Who Are We?

The purpose of the RIAWC is to develop and foster a spirit of Quad Cities Area (QCA) community responsibility at Rock Island Arsenal, to provide opportunities for social, cultural and creative pursuits and to support worthwhile service and community projects.

A fundamental purpose of the Rock Island Arsenal Welcome Club (RIAWC) is to generate funds to support Service Members and their Families, Government employees, and other charitable endeavors on Rock Island Arsenal and within the Quad-Cities metropolitan areas.

RIAWC is built on the six core values of Friendship, Service, Integrity, Generosity, Accountability, and Courtesy.  These values serve as the organization’s foundation and establish the character and identity of RIAWC and its members.
