Ready for Warmer Days

With some very warm days in February and the daffodils in full bloom at the beginning of March, my husband and I took advantage of the unseasonably mild weather by walking our dog in Faust Park. We watched the progress of African Schoolhouse #4 being built, log by numbered log. It was fascinating to witness history being preserved, and especially interesting to me as I also had watched the schoolhouse being dismantled from its original site by our home. If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend taking a stroll through Faust Park and its historic village. It is such a treat!

Spring is also a perfect time to visit the Butterfly House. The balmy temperature is ideal on chilly days, and you may just learn about more than butterflies. Tad is an onsite entomologist busting the myths about some insects. I cannot say I love them, but I have a growing appreciation of them.

I love living in Missouri with the different seasons, but something about sunlight, longer days and getting out my hummingbird feeders makes me smile. If you’re ready to come out of hibernation and start enjoying the outdoors, the Chesterfield Regional Chamber has you covered with a full calendar of spring and summer events.

Our 6th Annual Blossom Bolt (5k/10k & Sprout Sprint) is April 8. Check out the event and registration details on page 10. Invite 10 or more friends, and y’all will get a discount. April 24 is our 33rd Annual Spring Golf Tournament at Persimmon Woods. Join us for this “FUN”raiser and scramble. Participating in these events help you stay active AND support our Chamber — which helps us put on other events for our community.

New this year is our inaugural Women’s Empowerment Event on May 5 at the AC Hotel by Marriott in Chesterfield. Check out our story on page 22. This event is open to all women, but space is limited. Please join us!

Before you know it, we’ll be gearing up for our FREE 36th Annual Chesterfield Chamber Summer Concert Series. The concerts take place on Tuesdays, June 6 through August 15. And we are excited to welcome a great lineup of local bands: Butchwax and the Hollywoods, Spectrum, Scott and Karl, Fanfare, Johnny Henry, Decades Apart, Klose Kuarters, Trilogy and the Hulapoppers. Our themed nights are also back, along with the Commerce Bank Kids Zone, vendors, food trucks (Sugarfire, Kona Ice, Tipsy Pony Party Bar, Wayno’s, Fallon’s Bar & Grill, etc.) and — new this year — bingo at 6 pm. Check out page 39 for concert details.

The concert series is a beloved community tradition that is only possible through the support of the Chamber and our local businesses. Please patronize the businesses who participate at the concerts and, as always, buy local. We cannot wait to welcome everyone back and celebrate summer under the stars.

Top Travel Trends 2023 J

ust like fashion and diets, travel also follows trends — and 2023 is shaping up to be as stylish and full of flair as ever. Find out what is on the radar for the travel savvy. Don’t miss the boat on these experiences that will surely leave you richer in understanding.

1. Philantourism – Travel with a Purpose

Instead of visiting the typical well-known tourist attractions, pick a place and country a little off-the-beaten path that could use a positive impact. Shopping and eating locally help stimulate the economy and add dollars to develop the locale. Globus and G Adventures offer itineraries to satisfy your wanderlust while bringing a different dimension to your travel.

2. Nature-Based Tourism – The Great Outdoors Is Calling

Embrace nature and visit locations that are all about the beauty of the natural landscape. Hike through one of the many U.S. national parks, venture through the rainforest in Costa Rica or explore an elephant sanctuary in Bali.

3. Contactless Technology – Travel Intuitively

This is a natural evolution as cruise lines try to improve onboard experiences. With Princess Medallion Class, get whatever you want delivered right to you while Virgin Voyages offers a virtual queue on its app — so you don’t have to leave your poolside hotspot to wait in line for dinner. The next time you cruise, you might find the wave of your key unlocks a world of possibilities.

4. Customized Vacations – Explore YOUR Way

Custom does not always equal expensive. Most travel advisors don’t charge for their services and are more than happy to help you pick locations, destinations, hotels and excursions based on your preferences. With everything from river cruising to ocean cruising, allinclusive resorts and escorted tours, I can help you find the vacation you’ve been longing for.

5. Sustainable Tourism – Travel Responsibly

Sustainable tourism focuses on protecting biodiversity and respecting the cultures of host communities. Some ways you can travel sustainably including finding eco-friendly hotels, choosing tours that preserve local wildlife and cultures, and selecting reef-safe products for your skin.

