to accomplish in our community,
highlighting different areas of concern in realizing a more humane environment for animals, including a reduction in animal deaths, helping community members in caring
for their pets, outreach in various public events as well as volunteer opportunities
HCCA would like your opinion. Watch your in-box later this month for our survey from Survey Monkey. There are only 10 short questions. Your answers will help us help the community. So please take the time to answer the questions and send back to us.
This note is a friendly reminder that 2015 membership dues for the Association are due in January. The annual dues are only $12 per household, which you will realize is a steal when you see what your Association is cooking up for this year. Membership dues account for almost all of our income and if we are to continue to send out printed newsletters and sponsor neighborhood events we need your help.

Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it’s free.
Approximately 60 of our Haw Creek neighbors are already using Nextdoor to build a happier, safer place to call home.
On Monday, September 14, Asheville Police Department began utilizing Nextdoor to share information on crime, crime prevention, safety and emergency notifications. Our Community Resource Officers (CROs) will be the primary source of information on Nextdoor. CROs are officers who work as a liaison between the police department and the community. They assist with public education, crime prevention and neighborhood specific issues.
We would like to remind everyone that police staff can only see our own posts and replies to our posts. We will NOT be able to access or view any information that you and your neighbors have shared on Nextdoor.
Nextdoor is not the appropriate way to request emergency services, police services, report criminal or suspicious activity, or file a report. If you require emergency services, or wish to report suspicious activity, please call 9-1-1. For all non-emergency inquiries please contact the Asheville Police Department (828) 252-1110.
We would like to thank you for allowing the Asheville Police Department to be a part of your Nextdoor experience. We look forward to connecting with you to build stronger and safer neighborhoods throughout Asheville!
HCCA is already using Nextdoor to promote our events. Joining is easy – log into Nextdoor.com and follow the easy steps. Get the word out to your neighbors. Let’s bring Haw Creek together.
