Message from Alderman Trupiano
A Special Time and Special Place
It’s hard for me to believe it, but here we are at the end of another year. Leaves are beginning to fall off of trees, and soon temperatures will drop and our neighborhoods will fill with the sights, sounds and smells of the holiday season.
As the decorations start going up and Christmas carols become ubiquitous in our neighborhood grocery stores, we would do well to remember that this season is about so much more. It’s about taking time off to relax, about giving thanks for all that you have, and for reaching out to help those struggling to get by. Above all it’s about traditions, faith and family.
Our City is a great place to live and Money Magazine has recognized us as the top city in Missouri! It’s the second year in a row we made this list and this is exciting news for all of us. Residents, businesses, City staff and elected officials are all the secret to our success. We’ve all helped create a winning formula with great neighbors and safe neighborhoods, excellent schools, quality City services, thriving businesses and FasTrac economic development activities; and our wonderful amenities like the parks and trails, Cultural Arts Centre, Rec-Plex, shopping, dining and activities and so much more! THANKS to everyone who helps make St. Peters such a special place for all of us!
We are entering our second holiday season with COVID-19, and while restrictions have eased a lot since last year and St. Charles County is among the most vaccinated in Missouri, we should all continue to be careful as we plan our holiday gatherings and events. The St. Charles County Department of Public Health remains an invaluable resource for information about the pandemic, including guidelines for prevention.
Finally, I’d like to wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN TRUPIANO:
Respect for Our Workers
Summer is gradually drawing to a close, days are becoming shorter and soon we will all be trading our shorts and swim suits for jackets and sweatshirts.
Before autumn begins, we should take the opportunity this Labor Day to recognize the contributions of working people to our community and our nation. Labor has always been essential to building our community and nation—and to running our economy. Many of us have been blessed to have jobs with safe working conditions, paid vacations, sick days and holidays, health insurance. We have these blessings because of the hard work and sacrifice of the workers we celebrate on Labor Day.
Over the last 18 months working people—especially health care workers, first responders, grocery workers, all kinds of front line workers—have sacrificed mightily to keep all of us safe, healthy and fed. These last several months have shown us that labor is still essential and our workers deserve respect. Thank you, workers! Happy Labor Day!
Labor Day also means our area schools are back in session for hopefully a more “normal” year. Thank you to our teachers for helping our children get through all of the challenges and look forward to the new school year. We know you did the best you could during these tough times and we appreciate you!
We all hope that as temperatures drop, fears of COVID-19 will continue to recede and that families will be able to celebrate Halloween as we normally do, with large gatherings and kids Trick or Treating. As we get closer to Halloween please refer to guidance from our City (www.stpetersmo.net) and the St. Charles County Public Health Department (sccmo.org/2105/COVID-19).
Should, God willing, children be able to trick or treat without public health restrictions this year, please be sure they do so safely, with proper supervision, brightly colored clothes, and well charged flashlights; and be sure to inspect your children’s treats before they indulge.
Hopefully we all get to enjoy a safe, happy and fun fall!
