The Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau Promises Another Merry and Bright Holiday Season

The Rockford Chamber of Commerce is Working for a Better Rockford

I don't think you'll get much argument from anyone if you point out that the last few years have been very tough years, economically speaking. Rockford has been hit as hard, or harder, than any community I can think of.
