Creve Coeur Police officers have joined forces with St. Nick in recent years to put smiles on the faces of patients and their families at Mercy Hospital St. Louis.
There was no need to consult NORAD's Santa Tracker Thursday about St. Nick's whereabots. All you needed to do was ask the Creve Coeur Police Department where the Elf-In-Chief could be found. Thursday afternoon, with several police officers in tow, Santa Claus went room to room at Mercy Children's Hospital in Creve Coeur, spreading holiday cheer to kids as young as 11 days old. Check out our photo gallery, featuring kids from Chesterfield, O'Fallon, Florissant, Clayton and Kirkwood, among others.

The jolly old elf dropped by to see kids who were getting care from as far as Jefferson City and as near as Ballwin. The visit to the hospital was made possible by donations from Creve Coeur Police Department employees as well as their children, who brought gifts to a recent Breakfast with Santa event. The St. Louis Elk Lodge #9 also made a donation to the effort. Once Santa and his crew were done at the hospital, they stopped at the Ronald McDonald House and presented staff …

A look at what's going on around Creve Coeur this week.
Welcome to what is traditionally one of the busiest weeks of the year, to be followed by what is traditionally one of the slowest weeks of the year.

Monday night will see a rarity at the Creve Coeur Government Center as the City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission will each hold meetings. The council session was called specifically to address financing options for retiring the city's commitment to the Olive-Graeser Transportation Development District or TDD. On Tuesday, Hannukah begins at sundown. We invite you to check out what our resident rabbi had to say about the holiday, and hop you'll feel free to share …
