A thank you from the boys of Brevard Road

In the Brevard Road West Asheville fire on Feb. 24, the three of us lost the majority of our possessions but we quickly gained a greater admiration for our friends, family and community.

We all moved here from across the South and, like so many others, we did so for the natural beauty of the mountains. However, in a couple of weeks' time we confirmed what we had already started to suspect: It’s actually the people that make this place so special.

Our thanks go out to our friends, co-workers, strangers and all the small businesses, which are too numerous to mention. It’s an honor and a privilege for us to live in a community that has been so supportive. We are proud to call Asheville home.

— Parker Sloan, Grey Nelson and Adam Bowers
