The folks at Buffalo Bill Museum hope to see you over the holidays! It is a great place to take visiting family and friends and “free admission” is a benefit of your membership! The gift shop is also a great place to pick up unique items for children’s stockings, as well as books about local history, “Buffalo Bill” sweatshirts and t-shirts, and other items you can’t find elsewhere!  The museum is open daily 9am to 4pm, and Sundays 12noon to 4pm.

From all at Wide River Winery - During the Holiday Season, more than ever, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made our progress possible. And in this spirit we say, simply but sincerely Thank you and Merry Christmas. Best Wishes for the Holiday Season & a prosperous Happy New Year.

Warm regards, Dorothy, Ann, Kyle, Martha, Paul, Christy, Mary, Char, Reagan, Dave, Abby, Patrick, Alisha, Barb & Brenda.

During the past weeks the employees of Ascentra have been busy brightening people’s lives with random acts of kindness as part of their “Steppin’ Up: Paying it Forward” Program.  Over 70 staff members were given $50 each to use in any way they saw fit to help out and surprise any individual or organization of their choice.  The acts range from paying for a stranger’s cup of coffee, to multiplying the money by organizing and purchasing supplies for a fundraiser benefiting the Quad Cities Greyhound Association. One employee donated gloves, hats, socks and blankets to The Center in Davenport . A group from the Bettendorf branch put their money together and surprised Family Resources in Davenport with food baskets and turkeys that fed over 60 families at their domestic violence shelter. Senior Account Officer Jeff Gerstel used the opportunity as a teachable moment for his 6-year-old daughter who suggested the money go to a park and together they surprised the Moline Community Development Corporation with a check to help Moline ’s Riverside Park get new playground equipment.  Similar acts of kindness took place in Muscatine and Clinton .  See these stories and more at Ascentra’s Facebook page at facebook.com/Ascentra.
