HealthWorks! Kids' Museum to Host Post-Halloween Candy Exchange
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 23, 2016 - HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis is encouraging children to exchange portions of unopened Halloween candy for chances to win a variety of different prize packages that encourage health habits and active play at "The Great Candy Exchange."

The event will feature an action-packed afternoon of healthy fun on Sunday, Nov. 6, from noon to 4 p.m. Admission to HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis is free during this event.

Each exchanged pound of candy will be worth one raffle ticket for the prize drawings. The more candy exchanged, the more chances kids will have to win prize packages, like the Ultimate Attractions Package which includes admission tickets to venues all over Saint Louis. The afternoon will also feature special programming in the museum's theatres and the ability for visitors to gain access to all of the new interactive exhibits. Classrooms, clubs, organizations and teams can also get involved. The school or group with the most candy collected will win an all school assembly.

"Halloween is synonymous with the over-consumption of candy, and while it is okay to indulge for an evening, it's simply not a good idea to have a sack full of sugar sitting around until Thanksgiving." stated Shannon Woodcock, president and CEO of HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis. "Instead, children can pick a handful of their favorites to be eaten in moderation, and then exchange the rest during the event. To help further sweeten the deal, the candy collected will be sent to U.S. military troops, along with toothbrushes, in an effort to spread smiles and demonstrate our appreciation."

"The Great Candy Exchange" is made possible thanks to Delta Dental of Missouri, Pediatric Dentistry of Sunset Hills Arnold and Wentzville Locations, Schnucks, Crest Oral B and USO Missouri.

Prior to Halloween on Oct. 29 and 30, HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis guests can check out a special interactive "Healthy Horror" exhibit featuring grossly, healthy activities. The exhibit will be available during regular operating hours.

HealthWorks! Kids' Museum St. Louis is located at 1100 Macklind Ave, near the Saint Louis Science Center. Admission is $7 per person and free for those two-years-old and younger. Parking is free.


Bonkers for Trivia Night at National Great Rivers Museum
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 12, 2016 - Bird lovers can enjoy Bonkers for Trivia Night on Saturday November 5, 2016 at the Audubon Center at Riverlands in support of the Meeting of the Rivers Foundation (MTRF).

Bonkers for Birds is a program that introduces 4th and 5th graders from the Greater St. Louis Area to the wonders of birding. Each year almost 2000 students research local birds and compete in an art contest to have their bird drawings printed in a children's field guide. In 2015, a sequel program called Fish FINatics for 6th- 8th graders debuted. All proceeds from the Trivia Night will benefit these two programs.

The Audubon Center at Riverlands is located at 301 Riverlands Way West Alton, MO 63386. The cost per table of 8 is $120. Doors open at 6:00pm. Trivia starts at 7:00pm. The 8 trivia rounds will run the gamut from history to current events and everything in between ...including BIRDS!

Reserve your table to today by email: meetingoftherivers@gmail.com or by phone: (618) 462-6979.


Soccer Field at NCNAA
NCNAA, located at 1530 S. Grand (near SLU Hospital), recently dedicated the new soccer field, built through donated services and fundraising totaling more than $200,000 from the construction industry, the soccer community, and other supporters.

Construction Industry Donates Soccer Field at NCNAA
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), September 18, 2016 - St. Louis Public Schools' Nahed Chapman New American Academy (NCNAA), located at 1530 S. Grand (near SLU Hospital), recently dedicated a new soccer field. It includes a custom designed shelter area and landscaping and was built through donated services and fundraising totaling more than $200,000 from the construction industry, the soccer community, and other supporters.

The event was the centerpiece of St. Louis' celebration of "Welcoming Week," a national event which celebrates the contributions of immigrants to America's history and to its future. The St. Louis celebration is being spearheaded by the St. Louis Mosaic Project.

The project began in May of 2015, when Peter Tao, principal of the architecture firm Tao + Lee Associates, Inc., approached Construction Forum St. Louis (CFSTL) to engage its industry connections to help build a soccer field for the NCNAA students. NCNAA teachers and administrators told Tao, who is a member of the MOSAIC Project steering committee, that the school's students - many of whom suffer from PTSD and other emotional scars from their environment prior to arriving in the U.S. - benefited tremendously from outdoor play. But the NCNAA asphalt playground was crumbling and dangerous.

Addressing the playing surface issue was the immediate concern. But the discussion quickly evolved into a bigger vision. Together Tao, the leaders of CFSTL, and like-minded organizations and individuals formed the Gateway Welcome Project (GWP) a not-for-profit corporation. Tao, the son of successful immigrant entrepreneurs, was chosen as the first president of the organization.

The St. Louis Public Schools' ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) program welcomes refugee and immigrant students. Many of those students begin their US educational experience at NCNAA, one of the ESOL centers in the district and the only K-10 newcomer school in the St. Louis area.

In a release, Peter Tao said "NCNAA and its ESOL program are some of the initial institutions that welcome refugee and immigrant kids once they have been settled. Gateway Welcome Project collaborated on what and how to help support and welcome these students into our community."

"The hope is that these kids will learn from this experience what it means to be in America, will one day be engaged with this community, and will become ambassadors to others and perhaps future leaders. We also hope that through this project our residents of our region will have a better understanding of the global challenges and issues and the value of a diverse community."

Joe Blanner, president of CFSTL and partner in the law firm of McCarthy Leonard & Kaemmerer said, "Not one St. Louis construction industry company or individual who we approached turned us down. From its founding, St. Louis was built by immigrants. We benefit from the legacy of the immigrants - Italians, Irish, Germans - who brought their skilled trades to this country and founded construction companies, many of which continue to this day. Today's new generation of immigrants is critical both to the future of our construction industry and to the future of the St. Louis region. It's imperative that we welcome and encourage them.
