View Local Talent at the Cultural Arts Centre
We have so many talented people in our community with wonderful imaginations … the reason I know this is that you can see it in their art on display at the Cultural Arts Centre! I remember when I was in college and Art was my Minor and what it took to design a piece of sculpture or a print. It was something you had to feel or be a part of in your project. We have people like this so take the time to stop by the Cultural Arts Centre at City Hall to see these pieces of work … there’s always something original on display for you to experience!
Every two months, the Cultural Arts Centre at City Hall displays a new variety of artwork inspired by a special theme.
The next art show at the Cultural Arts Centre is “Star Light Star Bright,” which will feature works inspired by light in all forms. We encourage all artists, both professional and up-and-comers, to submit their art to our art show on Monday, March 1. For those who want to be dazzled by all our submissions, the art will be displayed March 4 through April 25.
Many of their works of art are available for purchase, too. Take the time to come out and support our local artists!
It’s always inspiring to see all the different views and perspectives displayed through our art galleries at the Cultural Arts Centre. Just last month, we had a heartwarming gallery from a World War II Veteran and his late wife, Edwin and Audrey Echelmeyer. Audrey was a prolific but private artist who inspired Ed to express himself through art after she passed away. It’s a touching story and we’re proud to be able to share their story to our residents. You can learn more about Ed and his work on SPTV (St. Peters Television) at SPTVnow.net.
Ed’s story means a lot to me, as it reflects how much St. Peters supports our country’s veterans, and does everything it can to share their voice. It’s one of the small things we can do for everything they sacrificed protecting our nation’s freedoms. All of our veterans have a story to share – all it takes is someone like us to stop and thank those in uniform. It means everything to them to know we appreciate their service.
For those who want to give back to our veterans, you can save 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 who serve us here and across the sea. It is a home away from home to make their stay comfortable. Everything at the USO is donated and all done by Volunteers! This is just another way we can reach out and “Thank” them for the Freedoms we have today. God Bless America!
Please remember that as your alderman, my door is always open. Contact me with any concern you might have at 636-85-5710, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am proud to serve as your alderman and value your comments.
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN REITMEYER:
St. Peters Economic Development Success
We had another great year for economic development in 2020, and are looking forward to many more great projects and new businesses in 2021!
If you haven’t driven down Premier Parkway recently, take a little trip to see the great big buildings that are going up as Premier 370 Business Park development continues to develop. We’ve got a lot going on at this growing 850-acre business park! There are plenty of job opportunities here in St. Peters with great pay and benefits.
Here’s what’s happened in just the last year at Premier 370:
- FedEx Ground opened a newly constructed 490,000-sq.-ft. distribution facility at Premier 370 Business Park. The project has created 1,200 new jobs!
- Metal roofing and siding producer Central States Manufacturing opened a new 53,600-sq.-ft. plant at Premier 370 Business Park, creating 88 jobs!
- Logistics company DMI opened in a newly built 375,000-sq.-ft. office/warehouse building in Premier 370 Business Park, adding another 111 jobs!
- Medline is building an 811,400-sq.-ft. distribution center next to Amazon. This huge building is a $47.5 million investment that will create 150 jobs!
- "Project Smile" is a 142,670-sq.-ft. office/warehouse facility under construction on Spencer Road.
So far, Premier 370 has added 8,000 new jobs for our community! and, there’s still room for growth with plenty of interest from other companies. CLICK HERE for a map of Premier 370 Business Park developments.
There are plenty of other exciting economic development projects all around St. Peters, from new commercial construction to renovations to much-needed senior living communities and upscale apartments. We’re a great place to live, work, play, visit and run a business! Companies like St. Peters because we put them on the FasTrac to cut through red tape and get their business up and running on time. Plus, we have so much to offer as a community, from low-cost utilities to an amazing quality of life.
Check out our economic development web page at www.stpetersmo.net/econ for more information.
Please save your aluminum cans for our "Pennies for Patriots Program" and drop 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 Mayor Tom Brown Senior Center inside in the two small blue containers.
