In light of recent stories regarding the  building located at 2301 -2337 South Kingshighway and within the Reber Place Historic District which is on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Board of Directors unanimously passed a motion to oppose any plans to demolish this important landmark.  Letters have been sent to proper authorities, but there is strength in numbers!  Will you please join me in signing a petition to be presented to to the St. Louis Preservation Board?  Simply click the link below to read more and to sign the petition:

April 25, 2016:  General Membership Meeting  will be held at the St. Louis Activity Center located 5602 Arsenal Street.  The meeting will start at 7:00 p.m.  The agenda will include elections of Board members.  Please feel free to bring any seedlings or plants (do place in containers) for our seedling and plant exchange.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get fresh plants without spending a dime.

Following the heels of our seedling and plant exchange, I am very pleased to announce that Mr. Bill Reininger Park Director of Tower Grove Park will be our featured guest speaker.  He will share with us the latest developments and future vision for the park.

Also featured on the agenda will be a representative, Scott Peterson of code red safety and  park ave coffee

Dale Schotte will be highlighting the latest updates planned for the 5105 facility.   You’re going to love this!

April 23, 2016    Volunteers are needed to help with tree planting (40 Red Buds) and planting flower garden beds in Sublette Park.   The time is 9:00 am to 11:00 am.  Bring a shovel and gloves.  We’ll supply the rest.  We hope to plant seedlings of native Missouri wildflowers at the entrance of walk ways.  Plantings will be also done in line with the monarch butterfly initiative.   Meet by the play ground~

In Service and Gratitude,

Kristina D. Jackson, M.S.W.
