We have so many exciting events coming up, please read below or visit our website at: molinetownship.com, click MAC Programs to display the calendar of events and programs. As the new Moline Township Supervisor, I had a meet and greet on March 16th as well as a St. Patrick’s Day luncheon to get to know the CMA members and the community better. We had a great turnout, I’m so excited for this new journey, implementing more programs and events for our community members.
