Saturday, October 16, 2010 marks the inaugural running of the Louie Bellson 5K Memorial Drum Roll in Monline, Illinois. The late Bellson was a native son of Moline and was dedicated to mentoring younger musicians, so it’s fitting that the run/walk will raise money for music education programs in the Illinois Quad City area. His widow Francine Bellson will be flying in from California to be part of this event.
