Tree of Lights Committee

The City of Dardenne Prairie, in partnership with the St. Charles County Salvation Army, has formed a committee to help plan and implement the Annual Tree of Lights Celebration. 
The Celebration will be held on November 22, 2014.  This has proven to be a popular event for Dardenne Prairie and the whole St. Charles County area. We plan to make it bigger and better in 2014 and we need your help.  Our first meeting was a huge success.  Some awesome people joined and they had some great ideas.  This committee is definitely going to be fun and what could be more rewarding than helping the Salvation Army provide for the needy families of St. Charles County.
If you are interested in joining,  please e-mail Patti at
