How to put your Christmas greeting in Rockton-Roscoe News


This year, you can have your Christmas greeting published for free in Rockton-Roscoe News. We can also publish your picture, if you like.

Our staff will be receiving your Christmas greetings during the Rockton Christmas Walk and publishing them live, while you wait.

But you can also email your greetings in advance to [email protected] or text them to 608-728-8318.

Then you can tell all your family and friends that you'll be "in the paper" next weekend, at (Though they can also visit - that will also work.) To make sure they don't miss seeing your name (or their name), they can subscribe for free to our newsletter. Subscribers get a daily email with updates from Rockton, Roscoe, and the Rockton Christmas Walk (or whatever else is happening at the time.) Or you can subscribe yourself and forward the email to them. There will also be links on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

If we receive your greeting by Friday or Saturday (Dec. 3 or 4), the emcees for the Lighted Parade say they might even mention it during the parade, which begins at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4. The parade starts at the intersection of Main Street and Center Street (near the American Legion Hall) and continues east along Main Street, concluding at Hononegah High School.  Rockton-Roscoe News will be part of the parade.

We don't know what kind of greetings we'll be getting, but here are some guesses:

  • Christopher sends holiday greetings to Mason and Sophia and their teachers at Stone Creek Elementary School and to all his team on the road crew.
  • Ava from Rockton wishes a Merry Christmas to her mom and dad: "I made an ornament for you at Macktown while you were probably buying a present for me. And now I like John Denver."
  • David sends Christmas greetings to his mom in Owen Township and says of course he knew all along that his snowboots were behind the furnace, but thank you anyway.
  • Jacob wishes a Merry Christmas to his cousins from Chicago and says to park at the high school for the parade, then walk into the main building to see A Christmas Carol afterwards.
  • Merry Christmas to grandma and grandpa from Emma, who says, "You can open the littlest present first if you let me have some too."
