Good news.

Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure on June 12

A Message from Martha McArthur and Jacquie Lager:

"To show our support of Carol Mullenix, we have created a team -- Carol's Crew -- for this year's Susan G. Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure on June 12! This Race is about everyone who has the drive to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by promising to do their part to help find a cure.

We hope you will join our team -- it's super easy. The team name is "Carol's Crew" and the registration # is 100942. Go to Once there, click on "Join Existing Team." Search for the team name, enter your info and make your donation with a credit card. And it's all done! Registration deadline for teams is noon on May 22.

Quick note -- If you are registering more than one person from the same email address, it's best to do it all at the same time. In order to enter family members at a later date, you would have to enter them under a different e-mail address.

The Race consists of a 5K Run/Walk (3.1 miles) and a 1-Mile Fun Walk. You can participate in the 5K as a timed runner, untimed runner or as a walker. Or you can choose to 'Sleep In for the Cure' if you are out of town on race day or just want to sleep in that Saturday. Rain or shine, we will join more than 60,000 others to celebrate and honor breast cancer survivors and remember those friends and family who have lost their fight.

I hope you can join our team and show Carol your support. Please let us know if you have any questions, and please feel free to pass along this message.


Martha McArthur

Jacquie Lager"

So come on, join in and see you on June 12, but remember that the deadline to sign up is May 22nd., so don't delay!!

Warson Woods ADT Select Link - Service Program

A message from our Alderman Judy Pohl:

"The City of Warson Woods has partnered with a rapid communication system called ADT SELECT LINK. This system will deliver emergency messages to the community by the communication method (s) of your personal choosing. Should local government need to notify citizens of an important matter, for example, a hazardous spill, this system would notify you by your choice of home phone, cell phone, text message, fax machine or email. In addition, the City may use the ADT SELECT LINK system to keep you up to date on important community wide information or changes relating to groups in which you participate.

Please notify City Hall with your current e-mail address, phone number and or cell number (s) up to 3 different numbers per household at 314-965-3100

We thank you for your participation in this new system as the City of Warson Woods strives to make communication with the community as quick and efficient as possible. If you have not yet signed up for this program the City urges you to do so today."
