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!

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 xothermrick@gmail.com

Invasive Plant Workshop Sat Oct. 8th, 10am-12pm

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.
 
Participation for kudzu removal is limited to 30 so please register today at https://ashevillegreenworks.vomo.org/project/invasive-plant-workshop-and-workday. Everyone is welcome to attend and registration is not required to just listen and learn.
