In Chicago recently I met a Stake President from St. Louis, David Sylvester, who is chair of a committee planning a series of exciting events next year to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the St. Louis Stake (I hope I've got that right). It was the largest stake east of the Rockies for a while time and played an important role as a temporary stake for thousands of Mormons moving west to Utah. The Church in St. Louis is collaborating with the community leaders and even the Arch to plan events such as a big musical. I look forward to more information, and am hoping to go down to St. Louis a time or two to take part in the excitement and learn more about that great city.
