Taking Team Building Outside of the Office


Out & About | October-December 2019



People often ask me if it is a good idea to try and sell their home during the winter holiday season. My answer is Yes. You may not get as many showings during the winter months, but I feel like the showings you get may be more serious ones. The cold weather has a way of keeping the tire kickers at home while the people who really need to buy a home will still come out to see your home. When selling your home during the winter holidays, there are a few things that you should keep in mind. Curb appeal is important. Leaves have fallen off trees so there won’t be as much foliage to hide imperfections on the outside of your home. Be sure to touch up paint and make any needed repairs. Make sure your walks and driveway stay clear of any snow and ice. You want the journey from the potential buyer’s car to your home to be a safe and easy as possible. Provide a place inside the doorway for buyers to remove their shoes or slip a pair of booties over their shoes. This will help keep your home clean and leave the winter elements outside where they

belong. Make sure to use a qualified Realtor. One that will market your home and use a first-rate photographer/videographer. Remember, you only have one chance to make a good first impression. I encourage you to make sure your home is warm and inviting. Help your potential buyers want to stay in the home as long as possible. Make sure the heat is set on a comfortable temperature. Have refreshments available. Turn on some soft music. Helping the potential buyers have a pleasant experience, will help the potential buyer remember your home in a positive light. One way to make sure the inside of your home looks its best is to hire a staging company like FLAIR Home Stagings & Displays. “FLAIR often stages homes during the winter holiday season, and it’s a FACT…. attractively furnished homes sell twice as fast as vacant homes and sell for 5%-10% more than vacant homes! So, take the first step to enhance the salability of your

home/listing by choosing FLAIR Home Stagings & Displays, St. Louis’ ORIGINAL home staging and merchandising company! At FLAIR we know the market better than any of our competitors, and we know what looks sell here. If you are remaining in your home while it is on the market, we know it’s hard to limit your holiday decorations while you are enjoying them. However, your home needs to appeal to everyone, and it’s sometimes hard for potential Buyers to look beyond the holiday decorations.

Presented by the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce and our community partners:

We will consult with you and your agent as to how your existing furnishings can be displayed, re-arranged and enhanced by FLAIR for a totally updated look that today’s Buyers are desiring. As with anytime of the year, curb appeal needs to be at its best, too. When you choose FLAIR you will sell your home/ listing faster no matter what time of the year and obtain the best selling price!” -FLAIR If you have any questions or are considering selling your home please contact me, Tryla Brown Larson at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Alliance Real Estate, 17050 Baxter Rd, Suite 200, Chesterfield Missouri 63005.

Say YES to Investing in Yourself Connect. Learn. Grow.


hen I was young, I never understood why my Mom, Leitha Macalady, would say you need to take care of yourself so that you can be effective in other people’s lives. I watched her and my grandmother (whom I am named after, Nonie Autenrieth) tirelessly take care of, volunteer for, and be an active part of our family, our church family and those around us. My mom recalls Grandma making extra meals for people that stopped by their house on Olive Street Road during the Great Depression, and always volunteering. I started to really think about this in the past few months and decided, as usual, she was right. If I didn’t start taking time for myself, I would be burnt out and no good at doing what I love – which is helping my family, our Chesterfield Chamber and our community. I was honored to be asked to be a panelist for FORCE Women Leading for their inaugural series with Maryville University. The panel topic was “Women Making a Difference in the Community.” This jumpstarted me into thinking about where I was making a difference – and how was I investing in myself and in others. This self-reflection produced three realizations – three things you can do right now to invest in you. First, take time for yourself – whether it be one hour in the morning before everyone gets up or an hour in the evening. If an hour is too difficult, start small and do 15 minutes. Second, read and journal. It is a wonderful feeling to get lost in an article or a book, and to journal. Slowly, you will see your progress and milestones be made real on paper.

