As a special treat this year, compliments of Robin and David Bair, they will have live entertainment at the last stop featuring Mr. Riley Holtz.

Riley Holtz is a St. Louis musician who combines guitar playing and his mellow vocals to create his own classical style of amazing sound! He is extremely versatile and plays all genres of music from the 40's to current pop and from contemporary to country. In addition to the local music scene Riley has made it through the ranks on American Idol and spent a year entertaining guests on Celebrity cruise lines.

Please RSVP to Holly Fercho at mhafercho@charter.net or 636-458-4594.

Leave your call back information and Holly will follow up with you about what to bring to which house. Everyone brings a scrumptious substantial appetizer or dessert and wine/beer to an assigned house. If you are assigned the first stop for your food and beverage assignment it is important that you show up on time at 6:30 because guests arrive at 6:30. Touch base with the host to make other arrangements if you cannot get your food/bev delivered at 6:30. If you can only join in for one stop or can't make it the entire evening, that is okay. Let Holly know so that she can keep the hosts updated on what to expect in terms of participants and food/beverage.

This evening sounds spectacular. If you are new to the neighborhood this is an excellent opportunity to meet some of your neighbors and if you have lived here for awhile, come on out and join a casual social gathering. Dress attire is holiday fun. Thank you to all the hosts opening their homes for this festive evening and to everyone bringing the food and beverages. See everyone on December 10th.

Christmas Eve Luminaries

The homes of Winding Trails will once again be lit up with luminaries this year!

We encourage ALL RESIDENTS to participate, as the scene is so much prettier if the luminaries are continuous. Your neighbors will be more than happy to put luminaries out and light them on Christmas Eve if you won’t be in town. You can even call one of the names below to put them out for you if you are having trouble finding someone. The point is, PLEASE PARTICIPATE! We are willing to help.

The cost for one luminary kit is $8.00. The kit contains 10 candles, white luminary bags, sand and detailed instructions. One kit is what an average lot requires. If you have a corner lot or an oversized lot, you will need two kits. Make Checks payable to “Village of Winding Trails”. Place check in an envelope with your name, address and phone number and bring to the Hutson’s home anytime between now and Wednesday, Nov. 30th.
Sharon and Vern Hutson, 432 Still Creek Pass 314-614-4575
Pick up will be at the Gay’s home on Dec. 16th from 5pm-7 pm and 17th from 9am –Noon
Kim Gay, 1927 Larimer Trail, 314-249-7888

If weather conditions prevent lighting the luminaries on Christmas Eve, please go to windingtrails.us for an alternate date. A light snowfall is ok and makes the sight more enjoyable. Rain or heavy snow may cause the day to change.
Happy Holidays and we hope you take part and enjoy the beautiful season and sight!

10 Charities Overpaying their For-Profit Fundraisers.

These 10 charities are not living up to their missions. Each spends more than 50% of its budget paying for-profit fundraising professionals to solicit your hard-earned money. They are ranked by the percentage of their total functional expenses spent on professional fundraising fees. As a result, very little of the charity's spending is directed towards its programs and services. You are making donations to pay the telemarketers!

Charity Program Expenses Professional Fundraising Fees

1 Disabled Veterans Associations 94.3%
2 Children's Charitable Foundation 87.3%
3 Disabled Police Officers Counseling Center 85.7%
4 Firefighters Charitable Foundation 84.4%
5 Law Enforcement Education Program 84.1%
6 Operation Lookout 82.2%
7 Children's Charity Fund, Inc. 78.5%

Put your car keys beside your bed at night.

If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until you turn it off.

It will go off from most everywhere inside your house. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won't stick around.

You can get your Credit Report for Free - but not if you go to the websites you see advertised which give you a "free" credit report. For example from a website: "When you order your free report here, you will begin your free trial membership.... If you don't cancel your membership within the 7-day trial period, you will be billed $14.95 for each month that you continue your membership."  And yes, you have to give them your credit card number up front!

Click on the picture to go to the only website I know where your credit report is Free. You can request and obtain a free credit report once every 12 months from each of the three nationwide consumer credit reporting companies in accordance with the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act. Order a credit report for yourself every four months, first from Equifax, then from Experian and then from TransUnion. Married? That's six free credit reports a year.
