The last 12 months have been a great significant change for some St. Louis residents. It was, in short, a year to look back on. Lives were changed and a deeper and better respect were had for the city of St. Louis. Yes, there were challenging times in 2014. Through it all, though, everyone stuck it out and restored happiness and rest. There was more to enjoy besides the cakes, such as going to certain events, starting with the Burnin’ Love Festival that took place at Art Hill on Valentine’s Day weekend last year. Fair St. Louis re-started a new tradition of having it at Forest Park. The list goes on….
A small ‘goodbye’ reception was held at the Missouri History Museum on February 15, 2015, to close out the 250 exhibit. St. Louis mayor Francis Slay and most people who are part of the stl250 organization were on hand at the event, as well as some cakers. Also at the event was ‘Goldie’, which will be placed into a time capsule, to be unearthed in 2064 (St. Louis’ 300th birthday!). It was a sad, yet happy day for those attending, as they said farewell to the little golden cake. Little is known of what will happen to the Reunion cake, although it is said the Missouri History Museum may keep it.