I am a travel advisor and owner of a Cruise Planners franchise located right here in Chesterfield. I assist clients, at no cost to them, with all types of travel including cruises, all-inclusive vacations, European getaways

— and so much more. I pride myself on giving my clients a free personalized experience, helping my clients plan their dream vacation every step of the way. Check out my website TotalComfortTravel.com, email me at Danielle. Petty@CruisePlanners.com or call me at 636-778-2446 to plan your next escape!

Chesterfield Food Scene

Made-from-scratch Breakfast Keeps Jenny’s Diner’s Regulars Coming Back for More

At Jenny’s Diner in Chesterfield, they come for the made-from-scratch breakfast but stay for the conversation.

Betty Phiri-Chibwe, who co-owns the restaurant with her husband and two longtime friends, loves talking with the diner’s customers whom she calls “the best thing about West County.”

“We really love our customers,” she says. “They are very caring. They are very committed customers.”

During the pandemic, Betty says customers “pleaded for us to stay open, even for a few hours.”

“They made a point of saying, ‘I will come every day because I just want you to stay in business.’”

On any given day, the old-school diner is filled with regulars whom Betty considers family.

“Some come every day. Some come every other day. Some come a specific day every week,” she says.

On Thursday mornings, the staff knows to expect three men for breakfast. Like clockwork, a group of 15 women come every Friday. The diner also counts among its regulars a number of single men and women who had previously frequented the diner with their late spouses.

“We’re glad when they come in to see us. It’s touching sometimes,” says Betty. “They’ll come in to have a meal but also to have a conversation with us.”

They also come for what Betty advertises as “the best breakfast in town.”

When asked what makes the breakfast at Jenny’s the best, Betty says everything is made from scratch — including the popular home-fried potatoes.

“We boil them in the morning, then peel, shred and cook them,” says Betty.

“We break our eggs,” which are delivered from a farmer who provides cage-free, organic eggs.

They also chop their own vegetables.

In fact, everything the diner serves is “real food.”

“That’s something I care about,” Betty says.

“We have a lot of vendors that come through our door trying to convince us to use pre-made potatoes or boxed eggs. I want to be proud of what I’m serving. We don’t take short cuts.”

When asked to name her favorite menu item, Betty struggles to choose just one before settling on the farm skillet: a bed of home-fried potatoes topped with an onion-green pepper-sausage scramble and two eggs any style.

Tom’s Stack is named after one of the diner’s regulars. It consists of a bed of home-fried potatoes, biscuits, sausage gravy and two eggs any style.

“He created it, we added it to the menu — and people love it,” says Betty.

Whether you order a skillet, a stack or the freshly fried beignets which represent Betty’s Zambian roots, you’re sure to feel right at home at Jenny’s Diner.

Reflections from Rockwood’s New Superintendent

Letter from the Board

As I reflect on my first eight months in Rockwood, I have so much to be thankful for — and there is so much for us to be proud of as a community here in Rockwood.

There are many moving parts in a district of our size, and I think it is important to frequently take a step back and consider the big picture. I have shared this privately and publicly, and it is important to note that I share it not in arrogance but out of respect: We are ROCKWOOD. Our student and staff accomplishments, reputation for excellence and community pride are the reasons people move to our district — and the same reasons that attracted me to the position and the opportunity to move my own family here. Our mission of ensuring all students realize their potential is not without its challenges, but it is critical work that every student and family trusts us to engage in.

This year, we have had a theme of “safe, focused and fun.” When we talk about safety, it is not just about physical safety but cybersecurity and social-emotional safety, too. We recognize our students simply can’t learn if they don’t feel seen, supported and safe at school. Our partnership with Hazel Health is an example of how we have prioritized supporting the social-emotional health of our students, and our robust employee assistance program demonstrates our commitment to our employees’ social-emotional health as well.

The classroom is the reason we have a school district. Thanks to our dedicated and talented educators, as well as the abundance of resources and opportunities for our students, Rockwood graduates are focused on their goals and well prepared for what lies ahead after high school. Here are just a few points of pride:

● Nearly 1,800 Rockwood students in middle school and high school are enrolled in at least one Project Lead the Way course, earning hands-on learning experiences in STEM subjects.

● Each year, nearly 100 high school juniors participate in the Project Interface summer internship program through Partners in Education, which also offers job shadowing and other career exploration opportunities throughout the school year.

● The Rockwood Class of 2022 averaged a score of 23.2 on the ACT. This average was 14 percent higher than the state average (20.3) and 17 percent higher than the national average (19.8).

