Women age 40 years and over who haven’t had a mammogram in the past few years – or ever – are encouraged to call today to schedule an appointment at the Mammo-thon Sunday, Oct. 18, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The event is held at Northwest Health Care, 1225 Graham Road in Florissant.
Co-hosts Claire Kellett and meteorologists Matt Chambers and Kent Ehrhardt of Great Day St. Louis, will broadcast their show live from Florissant Friday, Oct. 9, on City Hall’s front lawn. The broadcast will promote the 18th Annual Fall Festival as the biggest and best block party in the state.
Sponsors, vendors and fairgoers are hoping for better weather this year for the Florissant Fall Festival than they had in 2014. Cool temperatures and rain didn’t keep everyone away, but blue skies and warm temperatures would be welcome Sunday, Oct. 11 along rue St. Francois.
The elementary and middle school students in the Ferguson-Florissant School District (FFSD) have the opportunity to become chess grandmasters.

Every Sunday is a new day in the NFL and we saw that with the Rams— they looked terrible. This team was not prepared to play at all last Sunday against Washington. They were flat the entire game and then when they had a chance to get back in the game they fell apart.
