Highlights from the 14th Annual Community EXPO

Three of the four Rockford Chamber of Commerce Scholarship winners.

The Rockford Annual Community EXPO was held on March 17, 2018 at the Rockford High School. It was an excellent turnout with an estimated 2,500 attendees from the Rockford and surrounding areas and over 150 exhibitor booths!

There were some great giveaways at this year’s EXPO! Three lucky attendees left with $500 cash; Gertrude Farr, Kevin Berridge, and Kelly Obenauf. Laurie Dines also won a 60” TV and Emilee Glass went home winning an all-inclusive trip to Mexico!

There were four scholarships presented to graduating seniors; James Bird, Hannah Irwin, Kendra Kalnins, and Emerson Ross (not pictured). There were some amazing performances from the Rockford elementary, middle, and high school students throughout the day as well! The celebrity emcees this year did a wonderful job! This included Andy Rent from The River 100.5 FM, Chuck LaTour from WOOD Radio, Kris DeYoung from RHS Telecommunications, and Juliet Dragos from WZZM TV-13.

Thank you to the Rockford Community for another successful year at the EXPO! The Rockford Chamber of Commerce appreciates your support!
