Happy May Granite City!
Holy cow!  We hope everyone made it through the recent hail storms without much damage.  City Hall,
Gateway Regional Medical Center and many downtown residents did not fare so well.  Our thoughts are
with them as they are busy putting things back together.

If you are looking for hail damage repair, or to be inspected for damage, consider our newest advertiser
A1 Top Quality Construction, LLC.  This is a locally owned company, manned with local workers, they are
also on City Hall's list of approved contractors for our city.

Happy Mother's Day to all our mothers out there this month.  The Mexican Honorary Commission
will be celebrating Cinco De Mayo on May 5th, see their advertisement below.
Also, there will be a fund raising trivia night for our own Good Samaritan House this month.
This is such a worthy cause, and they depend on the support of our citizens to continue to provide for
homeless mothers and their children.  They are always in need of toiletries, cleaning supplies, toys and clothes.
Please visit their page which can be found in the "Organizations" section of our website.

Remember to check out all the yard sales in our "Yard Sale" section because it's yard sale time in Granite City!
