Hope everyone had a Wonderful Christmas Holiday spending the Season with Family and Friends sharing in the true spirit and meaning;

"To give up of one's self - to think only of others - how to bring the greatest happiness to others - that is the true meaning of Christmas"

The American Magazine, vol. 28 (1889), p. 742.

This doesn't mean you have to go to extremes or try to make giving too difficult.  You can find examples of living the true meaning of Christmas all over the world, in your own communities and in your own life.  It can be a simple gesture to another, a small act of kindness or having the opportunity and time to give in any way possible.

Gateway Arch 50th Anniversary

Gateway Arch 50th Anniversary

 

The final section of the St. Louis Gateway Arch was set in place 50 years ago on October 28th, 1965.  This was a momentous moment in the History of the Gateway Arch and it's Engineering Accomplishments.  There were so many factors that needed to be perfect for that final piece to fit seamlessly in place.  All of the work on the two legs had to be precise so they would meet 630 feet at the top.  The Arch's surface temperature had to be just right so the completed sections had not shrunk or expanded.  And of course the weather had to cooperate so that final piece could be raised to the top, lowered in to place and secured to complete the Arch almost four years after construction began on its foundations.

 

ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS on OCTOBER 28th

On Wednesday October 28th you can meet those who constructed the Arch at the Missouri History Museum from 9:00AM to 10:30AM.  There will be a Birthday Party in front of the Old Courthouse at 11:00AM followed with $1 Tram Rides to the top of the Arch all day, cup cakes from Sarah's Cake Stop and Destination Desserts from 11:30AM to 1:30PM and Commemorative Merchandise for sale.
