Every one of us knows why we came to Ferguson. We saw Ferguson as a community that had it all. Stately homes, a vibrant downtown, convenient location, and a down home feel. Ferguson became your community because you made it the place you wanted to live. We can’t slow down. We need to pick up the pace and show all of North County, all of St. Louis County, St. Louis City, and all of the surrounding counties, that Ferguson can bounce back and become the example of what a community’s citizens can do to make their city theirs.

Make the Commitment; Ferguson needs You!

And don’t forget to bring along a friend.
