IMPORTANT COMMUNITY EVENT
We are now less than 6 weeks until the 4th of July and we need your help. Lake Saint Louis is well known throughout St. Charles County and the surrounding counties for having a great fireworks show each and every year but it does take your contributions to make this possible. Our fundraising has begun and we have received some very nice donations but we need much more to meet our goal this year.
The residents of Lake Saint Louis should be very proud, and you boat owners, with your family and friends on your boat watching this display can attest to how great this show is each and every year. We say this every year but this year is shaping up to ne our best year ever. We have a few surprises ahead that will please everybody. We are able to add to your enjoyment each year thanks to all of you, individuals, businesses, clubs, the City of Lake Saint Louis and the Lake Saint Louis Community Association making all this possible.
The Lake St. Louis Ambassadors are responsible for producing and helping to raise the funds for the beautiful fireworks show each year and we rely 100% on donations to fund the fireworks display. This legendary show is the one event that draws almost every boat owner out onto the large lake. The cost of producing this legendary event is now $30,000 per year and the Ambassadors must pay for the show in advance. Our members work hard seeking individual donations (combined with a lot of hope and prayer) to realize enough contributions to cover this cost.
You may have assumed that the Community Association or the City of Lake St. Louis pay for this show. Indeed, both make a significant contribution to the Ambassadors to support the event and we receive contributions from area businesses. But, nearly half the cost for the fireworks show is paid with donations from individuals like you. Your contributions of $25, $50, $100 or more adds up each year to cover the remaining costs.
When you compare the benefit of having your family and friends out on your boat or lawn or any other viewing area for this great patriotic show with what it would cost to go out to dinner or a movie, it’s easy to see how your contribution, no matter the amount, is truly worth it for a really memorable evening.
Thank you very much for helping continue this special celebration of our country’s independence!!
We are offering several options for you to make your donation. You can make your donation via check to "Lake St. Louis Ambassadors - Fireworks Fund"; 100 Cognac Court, Lake St. Louis, MO 63367, or by going to our web site at www.LSLambassadors.com and using the "DONATE" button on the website to make your donation either through a PayPal account or by credit card payment. When using the Donate button on the website be sure to designate that you are contributing to the 2018 fireworks fund.
We are counting on each of you to again make our July 4th celebration another memorable event.

The Ambassadors Hear About the Barathaven Special Care Center
Carolyn Lott came to our meeting on 6/8 to deliver a fascinating account of the early history of our area that lead to St. Charles being established as our states first capital. She covered our areas transition from the early 1800's when France owned much of this area and gave it to Spain. Spain didn't have much interest and eventually gave it back to France. She told us how then President Jefferson took note of this and sent a two man delegation to France to explore acquiring New Orleans which lead to what is now called the Louisiana Purchase. Through a sequence of events she so elequently relayed we became a state. Ms. Lott is a guide at our first capital located on 1st Street in St. Charles and is a treasure trove of local history. You are encouraged to take a tour and speak with her personally.
