On Saturday, October 27th...under sunny skies with cool and dry fall weather, upwards of 900 to 1,000 people attended our open house. We had a variety of activities for people to see and do, as well as tour the facilities.
Several other agencies and organizations set up booths in the parking lot, including the St. Louis and Suburban Radio Club, St. Charles Co. Division of Emergency Management, the Red Cross and the St. Louis University Meteorology department.
In the coming days we will update our Open House webpage with additional information and pictures.
