Rockford celebrates ‘815 Day’ and welcomes the 815 Day Baby!


Rockford celebrated ‘815 Day’ on August 15th (8/15 – get it?) and there were several events that took place downtown.

Some proud Rockford residents sat outside Rockford Art Deli, at 402 E State Street, with shirts printed with 815 logos on them.

Inside, Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara printed some customized shirts of his own.

At Swedish American Hospital, a special 815 delivery arrived: Taiwan Junior, or T.J., was born at 7:30 a.m., the first baby to be born at Swedes on 815 Day – and his parents’ first child, too!
