An Announcement and Congratulation!


With those lazy days of summer a fond memory or at least a memory…  Fall activities are picking up.  So, mark your calendar for the Clarkson Valley Celebration on October 30, 2010 at the Fru Con/St. John's Mercy parking lots.  It's about health and safety!  Fun for the entire family, activities for all, inflatables, a DJ, games for the kids; and food and drinks.  The County Police (our police department) will be there with a K-9 unit; bomb and arson unit, helicopter and the SWAT tactical unit.  They will be available for inspection and discussion about what and how they provide protection to citizens.  They will handle traffic flow with the assistance of the West County Police Explorers (a unit of the Boy Scouts of America).  In addition, the fire department will come with a complement of fire equipment. 

 These organizations, police and fire, will have men and women available to discuss their jobs and how the equipment is used, etc.  Think about that youngster, i.e. in your family or in your neighborhood that would like to spend some time with these professionals.

 Add to all of this, the new St. John's Mercy building will be open.  Come see the latest in modern healthcare clinical facilities.  It's beautiful and functional.  A few of the services they offer are:  St. Louis Cancer and Breast Institute, Infusion Center, Radiation Oncology, Breast Center (Mammography, Ultrasound, Stereotactic Procedures) Imaging Services (CT, MRI, Bone Density, Ultrasound, X-ray), Lab Services -- and that's just the first floor.

 It's a chance to acquaint yourself with their new facility and its services - be in on the ground floor and get the latest skinny.

 Jim Meyer, Alderperson from Ward 1 and a strong supporter of the Rockwood Drug Free Coalition, was recently chosen as Citizen of the Month by the West County Precinct of the St. Louis County Police Department.  The Drug Free Coalition is concerned with the drug and alcohol use by youth in our community.  He was instrumental in organizing a prescription take-back program through the coalition, which was held in the Fru-Con building in November last year, and in February and September this year.  In his duties as an alderman, he is very concerned with the quality of life issues and in keeping Clarkson Valley a nice place to live and raise a family.  Congratulations Jim, for your dedication to our community and your contribution to making it a better place.  If you are interested in information about the Rockwood Drug Free Coalition, please visit
