Tri-City Food Drive Competition: Winner Announced...

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to theCity of Weldon Spring residents, businesses and all who contributed toward this year's Tri-City Annual Food Drive Challenge!  The cities of Dardenne Prairie, Cottleville and Weldon Spring again competed to see which community's residents and city hall staff could collect the most donations.  This is the fifth year for the friendly competition which ran from mid-November through January 9th, and the officials results are in...  The new St. Charles County Sheriff, Scott Lewis, did the judging and his official ruling declared Weldon Spring the winner!

This year Weldon Spring also accepted donations of pet food and new or gently used pet supplies for a local animal shelter. These donations went to the “Five Acres Animal Shelter” which was formally the St. Charles Humane Society. This is the only “No-Kill” shelter in St. Charles County and relies on private donations in order to operate. “We were impressed with the turnout of donations and positive response we received for the animal shelter,” said Michael Padella, City Administrator, “with this being the first year we’ve accepted these types of items, you never know what kind of turnout you’ll generate.  I think this will become part of our tradition for future food drives.”

Weldon Spring has now carried the coveted Cornucopia Trophy home once again! That makes a total of four wins for Weldon Spring, one for Cottleville and none so far for Dardenne Prairie.  As always though the true winners are those who are most in need.  All of the food drive donations went to Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service.  Thanks again to all who donated and participated in this year's collection efforts and a special thanks to the three City Clerks, Melinda Kwiatkowski, Amy Lewis and Kim Clark for coordinating this year’s food drive and helping to promote it within each community.