Third, find a mentor. I am always flattered when someone asks me to mentor them, and I have had such great mentors/coaches in my life. This was a big theme among all the women on the FORCE leadership panel. They were all very accomplished – and they all credited much of their success to having mentors (note the “s”) in their lives. This theme also rang true at the Chamber’s 6th Annual Leadership Conference. Everyone needs guidance and peers to help navigate their personal and professional lives. We heard from five great speakers that are all here locally with businesses of their own and all Chamber members (which makes me very proud!). The event is also our annual kickoff of a course we offer at the Chamber that is all about the power of mentors in our lives. Our Leadership Chesterfield course has graduated 360 alumni since 2002. We have a maximum each year of 20 participants, and still a few spots left. Join us this year or next –and INVEST in yourself! It takes 21 days to start a habit. I encourage you to start investing in yourself – start small…just start! I’ll leave you with a recent observation from the Chamber’s Assistant Director Krysta Struthers. She said “yes” is our word here. Many people keep saying that everyone needs to say “no.” But, for us, everything is possible – and we will keep saying “yes” to our mission of helping our community connect, learn and grow.

Leadership Conference Inspires By Carol Enright The 5th Annual Leadership Conference at St. Luke’s Emerson Auditorium will not soon be forgotten. Always a sure-fire dose of motivation and inspiration, this year’s conference soared to new heights.

personal worth is a 10. He explained that when people understand they are a 10 – because their value is intrinsic – it empowers them to take risks, grow and be generous sharing their knowledge with others. All of this makes them better leaders. Another big message from Jeff: Be present in your personal and professional life, so you “don’t miss your moments.” After Jeff had everyone feeling like a 10 and present in the moment, attendees were treated to a stellar docket of speakers, including:

Look for your personal worth internally, because if you look for it externally – based on your job or accomplishments or any other external measure of success – it will never be enough. Jeff challenged the audience to ask themselves two questions: What is your worth and where does it come from? Jeff talked about what he called everyone’s personal value meter and said everyone’s

One-on-One Help with College Test Prep A conversation with Huntington Learning Center’s Assistant Director


untington Learning Center’s new assistant director, Kim Mohr, PhD, knows a thing or two about education. Before joining Huntington over the summer, Dr. Mohr spent 11 years as an educator. She taught all grades, preschool through 12th, in public, private and charter schools, and was assistant principal at St. John Vianney High School. Out & About asked Dr. Mohr a few questions about private tutoring, especially its benefits for ACT test preparation which is on the minds of lots of local high school students this time of year. Why did you leave traditional classroom teaching to work in tutoring? My heart is in education, so I knew I wanted to do something that was still related to that – still working with kids and helping them achieve success. It’s hard being a classroom teacher because you can’t give the one-on-one help to every student every day, as much as you would like. But at Huntington, that’s exactly what they get. They get the one-on-one help – and that’s the biggest difference. Do you think all students could benefit from ACT tutoring? College admissions has gotten a lot more competitive over the last 10-15 years. That’s one reason students and their families feel that the ACT preparation is so important – not just for admissions, but also for the different scholarships that are available to students. Having a high ACT score always helps for those meritbased and academic scholarships.

good test takers, but most students do not have the experience needed to do well on a test that is three hours long. You don’t do that in school. That’s what we can provide for the students – not only getting used to taking those really long tests but also getting comfortable with the types of questions they will encounter. Talk about student success. We see students, on average, improve their score by about five points. Even for kids who come in with a pretty nice score of 22 or 24, getting that higher score of 27 or 28 makes a huge difference, depending on the schools they’re applying to and the scholarships they’re hoping to get. We had one student improve his ACT by 11 points. Tutoring can be expensive. Why should a parent spend the money on it? With those academic and merit-based scholarships, having a higher ACT score helps. For those students who are really successful and qualify for Bright Flight (score in top 3 percent of all Missouri students taking the SAT/ACT tests) that makes a huge difference. If you plan on going to a state school, I know that many students who get the Bright Flight scholarship come out of a four-year university debt-free. On average, Huntington students received more than $70,000 each in scholarship offers. You’re providing the investment now to help your student

I would say that every student would benefit from ACT preparation, even the student who is academically gifted. Some people are just 12

get those scholarships so they don’t have to encounter those bills later on in life. What makes Huntington different? The main thing is the individualized nature of our program. Each student gets an academic evaluation when they come in. We’re always working on what they need, because we know what they already know. This evaluation also determines the amount of ACT tutoring we recommend. Second, the majority of our tutors are certified teachers. All are subject matter experts in the disciplines they teach. Any other benefits to college test prep? Learning how to take certain types of tests, particularly with the content that you find on the ACT, is good preparation for the types of assessments that students are going to see in college. There’s no harm in helping your student get even more prepared for what’s to come their freshman year of college.

