Have you heard the news? Downtown Davenport had a banner year for economic development$24M in projects were completed this year, and a jaw-dropping $120M will be invested over the next two years via 14 projects.  300+ market-rate apartments are in the works, too.      Downtown is entering an unprecedented phase of growth, and we couldn't be more excited.  From City Square to Union Arcade, huge projects are underway.  The best is yet to come; we love our city!

 

Let the summer fun begin tomorrow when River Music Experience's Friday Live at 5 returns. Presented by Budlight & 7G Distributing, this Friday's summer concert series features Soul Storm sponsored by The Sedona Group. Stick around for a phenominal Friends of RME Appreciation Show with Caroline Rose! On Saturday, check out Iowa's signature alt-rock-country band, The Nadas, when they perform in the Redstone Room, and get your punk/indie fix on Tuesday with The Menzingers. And remember, RME celebrates their 10 Year Anniversary next week!

 

From fireworks and interactive arts to summer treats, celebrate the diversity of the Quad Cities at this weekend's QC Pridefest. If you're looking for a source of outrageous fun, this street fair is perfect for you. Juneteenth festivities also start this weekend with Alpha Phi Alpha's VIP White Party Extravaganza at the RiverCenter Saturday, fellowship and worship on Sunday, a community forum Monday, and a handful of events throughout the week.

 

Bacon lovers, unite! If you love bacon and having fun, you won't want to miss Bacon Bonanza at the RiverCenter Saturday.  This casual indoor/outdoor fundraiser features bacon-centered food samples, informational booths all about bacon, live music, and bacon-centered merchandise! To top it all off, the proceeds go to Churches United of the QC Area.

 

The River Bandits take on the Peoria Chiefs this weekend, and each game is paired with a handful of promotions to enjoy! Saturday's game gives thanks to the fans with balloon animals, face painting, and drink specials during Fan Appreciation Saturday. On Sunday, bring the pooch along for their Bark in the Park promotion. And as always, Monday features $2 bleacher & berm seats for Markdown Monday!

 

 Spend some time down by the beautiful Mississippi River this summer with the many events downtown. On Sunday, the FREE summer concert series, Music on the Levee, returns with a performance by Josh Duffee & His Graystone Monarchs. Next weekend, help celebrate the riverfront trails on Father's Day for the 30th Anniversary of Ride the River! If you haven't registered yet, click here to do so.

 

See you downtown!

Harkin Aide to Visit Scott County as Part of ‘In the Footsteps of History’ Tour PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Sen. Tom Harkin   
Wednesday, 04 June 2014 07:54

Will discuss positive impact of HELP Legal Aid Center in Davenport

DES MOINES – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) announced today that his aide, Alison Hart, will visit Scott County on Tuesday, June 17, as part of a summer tour highlighting Harkin’s partnership with Iowa communities through the years.  The “In the Footsteps of History” tour will include all Iowa counties and feature local projects aimed at keeping Iowa communities healthy and safe, keeping communities thriving through targeted education, research, and economic development projects and promoting local agriculture and conservation, while mitigating disasters.  The media is invited to attend.

Hart will meet with administrators at the HELP Legal Aid center to discuss the impact of the center on the community. Legal Aid lawyers provide counsel for under-served and at-risk populations, including victims of crime, the elderly, veterans and low-income people in the Davenport community. Harkin was a Legal Aid attorney in Iowa early on in his career and went on to fight in Congress to ensure that low-income Americans have access to the legal services they need. As a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, Harkin has offered numerous amendments to save and increase funding for the Legal Services Corporation, which funds Legal Aid.  In addition, he has worked to secure more than $2.7 million above their base funding for Legal Aid services in Iowa since 2006. In 2009, he introduced the Civil Access to Justice Act, a bill to reauthorize the Legal Services Corporation and increase its annual authorized funding level. In 2007, he co-sponsored the Civil Legal Assistance Attorney Loan Repayment Act, a bill to forgive a portion of federal student loan debt for civil legal-aid attorneys who vow to stay in the practice for at least three years following degree completion.

“Every American deserves equal access to our justice system,” said Harkin. “Having been a Legal Aid attorney early on in my career, I know firsthand how crucial legal assistance is to protecting the safety, security, and health of struggling families who have no place else to turn. I look forward to learning about how this center in Davenport is assisting those in need.”

Details of the event are as follows:
