Holidays Around the World


Big Brothers Big Sisters hosted its annual Holiday Party at the Bettendorf Community Center on December 9th.  This year's theme was Holiday's Around the World and included arts and craft projects to create items traditionally used to celebrate Christmas around the world.  As matches made their way around the world, they collected stamps for their Holiday Booklets and used coupons collected to bid on more than 40 gift items donated by area business.

The event was sponsored by the Davenport Noon Optimist Club.  Matches enjoyed food from Grinders and pies from The Village Inn.  Matches also enjoyed games in the gymnasium and a special visit from Santa.

The event was organized by AmeriCorps service members:  Angela Mendoza, Nikki Cruz, Simone Collins, and Amu Guerrero
