Dr. Alfred Egan, leading spiritualist of the Arkham Theosophical Society in Massachusetts has halted The Internet Players production of their Haunted House due to apparent paranormal activity and concerns for the safety of their student volunteers.

Dr. Egan’s investigations will include a series of public séances expected to determine the magnitude of activity currently present in historic Hibernian Hall. The séances will be open to all interested as a way to compensate for lost revenue.

Curator Ron Bellamy has agreed to host guided tours of the Haunted Hibernian Hall for a first-time ever glimpse into the secrets harbored in this historic building. The tour will last approximately 30 minutes.

Tickets will be extremely limited, so get yours now! Tickets may still be available at the door.


Thursday October 20th- Sunday, October 23rd, 8pm to 11pm

Thursday, October 27th- Monday, October 31st, 8pm to 11pm

Bettendorf — Come in costume and celebrate the fall season! On Sunday, October 23, from noon – 5:00 PM the Family Museum’s annual event, Scarecrow Shenanigans, returns this year with even more kooky, spooky, and ooky activities. Almost every gallery and room in the Museum will be filled with art activities, games, and science projects.

In the Museum’s Great Hall visitors will construct haunted houses, play Halloween games, and grab a quick snack. The Family Museum Gallery will get a spooky make-over, including a one-day-only spooky change to the virtual pond in the PlayHouse area. Inside the Gallery there will be monster crafts, masks, and human “body parts” to touch. Visitors are also invited upstairs to make snot out of common household items and to dissect real eyeballs. And new this year: there will be horse drawn hayrack rides!

Tickets are free for Family Museum members and $8.00 each for the general public.  Tickets are limited and going fast, so get yours today.  Everyone must have a ticket to enter – even Museum members. For more information please call (563) 344-4106, or visit www.familymuseum.org.  Scarecrow Shenanigans is sponsored by The Family Credit Union.

1.  Cindy Sadlek will lead a discussion of the American philosopher Ken Wilber's book The Integral Vision:  a very short introduction to the Revolutionary Integral Approach to Life, God, the Universe, and Everything beginning Wednesday, October 12 and continuing October19th and 26th, in the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 3707 Eastern Ave., Davenport.  It is offered both at 10:30 am and 7 pm.  To register, contact the church secretary, Stephanie Lanoo, at 563 359 0816.

Wilber asks:  What if we attempted to find the critically essential keys to human growth, based on the sum total of human knowledge now open to us? His answer is a kind of meta-structure of human experience and, more importantly, human potential. His Integral Map, or Integral Operating System (IOS), is drawn from developmental psychology, worldviews, multiple intelligences, gender studies, the nature of consciousness, etc. Wilber asserts that the IOS approach to life permits all fields of endeavor at last to speak with one another in a common language. Clearly, however, spirituality dominates much of his thought. Wilber's work is still accessible and at times surprisingly practical. Some language spirals up majestically, recalling great Eastern texts. Reminiscent in spirit and watershed import of Ram Dass's Be Here Now, Wilber's work may well become a popular classic for explorers on the frontiers of humanity.

2.  Kathleen Lawless Cox, former poet laureate of the Quad Cities, will present a workshop on writing poetry related to nature and spirituality on Saturday
morning, October 15, from 9 am to noon in the Social Hall of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 3707 Eastern Avenue, Davenport. It will include
readings of poetry of Kabir, Mary Oliver, Pablo Neruda, Whitman and others. There will be discussion of the content, techniques and emotional and
intellectual responses to the poems, the connections and reflections the words arouse as participants come face to face with nature.  The workshop will include writing time and time to share poems by participants.  To register, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
