 On Thursday, October 11 beginning at 3:30 p.m., a dedication ceremony will be held for the Pat and Jack Bush Scenic Overlook, 3727 Elm Street, Bettendorf. This exciting new addition to the Bettendorf Riverfront is a great compliment to the Riverfront Recreation Trail that is also a portion of the Mississippi Riverfront Trail that runs from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico.


Pat and Jack were a team in life and life-long partners for over 57 years, and raised their family in Bettendorf for their entire married lives.  They were philanthropic supporters, personally contributing to many community projects that have strengthened the quality of live in Bettendorf. The McCarthy-Bush Corporation donated the land for the scenic overlook, making the project possible.
