The Quarterly Newsletter Has Been Posted
November 5 @ 8:00 am - November 17 @ 5:00 pm
The RIPS newsletter has plenty to keep you busy this season. In addition to the monthly membership meetings (including the Holiday Social meeting in December), there are education opportunities at Hauberg History Talks and a Historic Bridge presentation at Butterworth Center. Grab a friend and a camera and go on a scavenger hunt to find WWI memorial monuments and help out Landmarks Illinois. Or take a stroll down memory lane, cozied up under a blanket, and rewatch the 1990’s PBS series “About your House with Bob Yapp.”
Our advocacy for historic structures continues. Read about the First National Bank landmark application RIPS submitted to the City of Rock Island. There is an important hearing this month for the Rock Island Courthouse. And last but not lease, RIPS extends our congratulations to Friends of Hauberg Estate for their recognition by Landmarks Illinois and the awarding of the Driehaus Foundation Preservation Award.
