Fall is finally here and it's my favorite season. The weather cools off, the leaves change, and everything seems to have that warm, cozy glow about it. Fall in St. Louis is always a great time with so many festivals and fun events to enjoy. Click here to read the full article.

Thank You!
Thank you to The National Great Rivers Museum in Alton for being such a great host for our September luncheon. We hope everyone was able to enjoy the beautiful scenery during the tour, and was able to learn more about media partnerships. We appreciate the speakers - Stephanie Tate, Mary Hediger, and Heather Woodard - for sharing their knowledge with us and Nancy Milton for moderating the discussion. Also, a big thank you to Just Desserts for the filling and wonderful lunch!

Happy October From the Fundraising Committee!
Tyler, Sara, and I have been working hard with our Programs team for the upcoming Silent Auction on November 14th! We can't believe it's coming up so quickly! In case you missed it, the auction will be held at the Saint Louis Science Center on November 14th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The room is fantastic, and is large enough for us to bring in some games for our guests to play during the event (as well as bid on the amazing items we're collecting!) We have few surprises as well - make sure to bring cash to the auction so you can participate in all the fun!

All members should have received a letter asking for a donation for the Silent Auction in the past few weeks. We welcome all donations, big and small. We've even had a few members asking if they could team up on donations and build packages to auction off - go right ahead! It's all about raising money for scholarships, the more you give, the more we can give! What a great way to get your company name in front of all our members, too. If you have something to donate for the Silent Auction, please contact Brooke, Tyler, and Sara, or send the item directly to the SLAA office. We're happy to pick up your donations as well.

We'll see you at the auction on November 14th!
