It’s Official! Whistlestop Cafe is Re-Opening!!!

Welcome to Matt and Samantha Kohler who closed on the Whistlestop on January 11!! Make sure you’re following their Facebook page for updates as they come! There’s going to be some menu additions, and new and improved outdoor deck and an official re-opening celebration! You’re not going to want to miss it!!!

The Whistle Stop, one of Ferguson’s first landmarks located at 1 Carson Rd, Ferguson, MO 63135, is reopening its doors spring/summer 2017.

The Whistle Stop is a historical frozen custard shop and museum, located in the restored Ferguson Depot. They closed their doors on October 15, 2016, saddening lots of customers. This spring/summer we can expect new additions including the expansion of the outdoor deck, new food items and restored historical artifacts. “Our intensions are to preserve the meaning of what the Whistle Stop means to the community and to preserve the prominent landmark for generations to come,” said Matt Kohler.

Born and raised in Ferguson, Matt Kohler currently serves as a real-estate agent for Keller Williams Realty in Chesterfield, MO.

St. Louis Dazzling Diamonds Dance Company

St. Louis Dazzling Diamonds Dance Company

Meanwhile, we have some Dazzling Diamonds among us! The St. Louis Dazzling Diamonds Dance Company (STLDDC) is a traveling, competitive, trophy award winning majorette dance team, founded by Naomi Ashby and DeAndre Isom. STLDDC’s mission statement is: “The St. Louis Dazzling Diamonds Dance Company’s Mission is to educate, inspire and instill principles of teamwork through the love of dance and cultivate it into a passion for a purposeful life.”

In addition to competing, STLDDC performs at community events, volunteer productions, fashion shows, sporting events, parades, birthday parties, charity events, and showcases. More than eighty-five kids (predominantly girls, but boys are welcome) practice every day at 48 S. Florissant, rehearsing Monday through Friday, 6-9 p.m. and Saturday, 9-5 p.m. They have been featured on the t.v. show “Bringit!” When asked why they have set up their location in Ferguson, Ms. Ashby said, “So many of our children who participate in our dance programs live right in this area.” STLDDC is currently raising funds for a dance floor. They have visions of expanding their programs beyond dance to agriculture and arts, having kids grow gardens and learn to cook what they grow. They will start offering programs for adults in the near future. STLDDC will open to the public in February 2017.