● A total of 36 Rockwood students representing all four district high schools have been named National Merit Scholarship finalists, placing them among about 1 percent of all high school seniors nationally.

We have to not only carve out time for fun; we have to reimagine learning to make it fun and engaging for our students. Rockwood educators understand this, and they are constantly working to find new ways to spark creativity in our students.

As I visit our schools and talk with staff and students, I am continuously impressed with the rigor of our lessons and the level of engagement in our schools. But that work never ends. We will continue to examine what we do and how we can best support all students so they are successful.

First-Ever Chesterfield Regional Chamber Women’s Empowerment Event Aims to Help Women Stay Fit for Life

Derby Day is the theme, but self-care is the mantra for the inaugural Chesterfield Regional Chamber Women’s Empowerment Event taking place 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 5 at the AC Hotel by Marriott in Chesterfield.

The event will feature several speakers, vendors, lunch, a fashion show — and a hat contest for those who want to go all out for the Derby Day theme. The main attraction is the lineup of women speakers, each successful in her own right, who have a collective message to share with attendees: Take care of yourselves, ladies!

“It is so important for women to share with other women their successes, failures, personal experiences and words of encouragement,” says Dr. Delene Musielak of ALEA Health & Wellness who is one of the featured speakers. “We never know how our experiences can impact others and the dynamism it carries. I will be focusing on how to lead as a woman and how our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being plays a role in that.”

The mother of triplets, Musielak says she is a “strong believer that in order to grow and expand, we need to surround ourselves with others who are doing great things,” and she calls the event an “amazing opportunity for women to make a difference in each other’s lives.”

“Women don’t want to miss this opportunity to get the inside scoop on becoming a stronger leader, learning how to keep their leadership skills up to date with the shifts and demands in society and culture — and getting the insight on how to be their best version of a leader,” she says.

Darcy Kammeier, practice manager at Racquel Aesthetics and registered dietician, says she is excited to share her passion for nutrition and fitness.

“Especially as women, we tend to put everyone else first,” she says. “We don’t always take care of ourselves, and it’s so important.”

Kammeier says the focus of her presentation will be taking care of your body through movement and “fueling yourself the right way because we really are what we eat.”

“Nutrition and fitness are actually very simple,” she says, “so I’ll just be breaking that down for everybody.”

STL Veg Girl Caryn Dugan, founder of the Center for Plant-Based Living and co-founder of The Doc + Chef Show, says she is excited “to help spread the good word about plants and how adding more of them to your plate can result in a healthier you.”

Dugan, who will talk about why and how we can easily transition to a more plant-strong diet, believes “we should all know that we have more power over our health than we have traditionally thought.”

“Women tend to be the decision makers of the family and definitely the ones who make the food choices,” she adds.

Amy Lemire, president and CEO of AIM Training and Consulting, is looking forward to speaking at what she anticipates will be “a day of empowerment, connecting, and advancing ourselves personally and professionally.”

Lemire will be speaking about her story from the book, “From Zero to Sales Hero: Keys to Owning Self Confidence.”

“I will share my story of how I overcame my challenges with self-confidence through mentors, personal/professional training, and lessons learned,” says Lemire.

Sandra Diver, MSW, LCSW, and Erin Poneiwaz, LPC, NCC, co-founders and lead therapists at Lumen Wellness & Counseling, will be discussing the importance of women prioritizing the mind/body connection to better their wellness.

“We are honored to participate in this event as it fits perfectly with our company’s mission — which is using our therapy, counseling and wellness services to bring about peace and fulfillment to women in our community,” says Diver.

“We truly hope that women attend with an open mind and open heart to learn how to better focus on themselves with Lumen Wellness & Counseling — and our shared community of women — by their side,” adds Poneiwaz.

For women on the fence about attending, Lemire offers a little motivation: “The pandemic reminded us of the importance of connecting with others. This is a great opportunity to do just that!”

St. Luke’s Pulmonologist To Serve His Community

Pulmonologist Thrilled Community

Dr. Bobby Shah describes working at St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield as a homecoming of sorts. The board-certified pulmonologist who earned his medical degree at the University of Missouri grew up in Chesterfield and attended Parkway Central High School.

“This is where I came when I was a kid. This is where my family came. This is where my dad came in 1995 in the middle of the night when he was having a heart attack. This was the hospital that saved his life,” says Shah. “St. Luke’s really does mean a lot to me. It means a lot to my family. One of my kids was born here.”