Ever wonder who the “Allen” is behind Allen Roofing?


ee Allen began as a roofer’s helper in 1964 when he was 14 years old, manually carrying singles up a ladder and assisting roofers.

Throughout high school, he worked evenings, weekends and summers learning the trade. After graduating from Lafayette High School, Lee attended Meramec Junior College. During that time, he enlisted in the National Guard. After six months of active duty and being paid $80 per month, he realized it was time to get home, get to work and make some money. While working as a sub-contractor for other roofing companies, Lee saw his opportunity – and in 1972, he started Allen Roofing & Siding Company. In the early years, Lee worked with very few employees. Lee has grown his company to over 150 employees providing roofing, siding, guttering, soffit, fascia and tuckpointing. Today, the business includes

Lee has always been committed to his community and many organizations. He has served on the board of the West County Chamber of Commerce, he is a past president of both the Roofing & Siding Contractor Association and the West County Rotary (formerly Ballwin). Lee serves on the Meramec Valley Bank Board of Directors, the Home Builders Charitable Foundation and the HBA BUILD St. Louis PAC. In 2018, the St. Louis Home Builders Association honored Lee with the “Excellence in Achievement” award. In addition to Allen Roofing & Siding, Lee is a partner with Mike Beck at Beck/Allen Cabinetry, a designer/distributor of cabinetry with locations in Chesterfield and Maryland Heights. Also, Lee and his wife, Tracy, own Old State Investments, a company that buys, sells and rents real estate.

Fitting Fitness In By Heather Steinbeck and Kasey Boggs, House of Pain Gym


eather Steinback and Kasey Boggs of House of Pain Gym, a Chamber member, share their insights on how busy moms can fit fitness in.


“When my youngest turned 8 months old, I reluctantly signed up to lift weights with a personal trainer, once a week for one hour. I started looking forward to that one hour every single week knowing it left me feeling stronger, challenged, revitalized and happier. I began adding workouts, lifting three times a week to what are now at five. Over time, I realized making that one-hour of time a priority for my health was doing the opposite of taking away from my kids but enhancing it! I had more energy, improved mood and was feeling amazing on so many levels. Now, I am a single working mom and I still make lifting a priority five days a week. Weightlifting has helped me be more confident and completely comfortable in my own skin, which radiates into every aspect of my life. Weightlifting has inspired my sons to do the same – and they often join me at the House of Pain and are inspired by the atmosphere, people and are proud of my dedication – and of me. I am setting the stage for two young boys to have a lifelong mindset of taking care of their bodies and the gift of health and strength for their entire life!”

when you can, with what you have readily available. While I love my gym days at House of Pain, I have learned that not being able to go to the gym is not an excuse to skip a workout. In fact, it can be really fun incorporating your kids into your workouts. My kids love to mimic me doing pushups, pullups, squats and tagging along to the gym. I am instilling good habits by teaching them how to be active and we have a lot of fun when we get to train together. I know many women who are discouraged by weightlifting, but it provides balance in all areas of your life and teaches you new things about yourself and your capabilities. Weight training really shapes and tones your body and with there being many different options in equipment and movements, it stays exciting leaving you yearning for more. I encourage any mom who is doubting herself to give it a try!”

House of Pain 251 Chesterfield Industrial Blvd. Chesterfield 941-527-0222


“Being a mom of three, it often feels impossible to find the time and energy to make it to the gym. The most effective way to establish a routine is to create healthy eating habits and do what you can 22

