Hello!

Yet another exciting week downtown includes the opening of four outer space exhibits at the Figge Art Museum!  NASA | Art: 50 years of Exploration features pieces from NASA's collection and the National Air and Space Museum.  Blast Off! - Studio 1 allows the little ones to do what NASA did: be inspired by outer space and create!

 

Exploring NASA lights up the night sky with a one-of-a-kind projection of images on the western exterior of the Figge building. The University of Iowa is considered a pioneer of space research; the fourth exhibit will explore the past 54 years of exploration and the university's role in it. Other events at the museum include Fridays at the Figge, Drawing Naturescapes, and Art in the Middle.

 

Interested in beer AND science?  The German American Heritage Center is hosting speaker Brad Sturgeon, a home brewer and certified taster, to guide attendees through the chemistry of brewing with the enjoyment of samples along the way!  Also, stop by Modern Woodmen Park on Wednesday to see the Bandits host the Lake County Captains on another Pay Your Bill Wednesday!

 

Guy Penrod brings his new, number one album to the Adler Theatre on Friday night.  The 2011 Texas Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee spent fourteen years with the Grammy and Dove award-winning Gaither Vocal Band before making his Grand Ole Opry debut as a solo artist last year.  Also, don't forget that the Bix Beiderbecke Jazz Festival is right around the corner and tickets are on sale now!

 

HAYWYRE and MINDSPYK perform with Ghost Science in the Redstone Room on Saturday night.  These unique artists bring a flavor of hip-hop, dubstep, and electronica to the River Music Experience.  The RME live lunch series this week features Sweet Wednesday, Tony Hoeppner, Dave Smith, and Randy Leasman.  Improve your own musical chops with Songwriters in the Round, Acoustic Music Club, and Open Mic Night.

 

Tammy McCann headlines Polyrhythms Third Sunday Jazz Workshop and Matinee series this week.  McCann has toured with Ray Charles along with her gospel group.  More shows at RME this week include Friday Live at 5, You Knew Me When with Emjay, Rock Camp USA Concert - Session 2, Bella Soul, The Milltown Wranglers, and the Quad City KIX Band, who will also perform at Music on the Levee.

 

Cool off with Public Skates at River's Edge Friday through Wednesday and beat the heat!  Also, Heartland Jam is coming up on July 20 and 21; look for information regarding the festival in next week's newsletter.

 

See you downtown!

LOCAL CHURCH CONNECTION HOSTS BLOCK PARTY IN CONJUNCTION WITH SCHOOL SUPPLY GIVEAWAY PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Jason Holtgrewe   
Thursday, 12 July 2012 13:55
On July 21, 2012, Connection Church throws a party. In effort to build neighborhood community and to help kids in need, Connection will host a Block Party featuring free food, fun games, and a school supply giveaway.

At 4pm the party begins with free food and exciting games. Two inflatable bouncers, a dunk tank, a photo booth and other games, as well as a free raffle for an iPod and passes to Splash Landing and Niabi Zoo will provide a fun, family-friendly evening. Walking tacos, popcorn, and snow cones will be available for free to eat.

Besides having fun, the Block Party will be an opportunity to give backpacks and school supplies to kids in need. Last year’s party saw 40 kids receive backpacks and school supplies; this year, the goal is to give away even more.

Jason Holtgrewe, a pastor at Connection, believes the Block Party is a great way to help those in need. “Not only is this party a way to bring neighbors together for a little fun, it’s also an opportunity to be there for others,” says Jason. “There are more families in our city than we realize who need help meeting the financial demands of  another school year.”

Quad City families wanting school supplies are encouraged to call Connection at 563-355-0919 before the day of the party. Those who don’t call can still receive supplies, but please know, they’ll be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis.

Connection is throwing a party and giving away school supplies on July 21st 4-7pm. The location of the party is 4374 State Street, Bettendorf. Please call 563-355-0919 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.
