CAMP POINT $2.08 PER gallon. What's wrong with Quincy? Those oil rigs from Indiana will find a quicker route down I70 and I72 to Quincy then looking for RT24. Is there price gouging and rigging going on in this friendly town? Getting gasoline from Canada? Japan?

There is a strip mall along US61 that has a County Market, a Dollar General, an Orshclen (sp?), a Subway, and a couple of others. But don't you dare burn it down as it is the only grocery store between Keokuk and Palmyra outside of Quincy!

Current Chairman of the GREDF Board, Tim Finlay, will give the 2013 Annual Meeting presentation which includes highlights from the past year and
recognizes GREDF's many partners in economic development. This year's theme is "A Salute and Thank You to Our Partners".
