These geocachers are fast and fantastic. Katie Hammond and Jim LaFleur were barely off their bicycles on Monday, June 18 before they found the geocache located at The Rockford Squire newspaper office. The cache can be found with many others from Rockford (and everywhere else) at www.geocaching.com. The Squire cache is called “Free Since 1871.”
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.
