Please volunteer or help recruit volunteers for the LeClaire Information Center! We get a lot of great comments about the LIC, and we help promote all of LeClaire:
1. Through telling visitors about our great attractions, shops, restaurants, parks, schools, housing developments, etc.,
2. By mailing out information to individuals, small groups and bus tours who want to come find out what LeClaire is all about, and
3. Through providing nice, convenient public restrooms to shoppers, diners, people checking out our attractions, families, LeClaire residents who are just out for a walk - everyone appreciates the restrooms!
Almost everyone knows at least one person who loves to talk and meet new people - a retired neighbor or stay-at-home mom, a relative, a friend, a person from church, a person from your civic club, a person from exercise class... Please contact Cindy at 563-650-7963 or
Volunteers are trained and there is lots of brochures and information to share with visitors.
Let's make downtown LeClaire and the LeClaire Information Center the best it can possibly be!
