Week 12 after the Corner Bar burns from a neighbor’s perspective

The view from my window… PROGRESS

As of Tuesday, November 21, workers are still removing debris from the remains of the Corner Bar.

The Corner Bar looks dark, cold and frail. Yet it has the Christmas spirit with wreaths hanging on the fencing.

Looking down into the exposed basement area seems so hallow. Soon the snow will be filling that emptiness.

The downtown Christmas lights will light up the sidewalks and store fronts. Sooner than we know our beautiful Rockford will look like a Christmas card again!