Chesterfield Food Scene Gianfabio’s – Chesterfield’s “Taste of the Hill” By Mary Shapiro


ianfabio’s Italian Cafe’s motto is that it’s a taste of the Hill in Chesterfield’s Hilltown Village Center. Matteo Terzo is one of four owners of the restaurant – others include Rosario Terzo, his father; Gianni Terzo, his brother; and mom Maria Terzo. All live in Chesterfield except for Gianni, who lives in St. Charles. Running restaurants is in the family’s blood, Matteo said. “My father came to the United States from Italy in 1968, and, a few years later, he opened Santino’s restaurant, originally at Interstate 270 and Olive Boulevard from 1973 to 1987, which is when we moved to Chesterfield,” he said. “We liked Chesterfield for the potential. It seemed like there was a need for a good restaurant in that area, so we opened a restaurant, Gianfabio’s, in 1987 but added the Italian Cafe in 1996 – of course, we had made our home there, too.” Besides traditional Italian food, the restaurant/café offers many signature items that can’t be found at chain Italian restaurants, he said. A favorite of Matteo’s is filet pepato, which is an eight-ounce beef filet rolled in fresh peppercorns and covered with gorgonzola cognac cream sauce. “I also like the shrimp oreganati, which is lightly-breaded shrimp with white wine lemon garlic sauce and a touch of oregano.” The open-flame brick pizza oven and pastry display splits the dining room from the café/bar. While still casual, the dining room features attractive tables with linens and the café/ bar features a more relaxed atmosphere with televisions where patrons can take it easy, Matteo said. Gianfabio’s menu offers a wide selection including: appetizers, salads, gourmet pizza, calzones, pasta, veal, chicken, steaks, lamb, fresh seafood, homemade desserts, and gourmet coffee. Matteo’s dessert preference is cassata – a chocolate sponge cake with cannoli cream and topped off with chocolate. Customers generally come from a three- to five-mile radius, he said.

“Our reputation as being family-owned and operated keeps people coming back,” Matteo said. “The person out front is an owner, and the chef is an owner. Of course, the good food is the big attraction, as well as the family atmosphere with good service.” Growing up in Maryland Heights, he and Gianni started working at his parents’ restaurants when they were 10 years old. “We learned a lot,” Matteo said. “I enjoy the restaurant business – it’s in our blood. You have to have a passion for it. You certainly don’t do this for the hours! But you get to meet so many people, and most customers become friends. Food brings such a joy to others.” Out & About magazine has recognized the restaurant for many years, voting them Best Italian in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, he said. Hours are lunch 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, dinner after 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and closed on Sunday.

rout Lodge, a branch of the Gateway Region YMCA, holds a fond spot in the shared memories of generations of St. Louisans who have spent time at the resort as a family, with a reunion or in an adult program. But those who haven’t visited the year-round resort located in Potosi, Mo., in some time might not realize how much Trout Lodge offers to area businesses and other groups as well. “In addition to being a premier family resort and conference center, we also offer team-building experiences for our groups who book a stay at Trout Lodge,” said Trout Lodge Senior Director of Group Sales Calvin Dantley. The Y’s team-building for groups and businesses, called TEAM Works, focuses on three areas of organizational change and leadership development. The first is programming to help a newly formed team “get to know each other and start off on the right foot,” Dantley said. The second is helping an established team adjust to new members. This could be a new manager, new colleagues or the result of combining departments. “There may be conflict or different agendas, so we work with them to identify what are the differences in the agendas or goals?” Dantley said. “Then we set shared goals and open up those lines of communication: How do you have those crucial conversations where there is a little bit of tension or disagreement? How do you work through that with people?” The third area of change is organizations going through a major shift such as an acquisition or a longtime influential leader leaving the company. No matter the size of the organization or their reasons for seeking out a team-building or leadership program, Director of Camp Lakewood Glen Jackson, who October-December 2019 | Out & About

“The first time I was ever there, I walked out onto the back deck and a bald eagle flew right over my head,” Dantley said. “We did some pretty cool bird watching early in the morning.” Every program includes high-adventure activities. “They’re going to put the team into a situation where there is going to be some natural conflict. They may do a team-challenge course where the person doing the course is blindfolded and they can’t talk. All they have to rely on is the other people – and nobody can say anything, but they’ve got to guide them through this course,” Dantley explained. “At the end of it, the facilitator will do a debrief and ask the person going through the team-challenge course: How did it feel being in that situation where you couldn’t receive information from your team? Then they’ll ask the team members: Because that person going through the course couldn’t talk and you couldn’t talk to them, what were some of the pain points that you all felt?” Then they repeat the activity. “And it’s a totally different experience because everybody can talk and there’s no blindfold,” Dantley explained. “Then we tie it all together and say a lot of time when we’re in work environments, we don’t realize it but we kidnap each other. We say, ‘Go achieve this goal,’ but we don’t give any direction on how to do it. So we tie it into a business lesson.” The team-challenge course can be followed by a more low-impact activity or a high-adventure activity, still tied to a business lesson but not as

