It’s taken us 200 years to get to this point… & You can help us get off to a good start in 2016

Earlier today we sent our last e-news message of 2015. If you didn’t receive that in your in-box, see below.

2016 is going to be an incredible year for Old North St. Louis as we celebrate the bicentennial of the founding of the Village of North St. Louis. However, we still have 1 day left to celebrate the achievements of 2015 - and 1 day left for your tax-deductible 2015 contribution in support of Old North St. Louis Restoration Group.

THANK YOU very much if you’ve already made a contribution to Old North St. Louis Restoration Group in 2015. Your support has helped us continue the revitalization that Old North St. Louis Restoration Group began in 1981. However, if you still haven’t made a contribution in 2015, you have just one day left to qualify as a deduction on your 2015 taxes - and to help us start off 2016 with the resources needed to make ONSLRG’s 35th anniversary year and Old North’s 200th anniversary year successful.
To make that tax-deductible contribution right now, just click HERE. Your support will help us continue the following revitalization activities (and so much more!) in 2016:

…and so much more, including neighborhood safety initiatives, support for prospective, new, and long-term residents, and many other things that we just don’t have pictures of.  We’ve made great progress over the past 34 years - and we’d love to continue all of that in 2016. To make that happen, though, we need the resources to cover our expenses. We invite you to help us with that - whether through your own financial support or by telling others who can make a donation of any amount.

Your tax-deductible investment in the future of Old North can be made online by clicking HERE or on the image above.

THANK YOU AGAIN to all who’ve contributed to Old North St. Louis Restoration Group in 2015!

One more thing: we invite you to celebrate the new year with us at Old North’s First Friday Art Walk on Friday, New Years Day, from 7 p.m. to Midnight.

THIS Saturday, 12/12: 5th Annual Holidays in Old North

Just in time for all of your holiday shopping needs, the Holidays in Old North craft market and festival returns for its fifth year this Saturday, December 12. Please join us - and bring the whole family. We’d also greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word. Tell your neighbors and share your plans to attend with all of your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media channel.

And, once again, we’re thrilled to offer free photos with Santa.

For more details on the vendors and information about the music and other activities (including children’s crafts with Magic House) at this year’s Holidays in Old North, please take a look at the event page on Facebook by clicking HERE.


Thank you to all of our volunteers from near and far who helped us decorate for Saturday. On Tuesday evening, immediately following our usual 2nd Tuesday of the month Old North neighborhood meeting, several neighbors stuck around to decorate the ONSLRG Gallery and other interior spaces up and down the 2700 block of North 14th Street.  Then, on Wednesday afternoon, we received help from about 25 individuals who work at U.S. embassies all over the world, brought to us by the U.S. State Department and the World Affairs Council of St. Louis. Special thanks to Jen Russell and Friendship Village for donating much of the decorations!

Multiple photos from the team of volunteers on both Tuesday and Wednesday can be found by clicking HERE or on the collage below.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
