With cold months around the corner, I would like to let people know about a great program called Moline Township, “We Care”. If you know of anyone in Moline Township who needs toiletries, socks, scarves, gloves, etc., please contact our office at 309-764-3558 for more information. We also have emergency blankets available while supplies last. Moline Township and MAC participated in a Moline Township community program for Logan School, “Trunk or Treat”. Thanks to the generosity of MAC members and staff, we had an abundance of candies to distribute at the trunk or to the caterers. Thank you to everyone who attended our craft and bake supplies sale; all proceeds went to the Senior Center for future activities and programs. We still have a few craft items left to purchase; Feel free to drop by while supplies last.

Pickle Ball Workshop at Johnston Hall Wednesdays from 11-11:45 a.m. It costs $2 to participate; after a visit, you must become a member of the MAC. You will need to sign a liability waiver.
