Thanks to the great contributions from members of our community and this year's sponsors, Durham Bus Service, CASI, Quad City Times Plus 60, Mid-American Energy, the Davenport Police Department, the Davenport Police Association and the Union of Professional Police, a grand tour is planned that is sure to be an enjoyment to our Senior Citizens who grace us with their attendance.
