I would like to take the opportunity to share a little information with you about the Annual St. Charles County Mayors Charity Ball.  The Mayors of the various cities in St. Charles County unite for this event to raise money for various charities in Saint Charles County.  This year we chose 6 charities as recipients.  They are: Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County, Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County, LINC St. Charles County, St. Charles City-County Library, The Center for Autism Education, and Volunteers in Medicine.  All of these organizations provide services that help make the lives of the citizens in Saint Charles County better.  This year the Mayors Ball is March 14.  Crystal and I are putting together a basket that will represent West Alton and be part of the silent auction.  Last year our basket raised around $70.  This year we hope to do better.  If you would like to make a donation for the West Alton basket or put together your own basket for the auction please call City Hall at 636-899-1734 or contact me directly at 636-899-0808.  For Tickets and Information call 636-949-3269.  We may be a small city but when we work together with the other cities we can make a great impact.
