Thanks to our newest partner, Cane Creek Cycles, who gave us 2 bikes to give to Johnston at the end of the year! They will also be working with us next year to give Johnston 4 bikes.
Our speaker was Erica LeClaire, director of the Preservation Society of Asheville and Buncombe County. Formed in 1976, their mission is to conserve Asheville and Buncombe County’s heritage and sense of place through preservation and promotion of the region’s historic resources. They work to keep Asheville a unique and desirable city by retaining the character of our community in five key ways:
Preservation Grants to support preservation, education and designation projects.
Preservation Easements and Advocacy to protect endangered properties.
Technical Support for owners of historic properties.
Hosting the Griffin Awards to recognize projects that have utilized a preservation ethic.
Preservation Education Programs to inform the community about our shared history.