Community connections

When he was offered the chance to practice at his hometown hospital after completing his residency at the University of Illinois-Chicago School of Medicine and his fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Northwestern University, Shah jumped at the chance.

“It really meant a lot to me to come back and serve the community that I grew up in,” he says.

Today, after more than a decade at St. Luke’s, Shah counts among his patients many of the individuals who shaped his life growing up.

“I have patients that are parents of friends of mine. I have patients that are grandparents of friends of mine,” he says. “I have patients who were my former teachers. I’ve been fortunate enough to help some of the people that helped me as a kid develop a love for science and understanding of the needs of the community.”

Shah and his wife, a high-school teacher, have three children (ages nine, 12 and 14).

“We have a very busy life,” he says. “But we still try to put the needs of the community at the top of what we do every day as far as how we live our lives.”

One very important way Shah gives back is through serving on the executive board of the American Lung Association and acting as medical liaison for Lung Cancer Connection, a local nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness, increasing patient and caregiver support, and advocating for the prevention, early detection, treatment and research of lung cancer.

“Being involved with these organizations has really helped open my eyes to the number of people affected by lung disease and the broad reach of lung disease,” Shah says. “Lung Cancer Connection does a walk every year in Chesterfield — and when you see the number of people who come out, it’s amazing.”

A hopeful outlook for lung diseases

Shah’s practice serves mostly adults seeking treatment for respiratory lung issues. They typically come to him complaining of trouble breathing or coughing. Although trained in all aspects of pulmonary medicine, Shah has a special interest in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as early diagnosis and management of lung cancer.

COPD is a chronic condition with no cure, but Shah wants people to know “it doesn’t have to be a death


“When you look at the statistics, the rates for COPD are slowly going up,” says Shah. “But I think the most encouraging thing is that mortality or the death rate from COPD is steadily going down.”

Shah says, “there are ways to manage and cope with COPD where it doesn’t really hinder your life.”

“That’s the number one message I want people to understand when they’re facing COPD.”

Shah’s big push with lung cancer is screening and early awareness — and for good reason. According to the American Lung Association, if lung cancer is caught before it spreads, the likelihood of surviving five years or more improves to 60 percent.

“Despite the opportunity to screen people and make that diagnosis early, there is still a lack of understanding and knowledge of what that means — who’s eligible, when it should be done, how often it should be done,” Shah says.

Currently, the American Cancer Society recommends lung cancer screening for people 50-80 years old, who smoke or have quit in the past 15 years, and who have at least a 20-pack-year smoking history. (This is the number of packs of cigarettes per day times the number of years smoked.)

Educate yourself — but trust your doctor Shah says he’s seen an evolution in recent years of patients advocating for their own health care choices.

“People are feeling much more empowered to take some initiative when it comes to their own health care — which is great!” he says.

Shah is a big proponent of patients taking ownership of their health care, with a couple of caveats.

“Number one, I think trusting your physician is important. Physicians are not running for reelection. Our primary goal — our duty and our responsibility — is to help people stay healthy, get healthy and prevent them from getting sick. As empowered as we want people feel and as much as we want them to be educated and part of their care, we need them to understand that we do care about them and want what’s best for them.”

Secondly, Shah says patients, doctors and health care systems must embrace the fact that medicine is not perfect.

“We do the best we can with the information that’s available,” he says. “Whether that’s research or science or whatever the data shows at the time in terms of the disease — like the Covid outbreak in 2020 — we’re making decisions with the best information we have.”

A changing playbook

Shah often tells his patients to think of their health care as a team effort with everyone on the team — doctors, patients and the health care system — working toward the same goal.

“The playbook to get there is being rewritten constantly,” he adds, “but everybody on the team still has to be working toward the same goal. That really does

26 Out & About | April-June 2023 @chesterfieldmochamber

require that we all accept that there are going to be new challenges.”

Shah assures patients that doctors constantly strive to keep up with the latest research and treatment options through medical journals and ongoing training, education and certification requirements.

“We’re trained in medicine to constantly be looking for that research and that evidence whenever a patient or a question or a condition comes along that’s a little puzzling,” he says. “It’s humbling, but it’s educational — and we try to learn from everything that we see and everything that we encounter with a patient.”

Holistic care

Shah says being a slightly smaller hospital offers St. Luke’s some unique advantages when it comes to holistic patient care.

“We have much quicker access to be able to communicate with physicians of other specialties,” he says.

