Start of Summer – the magic continues!

The Rockford Chamber of Commerce and Start of Summer Celebration committee would like to again thank this great community, the businesses, and all the volunteers for their participation and support of the 41st Annual Start of Summer Celebration.  Even the unpredictable weather couldn’t deter our spirits!

A special thank you to City of Rockford, Rockford DPW, Rockford Police Department, Rockford Fire Department, Rockford Ambulance, Rockford Education Foundation, Scheidel Electric, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Aunt Candy’s Toy Company, ASP team from RUMC, Bob Wells, and the Kent County Sheriff Department!  Once again their contribution of time and talents was a major factor in creating a safe and very successful SOS celebration.
