Another great Christmas season full of cheer in St. Louis Hills! Friends from near and far cruised around the neighborhood to admire the amazing sights and sounds of homes and streets decorated for Christmas. St. Louis Hills is known for amazing Christmas light displays and this year did not disappoint or go unnoticed (read the St. Louis AT HOME exceprt here). Selecting winners amongst all the great displays is no easy task, so a special thank you also goes out to all our neighbors that made nominations and voted for this year’s winners. Speaking of nominations there were many, but being an active member is a requirement to receiving an award (info about membership can be found here). Finally, congratulations to those that were recognized as winners of a home or block lighting award!

Congratulations to the three SLHNA Scholarship winners for 2013. They are Dominick Gherardini and Marty Stelzer, both from St. Gabriel the Archangel School and Kathleen Magee from St. Raphael the Archangel School. Dominick and Marty are headed to St. Louis U. High and Kathleen will attend Cor Jesu Academy. These students were chosen for the $600 scholarship based on a recent report card, academic honors, extracurricular activities, community service, a letter of recommendation, and an essay. Congratulations to all the students who applied for the scholarship. It was a difficult decision as there were many fine students vying for the scholarship and we could only award three of them.
