After careful consideration of the current COVID-19 situation, my own personal belief that everyone should take “social distancing” and self-imposed isolation very seriously (and the concurrence of that belief by some who operate our biggest distribution point outlets,) plus the prediction that the virus will peak in this area in the next few weeks, we have decided that the April Boone Country Connection will be available online only. *
New Melle VFW Post 5651 commemorated National Vietnam Veterans Day by placing flags throughout town from Friday, March 27 through Sunday, March 29. This year, flags were also added on Foristell Road from Hwy. Z to past the VFW Post.
The New Melle Fire Department held their annual awards and appreciation banquet March 7, 2020 at Fireside Bar and Grill. Board Secretary, Mark Shell welcomed everyone and congratulated the paid and volunteer firefighters on another good year.
