The North Carolina Room, Pack Memorial Library is presenting a six part series called Asheville in the 1980s: A Formative Decade Told by Those Who Shaped It
If you missed the first in the series you can check out the blog where you will also find the full schedule of the remaining public forums about key moments in our community during the 1980's.
While the excitement and knowledge is fresh, let's capture a few thoughts from our time away. Answer as many questions as you'd like. We'll take your answers and create a series of blogs that help share our experience with our community.
Thank you for everything!
(BTW - below each question/field, you'll find a little prompt to help you answer each question).
When you sit down and listen to people tell their story, you find out all kinds of amazing things. That’s what happened when our team of AmeriCorps VISTA members at Erwin Middle School began interviewing key members of the Erwin school community.

The first three staff that they interviewed are showcased below.
“One street from where you woke up this morning, someone is calling 2-1-1.”
That’s how this year’s LIVE UNITED Celebration opened, with a powerful message of how United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County is working towards our mission each and every day. In the hour that we were together, we celebrated the financial gifts and the hours of volunteer work that our partners and volunteers have contributed, and honored the partnerships that have strengthened our community.

Why are you involved with United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County? We all live in this community together and together we can make a big impact. Who doesn't want children fed, high school graduation rates to increase and a chance for people to have a comfy home to return to each day? I can't make any of these things a reality on my own but I can as a par to United Way!
