The best kind of leader is the one who leads by example, and so this weekend we pay special tribute to our fathers—some of the best leaders of them all. These hard-working gentlemen show us through their words and actions what type of person we should strive to be. Happy Father’s Day, dads!

Youngsters with emotional and behavioral issues at Edgewood Children’s Center. Kids with hearing impairments at Central Institute for the Deaf.

Got an app for that? ALEXA MILLER does! The St. Louisan is the developer of the StagePage Concert App, a free iOS app that allows concert-goers to document their experience in a multimedia scrapbook. When THE RASCALS recently reunited in Port Chester, N.Y., for the first time in 40 years to perform Groovin’, Good Lovin’, and other 1960s hits, Miller was in the fifth row, using her app to create a virtual scrapbook of the event. Following the concert, she and her father, PAUL MILLER, joined group members and the E Street Band’s STEVEN VAN ZANDT for dinner. Van Zandt, who inducted The Rascals into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997, masterminded The Rascals’ Once Upon A Dream reunion, which alternated live performances with a million-dollar multimedia production retracing the band’s story.

When…Shriners Hospital and Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company held a ‘Sweet Dreams’ contest to benefit the hospital? Two-person teams consisting of a local media celebrity and a patient apprentice dipped and swirled their way to recreating the chocolatier’s signature Dreams confections. In addition to the contest, the company is donating 20 percent of all Dreams sales to the local Shriners through the month of October.

Real estate agents are plugged into their surroundings, aware of who’s selling what, how much they’re asking for it, and what they’re likely to get. Being in the know also heightens their awareness of community needs—and local agents have a good track record when it comes to giving back.

Have you ever wondered what it was like to learn how to read and write in a one-room schoolhouse? A tiny, frame structure in Creve Coeur has been preserved to help us experience just that. Lake School was built back in 1897 and designed for teaching all ages under one roof. It was erected in Chesterfield, formerly known as Lake, Mo. but long after it ceased being used as a school, the house was donated to Creve Coeur by Louis Gelber and moved there. The schoolhouse was restored by an historical committee appointed by Mayor Harold Dielmann, and the structure was rededicated in 1968.

Every couple wants their wedding to be a special event that family and guests, and especially they themselves, will remember for a lifetime. That sentiment prompted Andrew Chambers and Courtney Turner (Ladue ‘01) to plan their June 2007 wedding at the majestic Possum Kingdom Lake. One of Texas’ largest lakes, it’s located two hours west of Dallas. Guests came from all across the country for the destination wedding.
Courtney Seeger Turner and Andrew Rickard Chambers were married June 23 during a beautiful summer evening at The Cliffs Resort overlooking the water in Possum Kingdom Lake, Texas. The bride is the daughter of Susan Turner of Creve Coeur and Larry Turner of High Ridge and the granddaughter of Mayor and Mrs. Harold Dielmann of Creve Coeur. She is employed by The Richards Group as a brand manager.
