Back-to-school season is upon us, but I’m still soaking in the last bits of the warm season. It’s time to fit in those last few rounds of golf and enjoy the last of the summer harvest. Peaches are at their best right now. Did you know that Campbell, Missouri is one of the largest producers of peaches in the U.S.? It’s true! So enjoy some of the fresh, local fruit while you can! Even as summer comes to a close, there’s still a lot to look forward to. In addition to peach season, Bellerive Country Club is hosting the 100th PGA Championship this month right here in St. Louis.We haven’t hosted a championship for 17 years, and it’s an honor to have the pros return to St. Louis to play on the beautiful course at Bellerive. In fact, we’ve hosted the championship twice, and the last time, something happened that none of us could have foreseen that changed the country forever. It was in 2001, and shortly after the championship started, the 9/11 BACK TO SCHOOL AND GIVING BACK
attacks happened.The players had played a practice round on Monday and Tuesday, and the pro-am was just starting.Then the tragic series of events we remember all too well took place.The games stopped, and that year’s championship never got off the ground. We’re looking forward to a fresh start this year. With the championship in St. Louis, it will likely draw a crowd and bring the best of the best in golf to our home. I’ll be there for some of the action, but not to play — I’m volunteering! It’s a great way to give back and maybe get a glimpse at a few of the pros. If you’ve been looking to get involved in the community, August is a great time to do so. As schools prepare for the start of the school year, many could use an extra hand in the classrooms. You can also help by donating books, supplies, and other materials that help teachers on a tight budget.
The PTA can be a great option for parents with ideas to improve their kids’ schools. In fact, studies show that kids do better in school when their parents are involved, so it’s a great way to show an interest and have an impact on your child’s education. There are many great opportunities around our area to get involved. From the PTA and food banks to animal shelters and community gardens, you can have a positive impact on your community and feel good while you do it. Pick something that you enjoy — maybe it’s community theater for some and planting trees for others — and find out how you can get involved. -Jeff Zufall P.S.
