Find out why we could use a little help as we make preparations for a new project later this month.
At Patch, we're doing a little summer construction. Our team has been busy working on a new-look platform that we think is going to be a big improvement for users. If you want a sneak-peek of what it looks like, check out our east coast colleagues at Mineola Patch or New Hyde Park Patch for a frame of reference. But here's where I need your help. The new-look site will need a photo that will run at the top of every page. What image screams Creve Coeur to you? Is it the Government Center? CityPlace? One of our parks?
