Press release submtited by City of Davenport

Please mark your calendars and join us for an upcoming Halloween tradition at Credit Island. Join Mayor Gluba, First Ward Alderman Nate Brown and Friends of Credit Island for the 4th Annual Credit Island Haunted Island this Thursday, October 11 at 5:30 p.m. as the festivities get underway.

Alderman Brown tells me that there will be a lighting of the bonfire and there will be "christening" of the new trailer that was funded by the Riverboat Development Authority (RDA). I understand that the "christening" will be a unique event called a "pumpkining" where pumpkins will be broken against the trailer.

The trailer is an important addition to the event. It is handicapped accessible and will be used to provide rides to attendees of the Adaptive and Inclusive Dance that is being held at the lodge.

I am including a flyer of the weekend event and activities. As you know, many volunteers work long hours to put together this community event. The proceeds benefit Credit Island. Alderman Brown is your contact.

We look forward to you joining us as Halloween festivities get underway in Davenport.

As always if you have any questions please call. Enjoy your evening.






















 



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.
