Three honored for life-long service

Rockford’s Recognition Plaza at Peppler Park is three names richer after a Community Endowment ceremony officially recognized three people of historic significance.

Held indoors because of weather, representatives from the families of Edna Haner, Harry Morris Jr., and Glenn Rounds were on hand Tuesday, May 11 at Rockford City Hall.

Each of the individuals chosen for this honor are recognized with a permanent plaque at Peppler Park east of the Rockford dam. The Endowment honors those who have made a contribution to the communities in the greater Rockford area. When visiting Peppler Park Recognition Plaza, you may view the plaques to see the names of those who have been recognized for their service to the area.

Also see the bricks throughout the plaza with names of individuals, families and businesses. They are available through the City of Rockford for just $125 and are a gift that gives a permanent legacy in Rockford.
