As a reader of the Squire, do you know that the newspaper is completely advertiser supported? This means that the paper in your hands was paid for in its entirety through the dollars our businesses choose to spend in their local paper. We believe advertising in a hometown newspaper continues to be among the best ways to let residents know what our business community has to offer, so we hope we are also offering a valuable service in return.
We have decided to run mini-profiles of our advertisers at random so our readers can see a little bit of our business community “behind the scenes.” Enjoy.
Gary Fowle, OD & Associates, PLC, Family Vision Center is owned by Dr. Gary Fowle. His staff members are Cheryl Solomon, Kathy Thomas, Mary Buettner, Rochelle Heminger, Lisa Groesser, Brenda Walsh, Mimi Wyatt, Dr. Mandy Russell and Dr. Emily Coles.
The business was founded in 1983 by Dr. Fowle and his wife Peggy and it has grown to a staff of eight and two additional optometrists.

“Our mission is to provide the best possible eye care in the Rockford area,” Fowle said. “In doing so, our goal is to also create a consistently positive and memorable experience for every patient.”
