BGCMV - 25 Years in the Quad Cities


The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley had an Open House to celebrate 25 Years in the Quad Cities. The highlight of the event was a special announcement to dedicate the facility as the Bob & Belinda Ontiveros Teen Center. Bob & Belinda are a very special couple that have been incredible supporters of the Boys & Girls Clubs for sometime. I am honored to call them friends. Here's a photo of Bob. Chris & Pam, Greg and Maria Ontiveros at the dedication. More photos are available in the event gallery here.

IT Leadership Community Service

edgeThe John Deere Global IT Leadership Team dedicated the afternoon with a Community Service Project at Arrowhead Ranch to help celebrate John Deere’s 175th anniversary in business. The Arrowhead Ranch staff was very organized, easy to work with, and was very happy to have us there to help. We broke into 6 teams and did a wide variety of clean up activities including: weeding, tree trimming, painting, pond cleaning, brick edging removal, workshop cleaning, and a few other activities. Arrowhead ranch kept us hydrated with water, sodas, and an ice cream break. The entire team worked very hard and it was a very satisfying endeavor.

After the Community Service Project, we caravanned to the John Deere Construction Demo site to socialize, eat dinner, have a few drinks, and play a few games of corn bag toss. Here are a few photos of the days activities.
