IL/IA QUAD CITIES – To celebrate the glory that is the mustache and raise money for the Child Abuse Council, kick-off parties are being held in connection with KJ's Mustache Challenge.

The Mustache Challenge is a local event where participants resist shaving from Thanksgiving until December 22, collecting donations along the way, culminating with The Mustache Challenge's Pub Crawl on December 22.

The kick-off parties are being held on Thursday, October 11, at The Landing, Moline, and October 18 at Pints, Davenport, starting at 5:30 p.m. The public is invited.

All donations will benefit the Child Abuse Council's "Talking About Touching" program, which teaches young children about appropriate and inappropriate touch and what to do if inappropriate touching takes place.

Pledge sheet pick-up and donations are welcome and encouraged at the kick-off parties, or online at www.kjmustachechallenge.org, or www.childabuseqc.org.






















 



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.
