IMPORTANT COMMUNITY UPDATE
Citizens in St. Charles County now have another option to reach 911 during an emergency - by text. This service is to be used only when it is not safe or practical to make a 911 call, such as a home invasion or domestic violence incident. Additionally, it can be used by those who are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability. For details, visit http://www.sccmo.org/1810/Text-To-911/textto911.
The Ambassadors Hear from Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions
Jason Everitt from Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions spoke at the January 19, 2018, Lake Saint Louis Ambassadors Meeting. The company began in 1956 and now with 190 employees is the largest family-owned pest management company in Missouri. Jason talked about common pests that his company contends with in the greater St. Louis area, including raccoons, squirrels, mice, skunks, armadillos, moles, and bats. He said that they follow guidelines in the Missouri wildlife code and recommendations from veterinarians. He also talked about insect pests including bed bugs, beetles, ants, flies, spiders, termites, wasps, and hornets. Mr. Everitt is pictured with Ambassador Hank Fischer. The Ambassadors meet every Friday morning at 7 am for one hour at the Lake Saint Louis Community Association Clubhouse. Each meeting includes a Bob Evans Restaurant catered breakfast and a speaker of interest to the community. Perspective members are welcome to attend.
The Ambassadors Hear About the Salvation Army
Former Wentzville Mayor Paul Lambi came to our meeting to speak to us about the Salvation Army (SA). He reviewed the fascinating history of the SA and talked about how they get the money necessary to provide the extensive services they offer. The Salvation Army was founded in 1865 in London, England and grown into a world wide organization.
Wherever there is a need, they show up. They are funded through private donations and the Tree of Lights campaign (they are the bell ringers you see around Christmas time). Private donations come in the form of Bonds, Funds, Stocks, and IRA Rollovers as well as Planned Giving via Wills and Gift Annuities and Airline Miles. The Gift Annuity looks like a very viable option for personal financial planning. If you are interested, visit their website (www.salvationarmyusa.org) for more information.
Join us on Jan. 19 to hear Jay Everett from Rottler Pest Control.
Senior Helpers Visit
The children from Green Tree Elementary put on their annual Christmas program for the Ambassadors and guests. It was, as always, a very good time. We enjoyed about 15 minutes of music followed by breakfast catered by Bob Evans. If you missed the show this year, do yourself a favor and plan to attend next Christmas.
Our next scheduled speaker will be Janet Quinn from Senior Helpers on January 5, 2018.
