Kelly Lao, executive director, German-American Heritage Center, will tell us about "Germans in the Quad Cities” at the Nov. 2 meeting.
Kelly has been at the center for 5 years, as volunteer coordinator, assistant director and director. She earned a masters degree in museum studies from Western Illinois University.
She’ll tell us about the many German Americans who helped create this community. German immigrants influenced many aspects of life, from clubs and organizations to many historic buildings in downtown Davenport.
We’ll learn the history of the German American Heritage Center, 712 W. 2nd St., Davenport, and someone may win a free membership in it. To learn more, go to www.gahc.org
