Understanding Memory Loss, presented by Lutheran Senior Services

Forgetfulness . . . sometimes this is a normal part of aging and sometimes it’s not.  How do we tell the difference?  Is there anything we can do to make our minds and memories stronger as we age?

We’ll discuss the difference between normal and serious memory loss, as well as what causes forgetfulness and what we all can do to sharpen our memories as we age.

Snow Removal

The City of Dardenne Prairie currently contracts with St. Charles County Highway Department for street maintenance. If you have any issues with snowy weather clean up, please call them at 636-949-7305

The County has snow removal responsibilities on approximately 780 miles of streets and roadways, ranging from multi-lane arterials to subdivision cul-de-sacs. During a typical winter storm, the County Highway Department operates two twelve-hour shifts, utilizing 36 trucks and 45 employees each shift. Work is divided between 36 designated “snow routes”, with each route being assigned a driver for each 12 hour shift. It is the goal of the department to have each route salted or plowed twice each 24 hour period, but the actual progress is directly related to the intensity and type of storm. Extremely heavy snow, freezing rain, or severely cold temperatures impacts the time it takes for their drivers to get through the various routes.

The County also has a website for reporting road maintenance requests: http://highway.sccmo.org/highway/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=47&Itemid=100156  

Their contact information is:

St. Charles County Highway Department
