A dedication ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. Thursday for the Pat and Jack Bush Scenic Overlook at 3727 Elm St., Bettendorf. The addition to the Bettendorf riverfront is a compliment to the Riverfront Recreation Trail that is a portion of the Mississippi Riverfront Trail, which runs from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico.

Pat and Jack Bush, longtime Bettendorf residents, were philanthropic supporters, personally contributing to many community projects in Bettendorf. The McCarthy-Bush Corp. donated the land for the scenic overlook.
