Want to get your officemates or community organization together to help them learn more about Patch? Let us know.
This week, Patch editors had the pleasure of meetng dozens of people from around St. Louis, on top of the many, many more who we interact with on a daily basis as we bring news from around Arnold straight to you. A few weeks ago, we met with staff at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center as they ate cake and celebrated June birthdays.
