Moline Township Activity Center: The Art of Active Aging Starts Here | Special Sections

The Moline Township Activity Center three-day flea market was a great success, we felt we helped many people in the community who came to shop for themselves or others. We had a great Father’s Day luncheon for our noble male members here at the MAC. The gentleman enjoyed a meal of homemade meatloaf followed by a QC staple, a dessert from Old Town Bakery. The concerts in the park are going very well, here are some photos for your greatest pleasure.

Join us on the third Thursday of every month for a safe place to share your experiences and find comfort in sharing with others.

We never “get over” our grief, but reconcile with it, learning to move on while remembering our loved one.