“In the lung cancer world, we are constantly talking to our surgeons and our oncologists, before making any major decisions or recommendations for patients. Lung cancer care is highly coordinated. Before that diagnosis is even made, we want to make sure that all the physicians who could potentially be involved are all on the same page.”

Even with all the experts in the room, Shah reiterates: “Health care is complex, and we all have to work toward the same goal.”

Patients can play a significant role in their own lung health, Shah says, by “getting back to the basics.”

“I tell people all the time that sometimes the answer is not with an inhaler or at the bottom of a pill bottle,” says Shah. “Sometimes, the answer is just healthy living. Exercise. Nutrition. Weight loss. Healthy living has to be at the foundation of treatment for any chronic condition.”

One more doctor’s order?

“We would love them to trust us, too,” he says.

4 Hands and Hi-Pointe Coming to The District

After 11 years in downtown St. Louis, the popular craft brewery has announced the opening of its second location at The District entertainment center in Chesterfield Valley.

The newest 4 Hands will feature a 10,000-squarefoot tasting room with 25 draft offerings, including yearround and seasonal beers and hard seltzers, 1220 Spirits cocktails and Withered Oak blended whiskey. The Chesterfield location also will include a family friendly arcade area, a private event space with an oversized patio and a kitchen serving food from another local favorite, HiPointe Drive-In.

Opening a location in Chesterfield is an especially sweet homecoming for 4 Hands founder Kevin Lemp.

“I’m excited to expand westward not only because The Staenberg Group is creating a one-of-a-kind, family friendly experience in Chesterfield, but also because I grew up in the area and it feels good to open a location back in my childhood neighborhood,” says Lemp. “While we remain hyper passionate and committed to the city of St. Louis, this opportunity fits perfectly with our growth strategy.”

That growth strategy includes expanding 4 Hands’ LaSalle Park location in the city and opening a third location in Kirkwood. Both projects are currently underway. Lemp has been partnering with Hi-Pointe coowner Ben Hillman for years.

“We’re excited to bring the Hi-Pointe energy to Chesterfield,” Hillman says. “We’ve been collaborating with Kevin and the 4 Hands teams since we started HiPointe, and we’re ready to take the partnership to the next level in a shared space. Chesterfield should get ready for some crazy specials paired with the best beer in St. Louis.”

Emily Ackley, leasing agent for The Staenberg Group, says 4 Hands and Hi-Pointe are just a hint of what’s to come at The District.

“What we’re really focusing on creating at The District is bringing together some really unique restaurant choices, all in on spot,” she says. “As a couple of St. Louis favorites, Kevin and Ben are the first pillars in that. My job is filling in the immediate neighbors around them.”

While Ackley has no immediate announcements about who those neighbors might be when The District is fully leased, she says “the conversations that are happening are very exciting.”

4 Hands will anchor The Hub, The Staenberg Group’s $4 million centerpiece of The District. This outdoor event and gathering space will feature a pavilion, LED screen and stage. Its turf viewing field will be surrounded by sitdown restaurants and outdoor patios.

The Hub is expected to be complete later this spring, and 4 Hands is on track to open in July.

Educating the Public to Reduce Fire and Safety Risks

Faced with a growing — and aging — population and charged with leading a fire district that fielded nearly 9,000 emergency incident response calls in 2022, Chief Russ Adams is on a mission.

“We’re trying to help those we serve live more safely,” says Adams, who was promoted to Monarch’s top post this past November after serving the fire district for more than 30 years.

“We are the first responders to most community emergencies,” he adds. “Safety education is about helping our community get in front of those emergencies — preventing them before they happen.”

Prioritizing community risk reduction

Monarch has always taught fire and life safety in schools, elder-care facilities, businesses and homes, but the district has now prioritized safety education by creating a new role dedicated to it.

Joseph Ruhl, a firefighter paramedic with the district for almost nine years, has taken on the newly created position of public education specialist. Ruhl’s job extends beyond fire safety to encompass community risk reduction. This includes seasonal education on topics ranging from fireworks safety on July 4th and the dangers of shoveling your driveway during winter months, to warnings not to leave unattended candles burning on Valentine’s Day.

No matter the season, slips, trips and falls are the number one category of calls the district receives — and Adams sees safety education as an opportunity to prevent them.

“If we respond to a call for slips and falls at an elder-care facility, there’s a cause for that,” says Adams. “That cause may be something as simple as the resident using rugs without a rubber backing — and as soon as somebody hits the rug, the rug slides and they fall.”

