The annual Rockford Harvest Festival Chicken BBQ was again a great success!  People began lining up early after whiffing the delicious smell of the specially seasoned chicken as it was being prepared on the Green Egg grills outside the Rotary Pavilion.  Special THANK YOU to Herman’s Boy for donating their special seasoning for the chicken and coffee.
Proceeds from the BBQ are used for various Rotary projects in the Rockford Community. Projects include: promoting literacy with Little Free Libraries and Reading Rocks, helping students in need at Rockford High School with the STRIVE program, offering two college scholarships each year to Rockford High School Interact students, supporting the Life Leadership program each June to develop young leaders (high school juniors), contributing to the stage at Garden Club Park, contributing to the renovation of the Rotary Pavilion, supporting Shop With a Hero each fall, supporting Ukrainian Refugees with Rotary Rocks for Shelter Box and more. 
Plans are already underway for the 2023 BBQ and the Club looks forward to seeing everyone again in the fall!  Thank you to all who support our fund raisers!  We really appreciate you!
