Band fans are again preparing to raffle a free car for a great cause. They are cruisin’ with the Chevy Cruze again! The car that will be raffled off in the fall will be parked in the Pegasus Sports parking lot at the corner of Squires and Bridge streets every Tuesday during the Tuesday Blues Series in Garden Park, downtown Rockford. Stop by and check it out. Tickets will be available for purchase at $20 each or six for $100.
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.
