Springtime is around the corner. Plans are being made for the summer program, archery and the pool. It will all be starting in June. Pam and her staff does a great job with the kids at the summer program with swim activities, games in the park, senior visits and small trips to places in St. Louis. Our popular program, archery, is a sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows and is taught by our own mayor. The classes for children 7 & up will start June 6 to July 13, Tues, Wed. and Thur. from 9:30-11:30AM. It is free for residents and $5 for non-residents. Call city hall for the dates, times and registrations for the summer and archery program. Also the pool times, passes and classes. Our successful senior and craft programs continue year round. Look in other parts of the newsletter for more information. We hope you visit our new community center and we are working on updating our playgrounds in the park.
On May 7, beginning at Noon, there will be a free concert at John L Brown Park, featuring local band Nervous Pudding, and other local bands. This free concert is titled “Jimmy ‘Buckets’ Smith-A Celebration of Life” in remembrance of their bandmate and friend. Bring your lawn chairs, food and drink. Remember, no glass bottles, please.
We will be starting our beautification awards for the summer. We pick homes that are well maintained. If you would like to nominate your home or a neighbor, call city hall or someone on the committee. We will need phone numbers to ask permission to put a sign in the yard. We pick a home for every ward and it will be one for every month April through October. Please consider yours or a neighbor’s home. There are many well-kept homes in Woodson Terrace.
We have a power crisis list for residents who are on oxygen or have other medical issues that they would need help with if the electricity goes out from storms. If you would like to be on this list please call city hall.
