Pictorial Past | Residents make a difference

Rock Island City Councilman Maurice Guerin points to his name on a list of Rock Island citizens who volunteered to help with the town’s beautification program in the summer of 1960. Aided by efforts of the Rock Island Improvement Club and a tax per front foot of property, the town undertakes a $30,000 street improvement project, along with planting of trees and new lawn.
