Fulton – FACE (Fulton Association for Community Enrichment) has grant money available to help local organizations put their vision of Fulton to work in 2013.

2013 will be the start of changes to the FACE grants. The focus in 2013 is "Improving the quality of life for Fulton's children." Organizations with projects that focus on enhancing the lives of young people will be given priority. In 2014, FACE plans to encourage local organizations to work together by offering grants to cooperating groups.

Grants in 2013 are available for up to $1000 for charitable and nonprofit projects. Local organizations interested in being considered for a grant in 2013 should complete a grant request and return it to: FACE, PO Box 292, Fulton, IL 61252. Grant applications can be acquired by contacting Heidi Kolk at hkolk@hotmail.com. All grant applications need to be received by FACE by May 24, 2013.

FACE's mission is to serve as a philanthropic leader, catalyst, and resource to improve the quality of life in the Fulton community. The grants FACE makes are made possible because of the generous donations by area patrons. The success of FACE programs depends on the contributions of many individual citizens. Anyone interested in learning more about how they can support community efforts through FACE should contact Connie Koehn at rhkoehn1@mchsi.com.
FACE is an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend.

  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.
