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 the Missouri USO
Vernon Preston and Michael Petudat (pictured left to right), both volunteers at the Missouri USO spoke to us about the role this organization plays in the central US. They have 4 permanent members and about 1200 volunteers to support their activities in Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska and Kansas. They have two mobile units that offer comfort and "a touch of home" at troop deployments and other military events. These mobile units are known as their "USO on the Go", and they are on the go supporting an average of 35 events each month. They are completely independent of the national USO and rely on contributions for funding. There are USO rooms in both terminals and Lambert International Airport. The Fort Leonard Wood USO provides snacks, computers, TV, and other recreational activities for troops receiving training at Fort Leonard Wood. Visit their website at www.usomissouri.org to learn more about this organization.
There is no meeting November 24. Join us on December 1 to get an update on the sewer projects underway on our lakes.
The Ambassadors Hear from Lowes
Lake St. Louis Lowe's Assistant Manager Judy Taylor came to our meeting 11/10 and gave us an update on the status of her store. While online retailers like Amazon are growing in popularity among shoppers, there remain a significant number who prefer 'brick and mortar' stores for their shopping experience. Profits are up year over year in the LSL Lowes while store visits continue to trail other area Lowes stores. This is because in Lake St. Louis, there is higher utilization of available professional services.
Join us next week to hear David Henroid of the USO.
