Trunk or Treat Trunk or Treat Trunk or Treat Trunk or Treat

The Second Annual Joint Trunk or Treat was held on Saturday, October 19, 2019. This collaboration was sponsored by the Stephens Parkview and Floreciente Neighborhood Groups and held at the Esperanza Center in Floreciente. Trunk or Treat is a family-friendly event, especially well-liked by those with the littlest of kiddos. And weather for this particular one was a lot nicer than the subsequent snowy Halloween night!

On August 31, 2019, a group of a dozen SPNG volunteers gathered together to refresh and renew the Stephens Park perennial garden, located at the corner of 4th St and 15th Ave. Project Leaders were Barb & Rob Butterworth. With the City of Moline providing tools and mulch to aid the volunteers, over 3 dozen new plants were added to the garden, with a smaller number being removed or relocated due to deterioration.

Check out our latest neighborhood beautification project, “Spring Fling Flowers” on Saturday, May 18. Under the direction of Moline CDC Director Jayne O’Brien a large number of enthusiastic neighbors assembled 99 flower pots (there was 1 casualty) for delivery to SPNG neighbors, free of charge. This project was funded through grant awards from Global Communities and Moline Foundation. Many neighbors were thrilled by the simple gesture of receiving a gift of flowers, courtesy of the Moline CDC and the SPNG. The event was a great team-building activity for our group as well as a wonderful neighborhood beautification project!