strenuous. “We try to balance it to make sure everybody can participate at their comfort level,” said Dantley. Organizations can customize their program with a number of recreational activities – great for small-group team building in a less structured setting said Dantley. Some popular options, among the dozens to choose from, are horseback riding, skeet shooting, archery and ax throwing. If a group has something else in mind, the Trout Lodge team will work with them to make it happen. Some companies also schedule a breakout session or a meeting. Saturday night is dinner followed an evening program that, again, is customized based on the organization’s preferences. Boat floats, moonlight ziplines, dodge ball and astronomy are some of the options. “There are so many different activities we can do,” Jackson said. After breakfast on Sunday, the program culminates with one more big group activity to drive home the lessons of the weekend. “We try to make it very real and tangible for them,” Dantley said. “What does this look like when you bring it back to the workplace on Monday?” Dantley said many organizations are surprised at how effective a team-building experience at Trout Lodge can be at bringing coworkers together to form a more cohesive group, improve productivity and promote greater bonding.

Two Chesterfield Cham Tackling Food Insecuri Though some area residents might not realize there are numerous people going hungry in this area, two members of the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce are tackling food insecurity in West St. Louis County.

By Mary Shapiro


erving the needy in West County since 1967, Circle of Concern Food Pantry is based at 112 St. Louis Avenue in Valley Park. Meals for a Million, started in 2017, offers community-wide food packing events where volunteers help prepare nonperishable, protein-packed and vitamin-fortified meal pouches for distribution throughout Missouri. The nonprofit is based at 1470 Mid Rivers Industrial Drive in St. Peters. Circle of Concern “Amidst nice neighborhoods and busy communities, hunger is for families in need.

mber Members ity in West County are from the Chesterfield area. Clients are families – working adults, children, seniors, disabled people, veterans, unemployed, underemployed, homeless individuals, and others who struggle with poverty and hunger. “Our Client Choice food pantry is our core service, feeding approximately 600 families each month,” Miller said. Clients ‘shop’ for a one- to two-week supply of wholesome foods including milk, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables, bakery items, frozen meats and canned goods. Personal care items such as toilet tissue, soap and toiletries are included. Circle also provides emergency financial assistance – on a limited basis when funds are available – to help keep utilities on, avoid eviction and address other short-term needs, Holden said. To receive assistance, clients are expected to pay a portion of the financial need, with Circle funds helping to make up the difference. Each spring, high school seniors from lowincome families who live or attend school in the Circle service area are eligible to apply through a competitive process for tuition funds for the coming school year. Once granted a scholarship, students may apply for scholarships for their subsequent college years. These scholarships can be used at community colleges, four-year universities or at nonprofit trade or technical schools. For children, the group offers scholarships to day or sleep-away camps, sports teams, swimming or music lessons through its Summer Camp Opportunities program; back-to–school supplies; a Birthday Club program for client children under 12; and kid-friendly food bags during the summer. Career mentorship helps clients looking for work.

Retired and working professionals pair with Circle clients to refine job-hunting skills, build resumes, practice interviews and bolster professional development. Holiday programs include Thanksgiving food baskets and holiday family adoption by sponsors, including many families, businesses, churches and other groups in Chesterfield and across the area, Miller said. “Many of our individual donors come from the Chesterfield area, and there are numerous businesses and churches in Chesterfield and throughout West County that support all of Circle’s programs generously,” Miller said. There are also many families in Chesterfield who use the services, Miller said. “One stay-at-home mom of three worked three part-time jobs to keep her family afloat after her husband left the family,” Miller said. “A Chesterfield man who had coordinated many food drives for us later had to ask for help when he and his wife lost their jobs. Many circumstances can lead people to our doors.” October-December 2019 | Out & About


With Circle for four years, Miller said it’s “an incredibly rewarding place to be.” “We are literally helping our neighbors, with the help of amazing, devoted donors and volunteers from this community – and a wonderful staff.”

