Rotary chicken sale over, plenty more to eat, do at Harvest Fest

DELICIOUS—Rotarians served them up hot and steady during their three days of chicken dinner sales. They even impressed a new fan in eight-year-old Michael Foster of Grand Rapids, shown with Dave Speese, who chaired this year’s sale. Foster, who is new to Grand Rapids, was enjoying Rockford with his family. “We love Rockford, it’s so beautiful here,” said his mother, Stacey.

Don’t miss the used book (and more) sale at Krause Memorial Library on Saturday, October 3, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. During the last hour, items are a buck a bag.

Other events happen througout the day. Animals on the Go are back at Garden Club Park Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 6 p.m., and hayrides throughout the day are free and fun with really big horses.

Rockford merchants work hard to make the festival a special treat. Each year Start of Summer dazzles with bling and rides, but Harvest Fest is designed to bring back that old-fashioned hometown feel for which Rockford is so well suited.

Take the time to visit in some of our local shops, where you are likely to meet the owner, who will chat and ring up your sale. Try to find service and experience like that in a big-box store.
