Press release submitted by Fulton Chamber of Commerce


The volunteer educators at Fulton's Windmill Cultural Center will begin youth tours in April 2013. This year's theme is "Wheels Around the World." Visitors will learn about traveling across Europe using different modes of transportation, with a cultural and science emphasis adapted to each grade level.
School children will visit four stations in Fulton's windmill area, two at the Windmill Cultural Center and two at the Windmill. Tours last one-hour.
The curriculum is adaptable to ages 6 through adulthood and is open not only to school groups, but to other youth organizations. Groups should have one adult sponsor for every ten children. The maximum of 50 students per hour will be offered weekdays at 10:00am, 11:30am, and 1:00pm, April through October. A suggested donation of $1.00 per student is asked to go towards operations and enhancement of the windmill area.
Reservations must be made with Heather Bennett at 815 589 4545 or chamber@cityoffulton.us No groups will be scheduled on Friday of Dutch Days, May 3.





















 



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.
