New Brew Pub, Club Fitness Expansion
By Carol Arnett
The Florissant City Council held four public hearings last week including two dealing with a new brew pub and acted on several bills.
Alex Nsengimana, who long ago was a recipient of an Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoebox, will speak at First Baptist Church – Ferguson, 333 N. Florissant Road, April 23 from 2 to 4 p.m. Nsengimana grew up in Rwanda and experienced first-hand the horrors of his nation’s genocide. In 1994 he witnessed the murder of his grandmother and uncle. He escaped to an orphanage, where he received a shoebox gift from OCC. He recalls being so excited to have something of his very own.
