5K to support music education in Illinois Quad-Cities to be held October 20

3rd Annual Louie Bellson 5K Memorial Benefiting Illinois Quad-Cities Music Education to be held October 20

Moline, IL – On October 20, 2012, the 3rd Annual Louie Bellson 5K Memorial Drum Roll will be held to raise support for music education in the Illinois Quad-Cities. The run/walk race will begin at 9:00 a.m. from the Moline High School west parking lot. The race honors Moline-native jazz legend. Proceeds go to support music programs in Moline Public Schools.

WHAT: 3rd Annual Louie Bellson 5K Memorial Drum Roll

WHEN: October 20, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. CDT

WHERE: Moline High School (west parking lot)

TO REGISTER: Interested runners and walkers should submit a race application or email bellsonmemorial5k@gmail.com. Registration fee before October 15 is $20; paid on the day of the race is $25.

WHY: Students involved in music education are more likely to succeed in other subject areas, stay in school, and learn important vocational skills such as working in teams, communication, and creative thinking. In spite of these benefits, nearly 50 percent of secondary schools and 20 percent of elementary schools rely on non-district sources for music program fundings. The Louie Bellson 5K Drum Roll Run was established in 2010 to help meet this need in the Illinois Quad-Cities area.

  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.
