Football Discount Cards on Sale through July 24.

Today through July 24, Aquin High School football players will be selling discount cards that will give you savings at local merchants. The cards offer 1-time and year-round savings at restaurants, grocery stores and retail stores in Freeport.


The money raised from this program will complete our helmet upgrade which was started last year. Additional funds will be used for protective pad upgrades to keep our Bulldog football players safe on the field.


If you are interested in purchasing a card, please contact an Aquin High School Football player.


Thank you for your support!

Greendawg Market News

  • On Friday, July 18, Sister Terri will be at 'Music on Chicago' with produce and all new Greendawg Market reusable shopping bags for sale from 4-7 p.m. Look for us at Booth 15!
  • Greendawg Market will not be at the Saturday market on July 19th.
  • Sister Terri will be leaving on vacation on Wednesday, July 23rd and will be returning on Monday, August 4th. Instead of scheduling distribution days on Wednesday, July 23rd and July 30th, share holders will be able to come and pick their own. (Interns will not be needed. Sister will contact the interns.) There will be signs in the garden to indicate areas that will need to be picked. Green beans, cucumbers, and zucchini will be the plentiful areas. Shareholders will also be able to clip herbs: basil, parsley, dill and rosemary.
  • August should be abundant in tomatoes, and peppers. Sweet corn will be distributed in mid-August from the Blair Farms in Winslow, IL. We are also planting additional vegetables in the garden that will take us into September and October. The pumpkins are looking good as well as Yukon Gold/Red Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes which will be harvested in September/October.
