We are holding our annual Chicken BBQ on September 24th and 25th.  It coincides with the Rockford Harvest Fest.  Come down to the Rotary Pavilion in Rockford on Friday September 24th or Saturday September 25th to eat a delicious chicken dinner cooked from scratch on four Green Egg grills.  The meal includes green beans, mashed potatoes, a roll and a drink (coffee or punch).  We will be selling pop and water as well.  You can eat the meal at the Pavilion or take it home with you.  Curb side pickup is available.  All proceeds go to the club and will be put to good use in the Rockford community.  We have donated over $50,000 to the community in the last year.  
 
Rotarian members worked alongside Rockford community members to spread mulch around the new trees planted earlier this year at Memorial Park. The event was part of the Rockford Sustainability Committee’s “go green” efforts in our area.
 
Phase II of the Rotary Pavilion renovation is underway in downtown Rockford and the Rotary Club of Rockford was excited to be able to provide an additional $20,000 to the City of Rockford for the project. Current President Erik Luxhoj and Immediate Past President Jim Tol presented the check to City Manager Thad Beard and Mayor Ed Ross. The Pavilion, at the corner of Courtland and Squires Street, is a favorite outdoor meeting place for visitors to the downtown area. New siding, lighting, insulated interior walls and windows are underway now.
