Message from Alderman Reimer
The last year and a half has been filled with uncertainties and we have all been forced to make so many life choices that we have never had to make before. Many of these choices have not been easy as there is no simple answer, at times. One of the most difficult decisions for me was whether to allow my children to go back to school for the 2020-2021 school year. Ultimately, we all decided it would be best for our family that they return to the classrooms. That is not to say that I think less of those parents who decided to home school or have their children learn virtually. Everyone needs to do what they feel is right for themselves and their families. There are no cookie cutter answers to some of these current issues we face today.
I don’t know if you have noticed but our country is a little bit divided right now. The good news is that we can make things better. We can be more understanding that each and every one of us has our own unique set of circumstances. We can express gratitude for the blessings in our lives; both small and large. We can also open our minds to new thoughts and ideas from people with various perspectives. When you look for the good you will likely find it. When you look for the bad, chances are you’ll find that too. Let’s make it a priority to be respectful to one another and look for the good. We’ll all be better off in so many ways if we do.

Find Natural Beauty in our Local Parks and Artwork
I always look forward to the spring: after a long and unpredictable winter, it feels so refreshing to get out in the open air and enjoy the sights of nature. I’m fortunate to live in a City with such vibrant, natural views all around our tight-knit neighborhoods and communities.
When I walk along one of St. Peters’ trails, it’s clear just how much our parks show a whole other beautiful side to our City. With more residents getting vaccinated and feeling comfortable with going outside, I’ve noticed more people enjoying safe outdoor activities. This time in 2020 we were all unsure about our health and safety, so it warms my heart to see people at our parks again. I hope to see more of our residents going on a hike or bike ride through our 27-plus miles of trails and parks as the weather warms up. Being able to appreciate the scenic outdoors with family, friends and neighbors makes this time of year so enjoyable!
While you’re outside enjoying nature, you may feel inspired to capture the view of our City’s blooming flowers. There’s no better artistic inspiration than the natural elegance of our native plants, which makes it a perfect opportunity to bring a pad and pen to sketch out anything that catches your eye. You then could take that spark of creativity and expand it into a full work at the St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre! Whether you’re a budding or experienced artist, the Cultural Arts Centre provides art classes and programs for everyone so that you can put your imagination on the canvas and make it a reality. You also can get inspired right now at the Cultural Arts Centre by the many interpretations of flora at the “Flower Power” art show exhibit that’s on display through June 20. It’s truly amazing to see all the incredible talent we have in our local art community, and I implore others to view these brilliant pieces at the Arts Centre when they can.
Whether you’re out breathing in the fresh air, appreciating the artwork at our Cultural Arts Centre, or enjoying all the other beautiful sights in St. Peters, I look forward to seeing you all, and I wish you and your family happy and healthy times ahead!
