Hot Rockford Nights

WOW! Another successful car show for the Rockford Lyon's Club. I don't know how many cars were there today but talk about some shine and sparkle, those cars were awesome! They had great music, great cars, wonderful people and the weather could not of been any better for this event. The nice summer breeze kept everyone cool and comfortable. We had several vendors set up for the market and there were some of the nicest visitors strolling through the Rockford City Park. I had the opportunity to sit and visit with David K from Tekoa, age 71, still farming and playing with his truck. What a nice man, bet he has many stories to share.

Remember we will have the market each Saturday through 9/10/11. If you haven't had a chance to check it out or would like to set up your own table remember it's only $10.00 for the set up fee and those proceeds go to the Rockford Community Center, helping to keep it's doors open and provide a safe and fun place for all to visit and spend time. Set up time is between 8 and 9 in the park and the market hours run from 9-3.
