Hope Creek Care Center, the Rock Island County owned and operated 245 bed skilled nursing facility is planning a fabulous trivia night fundraiser coming up on Saturday November 17th, 2012! The facility's management staff in conjunction with AFSCME Local 2371 have joined forces to plan this very special event as a way to raise monies for much needed hi-low beds for the residents. Each bed costs approximately $2000, so the goal has been set high to purchase several beds to help the residents live more comfortably and safely.

The Trivia Night Fundraiser will be held at the UAW Local 865 Richard Shoemaker Hall located at 630-19th Street in East Moline. Doors will open at 6:00pm. with trivia beginning at 7:00pm. Reservations for tables of eight players to make a team are being accepted by calling (309) 796-6600. Cost for a team/table of eight is $80.00. Don't have a team, don't worry. Individual players who would like to be placed on a team can also sign up for a cost of $10.00.

The night will also include basket raffles, food, celebrity judges and lots of fun! Monetary donations and sponsorships are also being accepted. Please contact Administrator Trudy Whittington for further details. Hope Creek Care Center is a not-for-profit facility and all donations to this event are tax deductible.

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.
