Have a Fun and Safe Halloween!
I hope everyone had a great summer, and that school is off to a great start. Soon it will be Halloween and fall will be upon us. Time flies by so fast … don’t forget to take some time and enjoy your family!
Taking the kids trick-or-Treating is one of the wonderful adventures each year for kids and adults alike! I enjoy it, too, with 5 grandkids going 10 different directions … and testing their candy to make sure there are no bad ones … LOL.
It is great seeing the kids hit the streets dressed in scary and creative costumes going door to door, begging for treats from neighbors. This is a great time to see all the neighbors and friends!
I would like to thank our Police Department, Central County Fire and Rescue and EMT’s hitting the streets with their bags of candies and then watching the smiles on everyone’s faces.
This year, Halloween is on Sunday night, Oct. 31. Please keep safety in mind to help make your Halloween experience as enjoyable for your kids as it is for you!
Whether you make your child's costume or buy it at the store, help your child pick out a costume that is fireproof and bright enough to be seen at night. Using face paint instead of masks is a great idea too, because masks can obstruct your child's vision.
Make your child more visible to motorists by placing a flashlight or glow stick in your child's candy-collecting container, or apply reflective tape on their costume. And, if you are out driving while the little goblins are roaming the neighborhoods, please remember to drive especially slow all evening.
Most children have learned basic safety, please remind them to approach only houses that are lit, to look left, right, and left again before crossing the street, and not to get in cars with strangers.
If you set Jack-O-Lanterns on your porch with candles in them, please make sure that they are far enough out of the way so that kids' costumes won't accidentally be set on fire.
Make Halloween a fun, safe and happy time for your kids and they'll carry on the tradition to their own families someday!
As always, I ask that you please save those aluminum cans for our "Pennies for Patriots Program" and drop them off at Recycle City in the Blue container under the American flag or at the west side of City Hall in the Brown container provided, and at the Mayor Tom Brown Senior Center in the two Blue containers inside.
All the money raised goes to the USO at Lambert Field for the guys and gals that serve us here and across the sea. It’s a home away from home to make their stay comfortable. God Bless America!
Please remember that as your alderman, my door is always open. Contact me with any concern you might have. I am proud to be your alderman and value your comments. My phone number is 636-485-5710. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN REITMEYER:
Do you ever want to get out, take a walk, enjoy the outdoors and just take a moment for yourself? In St. Peters, we’ve got miles and miles of paved trails that give our residents a chance to enjoy a walk or run or bike ride. Not only can you get some exercise, you also have a chance to check out some beautiful scenery and plants, or spot wildlife. A trip through nature can provide some great therapy. Our trails make it possible right outside your back door, and we keep adding more … so far, more than 27 miles worth of paved trails!
In fact, in St. Peters, three out of four residents live within a half mile of a park or trail, and nine out of 10 residents live within a mile of a park or trail.
During the pandemic, our park trails have become more important than ever. People have enjoyed getting out and away. It’s great for peace of mind and for your health. Even more than that, trails are good for the prosperity of our community! People who search for homes often list access to trails as one of the top amenities that they seek. That goes for homeowners of all ages. This means that your home is more valuable because we have a great park system. Plus, businesses want to locate in a community that values parks and trails, because they know those amenities add to residents’ quality of life. Companies want to invest in a community where people want to live, work, and play.

As always, I ask that you please keep our service members in the U.S. Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers, as they serve our nation and work to keep us safe. One way you can show you care is by saving your aluminum cans for our "Pennies for Patriots Program" and dropping them off on the west side of City Hall in the Brown Dumpster or at Recycle City in the big Blue Dumpster, or at the two large Blue dumpsters outside The Mayor Tom Brown Senior Center. All the money raised goes to the USO at Lambert Field. It’s a home away from home to make their stay comfortable.
Please remember that as your alderman, my door is always open. Contact me with any concern you might have at 636-485-5710 or email me at email@example.com. I am proud to serve as your alderman and value your comments.
