The Valley of Flowers kicks off Friday, May 3. Look for the special pull-out section with all the Festival activities in the May 2 edition of The Independent News.
Some events, however, will start early.
On Saturday March 23, 67 volunteers turned out at St. Ferdinand Park, despite cold temperatures and an imminent record-setting snowfall on Sunday, to pick up trash at several sites throughout the City. Florissant litter pickup teams collected nearly 20 cubic yards of trash!
North County residents will vote April 2 in several elections, although several candidates are running unopposed.
In Florissant, Jeff Caputa is running unopposed in Ward 4. This seat was formerly held by Keith English, who was elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in November. The election is for the remainder of his term, which will end in April 2014.

We have only positive memories of an accommodating cruise line with a crew that aims to please.
