Summer Programs & Club Updates
Summer is coming to a close-look at what our Club Members were up to this last month!
On Thursday, July 28, Club teens took a trip to Six Flags Great America. Thank you to KWQC-TV6, Quad City Bank & Trust, Collision Repair, Upper Mississippi Fleeting, Sedona, Crawford Company, and Machine Shed Davenport for making this day possible. We had a blast!
While the Teen Center Members were at Six Flags, the Davenport and Moline Club Members were spending the day at Adventureland! Thank you to Group O for providing this opportunity. As you can see, everyone had a fantastic time!
August was a busy month for our Davenport Club Members! They visited the Putnam Museum, the Jamie Young Basketball camp at Augustana College, and Youthfest at Fejevary Park. They also completed the First Tee golf program, went to the John Deere Classic, went fishing at the Get Hooked Derby, and much, much more! They are excited for the school year to start!
Moline Club members were also busy this month! They participated in casting lessons at the Club, and then used what they learned to hook some catfish at the Get Hooked Fishing Derby. They went on several field trips each week, held Water Days on Fridays, and created this mural!
Teen Center (The Club)
The last month of summer was busy at the Teen Center! Members attended the Get Hooked Fishing Derby and the John Deere Classic. On the last day of summer Club, all members were treated to a day at Rivers Edge to celebrate a member's birthday. It was a special treat for all members to take part in this special day together!
