Saturday, Sept. 14

Noon – 5:00 p.m. (with the last tour leaving at 3:00 p.m.)

Adults - $5

Children 12 and under – Free

Step into the past during Forget-Me-Not Victorian Day 2013 at Oakdale Memorial Gardens as we commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War.

This year’s Victorian Day will highlight those who fought in the Civil War or were deeply  affected by the war. Take a stroll through the grounds of this magnificent garden cemetery and hear the stories of soldiers, sailors, freed slaves, musicians and more as told by Oakdale’s “residents” themselves.

Victorian Day will include:

• Guided tours

• First-hand accounts of the past as told by Oakdale “residents”

• Guest speaker Minda Powers-Douglas, author of “Cemetery Walk” and “Translating Tombstones”

• Representatives of various local historical societies

• One-man, one act play MR. U. S. GRANT: A MAN AND A PATRIOT by Dan Haughey at 4:00 p.m.

Victorian Day at Oakdale is a family-friendly event. All proceeds go to the Friends of Oakdale for grounds improvements, including more handicapped accessibility, gravestone resetting and clean-up, and the removal of tree stumps.

Guests are reminded to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring sunscreen. Parking is free.

There is no rain date; in case of light rain, call to verify if event will be held.

Established in 1857, Oakdale Memorial Gardens is a treasure trove of history and natural beauty.  It is one of the Quad Cities’ oldest and most beautiful cemeteries, boasting century-old oak trees, gently rolling hills and knolls, and a reflecting pond near the cemetery entrance.

For more information about the event, contact Oakdale’s office manager Deb Williams.

Skip-a-Long Child Development Services, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable care to all children in the Quad Cities, will celebrate a milestone this week.

Our Trinity School of Nursing location will celebrate ten years of providing Nationally Accredited, Quality Rated child care to the children of the community. It will be a bittersweet celebration, however, since the hospital will be expanding its Health Education program and announced in March of 2013 that it would close the center by August 31.

We invite all members of the community, especially past and current families of the Trinity Skip-a-Long location, to join us for food, fun, and games – it will be a farewell to remember!

WHAT: Skip-a-Long Trinity Campus’ Tenth Birthday/Farewell Party

WHERE: Skip-a-Long Child Development Services, 2122 25th Ave., Rock Island, IL

WHEN: Friday, August 9, from 3:00pm to 6:00pm
