Many thanks to all the children who took the time to write letters to Santa this year. Elizabeth Lane, 6, was one of the writers who received a gift package of movie passes to NorthStar Cinemas for her letter in the December 23 Squire. Lane, a Lakes Elementary School student, reports that she had a great Christmas.
The Squire has been Rockford’s free weekly newspaper since 1871. Our loyal readership includes over fifteen thousand homes in the Rockford area, including the affluent Lakes area of Lake Bella Vista, Bostwick Lake and Silver Lake; Belmont, Blythefield, as well as Algoma, Courtland, Cannon and Plainfield Townships. The Squire is distributed through the U.S. Post Office every Thursday. We also deliver to in-town businesses and homes with paper carriers and news stands in our grocery stores and over thirty local shops.
