A note from the president
Hello friends!

Congratulations to the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce and Catholic Charities for hosting two wildly successful events last night. We were honored to attend.

I have an ask for all of you this week. Downtown Saint Paul needs your help! In order to offer the best experience for people who live, work and visit downtown Saint Paul, the Saint Paul Downtown Alliance is conducting a survey to understand the needs of people like you. Your opinion matters and will help shape the future of the downtown area. 
The survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete. In appreciation for completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to win a prize package that includes two suite tickets for the Minnesota Wild Game January 19; complimentary wine, beer, and snacks in the suite; and one official, team-signed, Minnesota Wild Jersey. To qualify for the prize package, you must complete the survey by 12/21. 

See you all around (down)town,

Joe Spencer

Kicking off this week and running Thursday and Friday evenings through the end of the month, the Science Museum is brightening the dark days of December for the second year of Illumination. Events are family friendly and included with museum admission. Make glow-in-the-dark slime, explore the glowing museum, sip custom brews and more!

Redpath puts its stamp on downtown Saint Paul
If you've walked through the Central Business District over the last few weeks, you may have noticed your view changed. Redpath and Company accounting firm moved downtown to the Alliance Bank building in 2014, where they've since added two additional floors,  and on October 30 th they made their bright green mark on downtown. "The Redpath and Company signage is another element that displays our commitment to the downtown St. Paul business environment," says Sean Sullivan, marketing director for Redpath. We couldn't be more excited about it. Congrats, Redpath!
