It’s no secret that the Rockford-area has many homeless individuals out there on the streets. Anywhere you choose to travel downtown Rockford, you are guaranteed to see at least one, but more than likely multiple, people in a small radius.

MFG Day was an event where high school students from all over - including Auburn, East, Byron, and Belvidere - were able to go to different trades businesses to see how they operate. Some of the businesses involved in this were Bergstrom, ANPEC Industries, Fastenal, and Woodward.
Admit it – you don’t know what a CNC machinist does, but the title alone sounds impressive and makes you want to be one! CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control and has been around since the 1970’s. Though most people have never heard this term, most people have dealt with CNC on almost a daily basis.
