Message from Alderman Barclay
There are three special events this November that I’d like to invite everyone to come to. Please mark each date on your calendar so you won’t miss them. I’ll be going to all of them and look forward to seeing you there as well.
The first one is the semi-annual Schred-It and Forget It event on Saturday the third. It begins at 9:00 am and runs through noon. Residents can safely destroy important documents so there is no chance personal information can be stolen. Go ahead and place everything in cardboard boxes and bring them up to the Health and Environmental Operations Building. It’s located off of Mid Rivers Mall Drive, just north of Interstate 70. If you have a GPS system in your car or on your smartphone, the address is 135 Ecology Drive. Old credit card statements, past year tax returns and other private papers are just some things people can swing by and get shredded. When you get in line, make sure you have your resident privilege card so we can get you in and out right away. If you don’t have one, or it expired, a new card can be made by parking and walking into the building. Then you can get your car back in line to drop off your boxes.
The next event I hope everyone comes to is our annual Veterans Day Ceremony. Please join us on November 12 at 10:00 am at City Hall. St. Peters and the Veterans Memorial Commission will honor all the brave men and woman who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It’s always a great day when so many people join us to recognize and thank all of our veterans. This year our main speaker will be retired Lieutenant Colonel Gary Turner. He served in the Army Reserves for 28 years. Also, he is a former Mayor of St. Peters and is currently a member of the Lake St. Louis Board of Aldermen.
Finally, won’t you please try and attend our 29th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony the Friday before Thanksgiving. The date is November 16. Things kick off at 6:30 pm inside the St. Peters City Hall. Come see all the beautiful holiday light displays outside and then enter the building to listen to some great performances from local groups. Enjoy the holiday themed music and stick around to participate in the countdown to light up the tree in front of City Hall. The evening concludes with a visit from Santa Claus. I enjoy coming to this event every year. However, this one is extra special since my son will be playing the piano at the beginning of the night.
If I can ever help you with anything, feel free to contact me. My cell phone number is 636.795.8255. I can also be reached by sending an email to AldermanBarclay@aol.com and via my Facebook page which is www.facebook.com/aldermanpatrickbarclay. I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you for your continued support.
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN BARCLAY:
Keeping in Touch
I believe it is very important to keep in touch with the residents living in Ward 4. Sometimes I’ll knock on doors in a neighborhood just to talk and see if there is anything I can help people with. Also, I often receive telephone calls and emails asking me for information. It’s also nice seeing everyone at their annual homeowner’s association meeting.
So many great things occurred in St. Peters during 2017, and I promise 2018 is going to be even better. To stay up-to-date with what’s going on, sign up and receive the monthly UpFront newsletter via email. Another good resource is the My Hometown publication that is mailed directly to St. Peters homes five times a year.
More and more people use social media these days. Several years ago, I starting using Facebook and I go on it daily. The page I created is used strictly for sharing updates and information with people across the City. I may post things about annual events, special storm debris pickups, road projects and a wide variety of other things I believe you’ll find useful. If you aren’t currently receiving my posts, log onto www.facebook.com/aldermanpatrickbarclay and send me a friend request so you can keep up with things throughout the entire year.
If I can ever be of service to you, feel free to contact me any time. My cell phone number is (636) 795-8255 if you need to talk or send a text. Additionally, you can reach me by sending an email to AldermanBarclay@aol.com or drop me a private message on Facebook.
Thank you for your continued support. It’s an honor and a privilege to represent you on the St. Peters Board of Aldermen. With the holiday season approaching, my family and I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
