Press release submitted by Quad City Health Initiative

You are invited to the Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics Community Show at the Nighswander Junior Theater @ Annie Wittenmeyer, 2815 Eastern Ave., Davenport on Tuesday, October 23 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The QC Hearts and Minds Youth Workgroup of the Quad City Health Initiative is proud to be partnering with the Rock Island County Regional Office of Education and Scott County Kids to bring the Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics theater program to our local schools.

During the week of October 22nd, the Stand Up! cast will give multiple performances of its 55-minute live prevention theater program to high school students across our community. Presented by the R.Ed.I Arts and Education Foundation, the program provides information, hope and help for youth in managing issues they experience during adolescence.

Performances of Stand Up! provide a great opportunity for teens and adults to have open discussions about issues facing youth today. The Youth Workgroup hopes this program helps to identify and assist kids with mental and behavioral health concerns. We've arranged for a special performance of Stand Up! to be given for community members and other school personnel/high-school students who would also like to experience this fantastic program live.

We invite you to join us for the Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics Community Show at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23rd in the Nighswander Junior Theater in Davenport. The performance is free.

Questions about the event may be directed to Nicole Carkner, Executive Director, Quad City Health Initiative at 563-421-2815. We acknowledge and thank the following sponsors who have provided financial support for this project including: Edgerton Women's Health Center, Quad City Bank & Trust, Rock Island County Juvenile Court Services, Scott County Regional Authority and United Way of the Quad Cities Area. We look forward to seeing you at the theater!

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.
