Mayor Lora Vitek

As 2021 winds down and we look forward to 2022, I feel a great sense of optimism for our community. The enthusiasm was tangible at this year’s Holiday Homecoming events. Did you feel it?! 

Our city was buzzing with families, friends and visitors. From the Lighting of the Lights to the Electric Christmas Parade, our city sparkled with St. Charles community spirit. Thank you to the St. Charles Business Alliance, all the event sponsors, and the many, many community volunteers who helped make the weekend such a success. 

As we head into the holiday season, please remember to Think St. Charles when you shop and support our local businesses. If you can’t visit a shop in person, consider ordering online or purchasing a gift card. The St. Charles Chamber of Commerce offers gift cards in various amounts that can be used at several participating businesses in St. Charles. Visit the Chamber website for more information.

On behalf of the entire City Council, have a safe and healthy holiday season! 

Lora Vitek
