Get ready for Veterans’ Day by stepping into the historic Heald Home (circa 1884) from 1 – 4 p.m. on Sunday, November 10, and chatting with Vietnam-era veterans about the exhibit of military uniforms, a field radio, C-rations, weapons, ammunition and memorabilia that will be on display for the afternoon. The weapons and ammunition are inert and cannot be fired.

“This is a hands-on display,” said Sheldon Hartsfield, spokesperson for VVA Chapter 458. “People will be able to pick the items up and even put on a helmet and field gear and see for themselves how much weight we used to carry running through the jungle.”


Beginning Monday, October 14, Fort Zumwalt Park in O’Fallon, Missouri, will officially close to vehicles so that crews can safely install holiday lights and scenes for the City’s annual Celebration of Lights display. The park will remain open to pedestrians who want to use the asphalt walking and jogging path through the park during daylight hours. Located on Jessup Drive (off Veterans Memorial Parkway), the park will reopen to traffic on January 20, 2014.

The public is invited to drive through the Celebration of Lights display, which opens at 6 p.m. on Friday, November 29 (the day after Thanksgiving), continuing nightly through December 30, except for Wednesday, December 25, when it will be closed for Christmas. The event, which is sponsored by the City of O’Fallon with help from local businesses, helps raise funds for participating not-for-profit organizations.


Can you help save a life or three? If you are at least 17 years old and healthy, please donate blood on Friday, October 18, between 11a.m. and 3 p.m. at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. O’Fallon’s “Making a Difference Blood Drive” will collect donations of whole blood and double-red blood cells.

“Taking a few minutes to donate whole blood can help as many as three people survive a life-threatening trauma or health condition,” said Kathy Halstead, Manager of Volunteer Services. “Double-red cell donations are especially important to surgical patients and those with cancer or chronic blood disorders.”
