3,800 mile Olympic torch style relay to take Old Glory across the U.S, comes through St. Louis.
EVENT LOCATION: St. Louis, MO to Chester, IL
EVENT DATE/TIME: October 24, 2015
CONTACT: Kim Dunman (St. Louis Chapter Captain) firstname.lastname@example.org | 805-240-6094 or Ryan McKennedy (Marion Chapter Captain) | email@example.com | 217-414-3601
The Old Glory Coast to Coast Relay is an Olympic torch style relay of approximately 38oo miles from the VA hospital in San Francisco to Bethesda Naval Hospital in suburban Washington, DC. We will be carrying an American flag the entire distance over the course of sixty days beginning September 11 and ending November 11, 2015. The flag will be carried from each day's starting point to a point approximately 65 miles east. Our goal is to raise awareness of and funds for our veterans through Team RWB.
The relay is coming through St. Louis! The relay will be starting around sun up on October 24th at Jefferson Barracks, and running to the Randolph County Museum/Courthouse in Chester, Illinois. The mission of Team Red, White & Blue is to enrich the lives of America's Veterans through physical and social interaction. Team RWB St. Louis has over 300 members spread throughout St. Louis, Cape Girardeau, Scott Air Force Base, and Illinois. We hope to build our team, and create more awareness during this event. Veterans, active military, and civilians are all welcome to join the team!
You can find the link to the route HERE and a detailed summary below.
On October 24, Team RWB St. Louis will depart Jefferson Barracks at 6:00 AM. A hand cyclist will start the day, and runners or other cyclists may join, but the hand cyclist will lead the route, and the pace. Team RWB St. Louis will continue to carry Old Glory down Route 231, later turning into Route 61, and will finish in Chester, IL. About ten miles out from the Mississippi River Bridge connecting MO to IL, a cyclist group from Chester, IL will carry the flag around ten miles to the beginning of the bridge. Local police officers will shut down the bridge for us to safely cross. At the end of the bridge, the Mayor of Chester, local Boy Scout troop, and other community members will take the flag from us a short way. We will then walk/run with the City of Chester to the Randolph County Museum/Courthouse (1 Taylor St
Chester, IL 62233) where we will retire the flag for the day. There will be a Community Celebration at the Chester VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars 939 State St Chester, IL 62233) from 6-8PM CST.

I would like to know what are your requirements for new program producers? I have submitted several very interesting ideas for radio programs, but as yet have never heard anything from this station. Please give more details as to how can become part of KWMU radio volunteer staff.

I am writing to let you know about the publication of a new book on urban revitalization in East St. Louis, IL. Building Bridges: Community and University Partnerships in East St. Louis which I authored was published August 1, 2019 by Social Policy Press.
The book describes how an inspired group of women activists from East St. Louis established a long-term partnership with students and faculty from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) to revitalize their community.
It is an uplifting story of a small group of women, inspired by the Civil Rights work of Ella Baker, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Katherine Dunham, who organized a highly effective grassroots movement to insure their neighbors and future generations living wage jobs, quality affordable housing, fresh fruits and vegetables, accessible health care and transformative public education.
So, if you are feeling a bit depressed by the play of your hometown baseball team or frustrated by the 2020 Presidential election prospects, make Building Bridges: Community/University Partnerships a part of your summer reading program. It will remind you of the wisdom of Margaret Mead’s observation, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
I would welcome the opportunity to come on the air to discuss this uplifting story about East St. Louis. Given recent public events, your listeners could use an inspirational story from across the river! The book is available from Amazon.com and socialpolicy.org
