Press release submitted by Quad City Botanical Center.

Quad City Botanical Center, 2525 4th Ave. Rock Island, will hold an Accessory Swap Meet, 6:30 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22.
Recycle, reuse and look fabulous doing it. Every girl has an array of great accessories in her closet that she never wears. Here's your chance to swap them for new ones, you will wear.
Pay $10 per person at the door, and 100% of the door fee will be used to help support the mission of the nonprofit Botanical Center.
Bring in never used or gently used purses, totes, costume jewelry, scarves, gloves, hats or any kind of accessory without a numbered size to the Botanical Center at 6:30 p.m. (limit 10 items per person please). We will take your items and give you a ticket for each of them. Enjoy a cocktail (cash bar) as you mingle with friends. While you are enjoying all the beauty the Sun Garden has to offer on a cold winter's night, we will be busy transforming the banquet room of the Botanical Center into a shoppers' paradise.
At 7 p.m. the doors of the banquet room will open and participants will be able to redeem tickets for new to you items (one ticket equals one new item). Participants must be at the center at 6:30 p.m.
For information, call Beth 309-794-0991 x 30

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
