Press release submitted by Wally Harkert


Greetings Community Residents

My name is, Wally Harkert and I'm with the Rock Island Moose Lodge 190, located at 4410 – 9th St. Rock Island. We would like to cordially invite you to the Lodge, on January 26th, 2013, for an informal Town Hall Meeting. This meeting is to inform the community residents of what the Fraternal Loyal Order of the Moose is all about. Our International Slogan for this year is," Heard of Moose", and many people have not, we would like to change that. We will explain what we support, community service events we do, and what we can offer for all. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at wlhrte6@yahoo.com. I have listed some useful information about our events we have planned for that whole day, below.

  Today is Thursday, Oct. 2, the 275th day of 2014. There are 90 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The ladies have adopted the fashion of wearing representations of insects in the flowers on their bonnets. Some look very natural.
1889 -- 125 years ago: T.F. Cary, former Rock Island alderman, has accepted a position as salesman for a Chicago wallpaper house and plans to move to that city.
1914 -- 100 years ago: Work on the new telephone building on 18th Street between 6th and 7th avenues is progressing rapidly.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Rock Island's new theater at 3rd Avenue and 19th Street will have a name significant of its location. The "Rocket" is scheduled to open Thanksgiving Day.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Two of Rock Island's newest water towers were vandalized last night, including the one at 38th Street and 31st Avenue, where police took five Moline boys into custody about 9 p.m..
1989 -- 25 years ago: Some of us who live in the Quad-Cities take the Mississippi River for granted, or at least we used to. But the river is not taken for granted by our visitors. And most Quad-Citians are realizing the importance of the river to this area as increased emphasis is placed on tourism.
