Fatpocket

The City’s fourth, and last, summer concert series is planned for TONIGHT, September 11, 2015, at the Town Center Plaza, 221 Plaza Drive. Fat Pocket will be performing from 6:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m., with some of the most danceable songs ever recorded. Last year’s performance by Fat Pocket ended early due to rain, so everyone is ready for a great night, highlighting all of its great performances. As always, there will be complimentary hot dogs (800 in total), chips, shaved ice, kettle korn, and soda/water. Before the nights get shorter and the temperatures drop, come on by for one more evening out on the town, Town Center that is.

Scavenger Hunt

Early leaf drop?

Many Ash Trees in the City of Wildwood and throughout St. Louis County are experiencing an early leaf drop.
The reason why your ash leaves are falling is ash anthracnose, a fungal disease that afflicts ash and other trees in cool, damp, spring weather. It results in leaf drop and the leaves will typically have brown or black blotches that appear on the leaflets that often become distorted, curling toward the blighted areas.
 
Fortunately, anthracnose does not cause serious harm to healthy, well established trees. The affected trees continue to leaf out. Leaves that develop later in spring usually are not affected, as weather conditions are less favorable for anthracnose development. There is no need to apply a fungicide to affected trees.

 
September Program of the Wildwood Historical Society (WHS)

The September program of the Wildwood Historical Society (WHS) will feature a look into the Wildwood area’s past by revisiting the entertaining writing from 130 years ago, in the Watchman County Newspaper.

So come out and hear what life was like in the Wildwood Area in the late 1800s.

 
When: Tuesday, September 15, 2015, at 7:00 p.m.
Where: Wildwood Historical Society (WHS) Meeting Hall, 18750 Highway 100, Wildwood, MO 63069
What: Entertaining Stories from the Watchman County Newspaper
