The   German   American   Heritage   Center   presents local educator Bruce Bufe in the first of a series on personal family immigration histories called “My German Story.”  This program features the life and times of Franz Gustav Bufe, a German immigrant cigar maker in   Moline   in the l880’s.  He was also an artist, a poet, and a keen social critic of his time.  Come experience his poems in translation and explore the themes and views of a common man with an uncommon talent for self-expression. This program is re-scheduled from a spring emergency cancellation. 

Members free; public welcome with $5.00 admission; includes museum exhibits.