Rowley started doing packing events in the warehouse of his office with 40 to 50 people and came up with the idea for Meals for a Million based on an idea that was started in Springfield, Missouri years ago, Polansky said. Now, the group works with private companies and organizations that host packing events on their sites to serve those communities. “We’re not a food bank so we don’t give food directly to people, but do so through other organizations, ministries and nonprofits,” Polansky said. “Some people fall on hard times yet don’t qualify on paper for a food pantry’s services. We bring food to the people – we’re aware some people work two or three jobs to support a family.” As an example, she cited a woman living in

and everybody else – more than 4,000 in their database – are volunteers, many from Chesterfield and West County, and many from churches and other organizations in Chesterfield that have been “super supportive,” Polansky said. “And they work often with people in their own communities,” she said. Most of every dollar raised – 95 percent – comes from individuals, though the group gets some corporate donations, she said. “In our inaugural year, volunteers packed over 650,000 meals with only 1,500 community volunteers after raising nearly $148,000,” she said. “Last year, Meals for a Million brought 2,500 volunteers and packed almost 900,000 meals. In August of this year, we attracted over 3,000 people packing food and raised just shy of $250,000 though money is still coming in.” Expectations are that 1.2 million meals will be packed in the coming year, she said. Meals for a Million seeks individual donors and business sponsors to help make events possible. Travis Seeger, vice president with Chesterfield Service Inc., a Chamber member, said his organization has been involved with Meals for a Million for three years. “We were introduced to Meals for a Million through a good friend, Scott Mosher,” he said. “The past couple of years, we had been financially supporting the cause, which was nice, but, this year, we jumped in deeper and brought a team that participated in the meal packing event. For an event with this many moving parts, they were fantastically organized. It made participating very easy - and a lot of fun.” To volunteer at events, there is a $35 suggested donation per individual though they won’t turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. “Every day, I consider myself blessed to make a difference in people’s lives who are trying to help themselves and are taking steps to better their and their families’ lives,” Polansky said.

(originally Bellemonte), located at the intersection of Olive Street Road (Olive Boulevard) and Schoettler Road (Chesterfield Parkway). In 1850, this village had one general store on the northwest corner of the crossroads where Charlie Gitto’s Restaurant is today. On April 16, 1851, a post office was established in one corner of the store and John C. Greening became the first postmaster. This store was built by George Schwenck and later became Hoch’s General Merchandise with Henry Hoch as proprietor. He also served as postmaster from 1893-1897. As the 1850s drew to a close, William Reinhardt opened a second general store on the northeast corner where Circle K is today. He served as postmaster from 1884-1887 and Adolf Hartung, a later owner of the store, served from 1906-1907. The post office location moved between the two stores depending on who was serving as postmaster. In 1907, the Bellefontaine post office was transferred to Chesterfield. The Bonhomme post office also opened on April 16, 1851, and operated until 1895. Bonhomme (French for “good man”) was located near Howell’s Landing where Old Olive Street Road joins Eatherton Road.

Orrville, named for brothers John and James Orr. It was located at the intersection of Eatherton and Orrville roads. John’s youngest son Robert became the first postmaster. He served from 1858-1871. The post office was then closed for two years. It reopened in the Hoppenberg-Fick General Store where it operated from 1873 until it was transferred to Monarch in 1895, then to Chesterfield in 1907. Gustav Hoppenberg served as postmaster from 1873-1883 and Philip Fick served from 1883-1895. In 1995, the Orrville area was incorporated into the city of Wildwood . When the Bellefontaine and Bonhomme post offices opened in 1851, “the rates for sending a letter were five cents for delivery within a 300-mile radius and ten cents for anything beyond that distance” (Creve Coeur and Surrounding Areas). The mail was sorted at the main post office in the city of St Louis, and then sent by a mail stagecoach and later by railroad to the Chesterfield area post offices. The mail was not delivered to homes until 1895, so the recipients had to collect their mail from the village post office. Part Hartung’s General Store.
