Discussion ends August while bluegrass strums into September

August 28, 2012 by  

St. Louis residents will be able to close out the month in style and start the next one on a high note with Saint Louis University hosting ‘State of the St. Louis Region’, followed by a bluegrass festival.

It all starts off tomorrow, August 29, with the Mayor Francis Slay, East Saint Louis Mayor Alvin Parks, Jr., and County Executives Steve Ehlmann and Charlie Dooley speaking during the State of the St. Louis Region panel discussion. Over the course of this session, members of the professional community will be able to discuss two of the subjects that matter to them the most – jobs and the economy. Beyond these direct issues, however, there was also plenty of open dialogue on additional matters such as the population, combatting crime, and the partnership between the County and the City, along with an explanation of how political leaders are working towards making the Saint Louis Region a better place for everyone.

Beginning at 7:00 pm and being held through the efforts of the John Cook School of Business, there looks set to be plenty of content packed into this one.

Meanwhile, print companies and brochure printers have probably been involved with the lead-up into the bluegrass festival being hosted by Old Rock House on the September 1. With the Del McCoury Band headlining and the festival also set to feature the musical styling of groups like Mountain Sprout and the Emmitt-Nershi Band as well, music lovers are sure to appreciate everything being offered here.
