Come Home to the Country

Time for Tots Preschool will host the 25th Annual "Home to the Country" Craft Show on Saturday, November 12, 2011. The event will be held at the Alwood Elementary School located in Alpha from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Admission to the show is $1.00 with proceeds from the entire craft show going to the Time for Tots program.

We have something for everyone! We have a wide range of craft booths from several vendors throughout the Quad Cities and surrounding area, raffle tickets, concession stand, plus much more!

The "Country Kitchen" will be open for breakfast and lunch during the craft show. Time for Tots has become famous for our delicious chicken salad sandwiches, and this year should be no different.

Established in 1973, Time for Tots Preschool is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing children and parents with quality education and services.


Local events heading

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
