On Wednesday, October 28, 2015 the Saint Louis Ambassadors '50th. Anniversary' leadership team will host a 'ribbon cutting' with the Young Ambassadors and the 1904 World's Fair Charitable Foundation they gave launched on March 14, 2002. This gathering will celebrate the new $400M St Louis Gateway Arch grounds 'expansion project' named CityArchRiver 2015. We will salute our national monument with pride, celebrate its 50th Anniversary and walk the new three block long continuous 'green-way' without a curb or step from Kiener Plaza, through the legs of the St. Louis Arch and finally overlook the western bank of our Mighty Mississippi River to capture this historic day on behalf of our entire all-volunteer group. We will start our City-Arch-River trek at Kiener Plaza that got its named in honor of Harry J. Kiener who was born in St. Louis on February 27, 1881. He was a boxer, wrestler, swimmer and runner on the U.S. III Olympics team, which was held in St. Louis held at the athletic fields of Washington University during the seven month long 1904 World's Fair at Forest Park. Harry J. Kiener died in 1960 at the age of 80. We will walk pass the Old Court House, which is part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial park. The land for the courthouse was in-part donated by St. Louis City co-founder, Auguste Chouteau and was the site of the famous Dred Scott 'slavery-freedom' case and the Virginia Minor 'women's right to vote' case. Then we will enjoy walking through the Luther Ely Smith Square – between the Old Courthouse and the Arch Grounds – which is named for the man who conceived the memorial on the riverfront, sought and donated funds, and organized the original design competition in 1947. Then we will walk on the 'park over the highway' of Interstate 70 and end our trip under the legs of the spellbinding St. Louis Arch. This one hour ceremonial walk will take place in order to remember and to thank those 'volunteers who came before us' that helped our fair city grow into a bi-state metro area that is now the 19th. most powerful economic engine in the U.S. that has 2.8M residents and 193K businesses that support over one thousand charities in our region. We will end our memorable journey with lunch at a great restaurant on Laclede's Landing, which is named after Pierre Laclede who is considered the founder of the City of St. Louis as a fur trading center in 1764...and St. Louis celebrated its '250th Birthday starting February 14, 2014 and ending on February 14, 2015!
