The Moline Preservation Society will meet April 23 for dinner and tour of two downtown Moline buildings. At 6:00p.m. the society will meet at LeMekong, 1606-5th Avenue, Moline for dinner off the menu. We will see and hear about the changes the Pham family have made to their restaurant. After dinner we will cross 5th Avenue and visit The Planning Center in the former Grant building. It will give us a chance to marvel at the chance to the building. The latest information about our "Save the Moline Depot" campaign and the depot's move to Western Illinois University campus on River Drive will also be discussed. RSVP for dinner reservations to 762-3058 by April 22.