“That’s community risk reduction,” Adams explains. “We want to reduce the risk of your house burning down. But we also want to reduce the risk of your mother or father falling because their living environment isn’t safe.”

Fire Marshal Jim McKay says a big part of community education is “forming partnerships with eldercare facilities so the facilities and residents know the resources we have and what we can do to make their life easier and safer.”

The goal is reducing preventable accidents.

A catchall for emergency calls

Currently, Monarch has four ambulances and six fire trucks working out of five firehouses, all of which are

staffed with licensed paramedics. Effectively deploying the district’s resources in the 63-square-mile area that Monarch serves, which includes Chesterfield, Wildwood, Ballwin, Clarkson Valley, Creve Coeur, Maryland Heights and unincorporated St. Louis County, is one of the new chief’s top priorities.

“We’ll respond to any call we receive, and we will always have our critical calls such as cardiac arrests and automobile accidents,” says McKay. “But if we can teach our community how to live more safely, reducing their risk of injury due to a slip, trip or fall — that’s a win for everyone.”

Residents in the seven municipalities Monarch serves may not know it, but almost every single 911 call is fielded by Monarch Fire Protection District.

“When people pick up the phone and call 911 for whatever reason, we respond,” says Adams. Many of those calls have nothing to do with fire. People call with flooded basements, busted pipes and gas leaks. Basically, if people have a problem and don’t know what to do, they dial 911.

“Our job when we arrive on scene is to figure out how to fix the problem. It might not be in our normal job title, but that’s what we do. We take care of whatever is needed,” says Ruhl.

A growing population

Emergency calls predictably increase as the population continues to grow.

“We expect the new development around Chesterfield Mall and in the valley to add more than 10,000 to the local population,” says McKay.

But people moving into the area isn’t the fire district’s only focus.

“Part of the new area around the mall and in the Chesterfield Valley is also going to include entertainment,” says Adams.

This creates an influx of people coming from

outside Monarch’s service area into Chesterfield to eat, drink and be entertained.

The valley is also home to Chesterfield Valley Athletic Complex, which brings in more than a million visitors annually who take part in youth sports and tournaments. Currently under construction, the Chesterfield Sports Complex is a 97,000-square-foot athletic fieldhouse for indoor volleyball and basketball. The new venue, on track to open in 2023, is expected to attract an additional 900,000 visitors to the region each year.

“That whole valley’s just booming with potential out-of-towners along with the local population,” says Ruhl.

Acting fast is critical

As building and fire codes have grown through the years, it may seem surprising that newer materials in homes have become increasingly flammable. In 2020, the Underwriters Laboratory Fire Safety Research Institute (FSRI) staged a side-by-side comparison of natural versus synthetic furnished rooms. When ignited with a small open flame, the room furnished with synthetic materials reached “flashover,” the point at which fire engulfs the entire space, in a little over three minutes. The room outfitted with natural materials, such as wood and cotton, took about 30 minutes to flashover.

FSRI used the results of its experiments to drive awareness of how little time there is to escape a home fire, urging people to prepare by having working smoke alarms, an escape plan and closing bedroom doors before going to bed at night. Closing doors provides an effective barrier to slow the spread of flames and smoke, giving firefighters crucial time to respond.

“It makes a huge difference — and it buys time for us to get to the people,” says Ruhl.

When a home fire strikes, every second counts.

“I’ve seen rooms go up in a minute and a half,” says McKay. “If you’re in the house and the smoke detector goes off — it’s time to leave.”

Time to response is critical in any emergency, and residents can help by acting fast.

“The number one safety tip is to call the fire department immediately,” says Adams. “Then do CPR or get out your fire extinguisher.”

Children of Chesterfield

Children played an important role in making Chesterfield farms successful. They were assigned chores from an early age, such as feeding the chickens and pigs, gathering eggs and mucking stalls. Older boys helped with the planting and harvesting; while the girls assisted in cooking, cleaning and laundry. These children also attended the one-room schoolhouse closest to their homes. But life on a Chesterfield farm was not all work. Children had plenty of carefree time to ride their mules, horses or bicycles, to play games, to swim in nearby creeks, or simply to roam around the neighborhood. The love and pride of Chesterfield parents is exemplified by the many professional photographs and candid snapshots seen below. The children in these photos appear to be well cared for, happy and healthy. Although some of these children left Chesterfield when they grew up, many of them chose to continue in their families’ businesses.
