Asheville YWCA - Solar Panel Dedication

YWCA of Asheville
Wednesday, April 22, 2009
Time: 8:00am - 10:00am YWCA of Asheville 185 S. French Broad Avenue, Asheville, NC
Phone: 8282547206 Email: marketing@ywcaofasheville.org

You are invited to join the YWCA in celebrating our new solar panels, which heat water for our pool, kitchen, laundry and showers. This dedication event will feature speakers, music, food and door prizes.

We're also offering Earth Day sign-up specials to celebrate the fact that we are the area’s first “green gym”! Anyone who joins Club W: The YWCA Health & Fitness Center between April 20 and April 26 will get one month free (with a year contract). New participants who sign up for the April 27 session of YWCA Swim Lessons will get one lesson free.

The YWCA of Asheville is the first community center in Buncombe County to install a solar thermal system. At a time when we all are feeling the rising costs of fuel and gas, the YWCA is taking this important step towards energy independence.

More importantly, the YWCA is committed to being a good steward of our natural resources. This solar energy system will prevent the release of 18 tons of carbon pollution per year. It will have the equivalent air quality benefit of taking seven cars off the highway or planting 4200 trees. The YWCA will be a visible example to the thousands of children and families who we serve annually about the opportunity to use clean, renewable energy.

The YWCA Solar Project is in memory of Ske Bonsike, a wonderful teacher and example of conservation. The lead gift for the project was given by the William and Frances Beattie Foundation. The lead corporate gift was from Progress Energy.

Questions? Call YWCA Development Director Tami Ruckman at 254-7206 x 206.

RBC Bank President Gordon Nixon - Salary $11.73 Million


I'm a commercial fisherman fighting the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC Bank) over a $100,000 loan mistake. I lost my home, fishing vessel and equipment. Help me fight this corporate bully by closing your RBC Bank account.

There was no monthly interest payment date or amount of interest payable per month on my loan agreement. Date of first installment payment (Principal + interest) is approximately 1 year from the signing of my contract.
Demand loan agreements signed by other fishermen around the same time disclosed monthly interest payment dates and interest amounts payable per month.The lending policy for fishermen did change at RBC from one payment (principal + interest) per year for fishing loans to principal paid yearly with interest paid monthly. This lending practice was in place when I approached RBC.
Only problem is the loans officer was a replacement who wasn't familiar with these type of loans. She never informed me verbally or in writing about this new criteria.
