February 22nd
This day is probably best known at being the Birthday of our country's 1st President, George Washington. George was one of great leaders and we celebrate his birthday and all of our Presidents on the 3rd Monday of February each year.
Did you know that some also observe the following Holidays annually on February 22nd?
National Be Humble Day (Some need this more than others); National Cook a Sweet Potato Day (Does that mean you should eat it too or just cook it?); National Play more cards day (Does this included our 50/50?); World Thinking Day (Just think about that a moment!!); National Margarita Day (Reminds me of Los Lupes and a few other Mexican restaurants); National Walking the Dog Day (Always a good idea especially with your best friend)
Hope you enjoyed

The Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do
⦁ Is it the truth?
⦁ Is it fair to all concerned?
⦁ Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
⦁ Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Tom Ackerman, Sports Director at KMOX radio was our speaker giving a program on Sports in St. Louis in 2021. He covered that gamut of the sports scene and gave his insight on the local coaches, players and teams. Tom also gave some of his real life experiences and how he got to where he is today as only the 3rd Sports Director at the mighty KMOX.
This coming Thursday we have Missy Kelley, Sr Vice President of Greater S. Louis, Inc as our speaker. She will be co-presenting with Sarah Arnosky, a colleague of Missy. They will give an overview of Greater St. Louis, Inc and their mission of inclusive economic growth anchored by a strong urban core. They will the give highlights of the new 10-year development plan for Downtown St. Louis.
I know I have said this before – but you really do not want to miss this one. They are such a vital part of St. Louis being strong once again.

Annie’s Hope is recruiting camp volunteers! ~ An Opportunity for Hands On Service

Volunteer Recruitment Flier Annie's Hope 2021
" opportunity for our Club members to sign up as volunteers for one of the Organizations that we have supported through the Grant process. Actually, Annie's Hope held their first Camp Courage out at Skyway Farm many years ago. " Rick Tinucci "Will you please publish this opportunity in the next Pepperbox?" Thanks, Matthew Maddox
Annie’s Hope – The Center for Grieving Kids is a St. Louis-based nonprofit whose mission is to offer comprehensive support services to children, teens, and their families who are grieving a death.
This summer, we will host two Camps for grieving kids: Camp Courage, a five-day, four-night in-person camp; and Camp Courage–Virtual, a five-day virtual camp. Volunteers are essential to the success of the Camps. Can you please help us spread the word of our need for volunteer camp counselors, arts and crafts leaders, and helping hands?

We are looking for energetic, kid-loving volunteers who are 18 years old or older to support the bereaved kids who come to Camp. No experience as a social worker, counselor, or major in a social service profession is required. Some of our greatest counselors have represented the nursing, education, child life, outdoor education, physical education, and business disciplines. No matter the course of study or professional role, a volunteer experience with Camp Courage and/or Camp Courage–Virtual is sure to inform one’s education and professional work.
