Get Involved in Your Community

If you want to actively participate in helping Swannanoa become a more active and vibrant community, consider joining us in any one (or more) of these ways that most interests you:

  • Help beautify Swannanoa in one of FANS’ annual Swannanoa Sweeps (community cleanups), or serve on the Swannanoa Sweep planning committee.
  • Grow your own vegetables or flowers in the Swannanoa Community Garden, or become a member of the Garden Committee, and help plan and organize the community garden.
  • Contribute articles or information for our website or our every-other-month community e-newsletter. Come up with story ideas or be a reporter or photographer.
  • Are you a social media whiz?  We could use your help getting FANS on Facebook and other social media marketing outlets.
  • Join a group that’s working on improvements along US 70 – sidewalks and crosswalks, new “Welcome to Swannanoa” sign, streetscaping, bus shelters, etc.
  • Do you have experience researching or writing grant proposals?  Help us find much-needed funds for FANS projects.
  • Become involved in local issues and help advocate for responsible development in Swannanoa.
  • Offer suggestions for community projects or events, and become involved in making those a reality.
