The Hazelwood’s Green Committee held its first prize drawing for the 2017 Recycling Pledge Card Campaign at a recent City Council meeting and five lucky winners won some fabulous prizes, just for turning in their pledge cards. The winners included Titus Reed, Sue Ridenhour, Jo Barcelona, Linda Spencer and Katie Theriault.
Reed and Ridenhour were the first two winners chosen by Mayor Matthew Robinson, who assisted Green Committee chairman Ron Darling by spinning the raffle drum and reaching in to make the selections. Both of them received two Home Field Box Seat tickets to the St. Louis Cardinals’ home game against the San Diego Padres on Thurs., Aug. 24. The tickets were donated by Republic Services.
Barcelona was chosen next to receive a Rusty Wallace Karting Center certificate, entitling two people to enjoy a Karting Experience plus their choice of either Mini-Golf or Bumper Boats, free of charge. Her husband, Dean, came to City Hall to pick-up the certificate. He said both of them are making a commitment to recycle more in 2017. When he was told that the facility uses European-style go-karts that go as fast as 40-50 mph around the rack track, he smiled and said he was looking forward to it.
The two other winners, Spencer and Theriault, won a Family Pak of four daily admission passes to Hazelwood’s White Birch Bay Aquatic Center and three free hours of time in the batting cages at the St. Louis United Sports Academy at the St. Louis Outlet Mall.
Those pledge cards that weren’t selected for the first round of prizes will be saved and pooled with the new submissions for the next prize drawing on Oct. 4th. This gives everyone who turned in a pledge card a fair shot a winning something.
There’s still time for residents to be eligible for the next round of prizes. All they need to do is to pick-up a 2017 Recycling Pledge Card Campaign flyer at City Hall, Community Center or Civic Center East. Then fill out the pledge card and sign it. After cutting the pledge card from the flyer, turn it in at any of the three abovementioned places and they will be collected and save for the City Council meeting, scheduled for Oct. 4th.
For those who are more tech savvy, they can download and print the flyer from the City’s website by going to this page, http://www.hazelwoodmo.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/2017PledgeCard-Flyer.pdf. After completing the form, they can submit it at the front desk of any of the public buildings mentioned above. In addition, pledge cards will be collected at Harvestfest on Sat., Sept. 9, at the City Tent and again on Sat., Sept. 16, at the City’s Recycle Day at St. Louis Outlet Mall.
The City of Hazelwood is pleased to announce that its 7th Annual Recycle Day will be held on Sat., Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The location will be in the parking lot of St. Louis Outlet Mall, in front of the IceZone. New features to this year’s event include EPC collecting TVs and computer monitors for $15 each and Citishred providing shredding services for personal documents from 9 a.m. to Noon. More information about this event will be coming out soon.
