The Heritage Needs Your Memories!
Everyone has a story to tell, including you.  The way history is recorded for posterity is when you write down your recollections of events, occasions and people.  You might think those memories are insignificant or are not interesting enough for an article in the Heritage, but you should let our editor determine that.  We have people available who can help you with the writing of your story.  We can even do some research to fill in details of dates and times if needed.
Contact us with your story ideas and let’s get them into print!  If you would like more information about how to submit an article call Amy at (636) 946-9828.


October 2017 Quarterly Luncheon Meetiing

Our thanks to Pio's Restaurant for hosting our Quarterly Meetings during 2017. 
Attendees at the October 28th Quarterly were treated to an excellent talk on the subject of World War I Home Guards. Patrick Allie, Military Arms Curator for the Missouri History Museum, was able to frame the formation of these units in the overall context of World War I.  He detailed the political climate and other circumstances that led to their formation and described several instances of how they were used.  It was a highly informative presentation. 
We need to thank Dave Sperandio for arranging the meeting and Amy Haake for bringing in historical pictures from our photo collection to share with the attendees.  It is gratifying to see the depth of our collection. 
Please note that the 2018 Quarterly meetings will be held at a new venue, the All Occasion Banquet Center located on 111 Compass Point in the Point West Industrial Park.  It is right behind the Hampton Inn at Cave Spring.
We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting on January 27, 2018.  Our speaker will be Donna Hafer, owner and operator of the Mother-In-Law House Restaurant on Main Street for the past 40 years, and a current SCCHS "Business" Member.  Donna will be telling stories about "Life on Main Street" in St. Charles.
