"Senior Light Tour"

The holiday season is here! One of the annual high-lights for our senior citizens has been the Senior Light Tour; a Police escorted bus tour of selected neighborhoods featuring sensational holiday lighting and decorations.

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.

This year's Senior Light Tour will be on Tuesday, December 11th, 2012. Busses will arrive at CASI, (Center for Active Seniors, Inc. 1035 W. Kimberly Road, Davenport, Iowa) at 6:15 PM and begin boarding at that time. The Senior Light Tour will start no later than 7:00 PM.
