Hitting the wall
Instead of heating a microwave meal, I started my lunch hour Monday at the riverfront, where the America's River Partnership staged the dedication and ribbon-cutting for the Port of Dubuque Recognition Wall.
The wall is pretty impressive. It features a color photo of the river and bluffs, with names of the many donors overprinted in white type. The wall served as the backdrop for the program. (In the photo above, Greater Dubuque Development Corp. executive Rick Dickinson speaking). Mother Nature provided an above-average November day.
And, by the way, I didn't go hungry. After the ceremony, donors and other guests adjourned to enjoy a light lunch (courtesy of Hy-Vee) in the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium.
