The Greater Freeport Partnership is excited to produce the 2020 Stephenson County Community Guide with your help and participation!

The Community Guide is intended to serve as a resource to learn more about businesses and attractions in Stephenson County. It is designed to be used by visitors, new or prospective residents as well as established residents. This Guide is also a directory of members of the Greater Freeport Partnership.

The Partnership is working with the Journal Standard to produce 30,000 copies of the Community Guide. Guides will be printed in February 2020 and distributed locally throughout the county (including the Visitor Center), the region, the state and the Midwest. In addition, the guide will be sent to anyone requesting information on our area and used as a relocation guide for those looking to move to the county. We also know that this is a publication people tend to hang on to and use over and over for information on organizations and events.

In addition to the print version, the 2020 Guide will be available in an easy-to-use digital format on the Greater Freeport Partnership web site, which receives thousands of unique visitors every month. Through this tool, readers can click on your ad to be taken to your web site or other information about your business. The linked ad is included in the price of your print ad and will draw more online users to your business!

To help us prepare for this year’s publication, Colleen Groves will be selling ads on behalf of the Journal Standard and the Partnership. As a thank you to our Partnership members, we are offering discounts on advertising prices for 2020. If you are interested in learning more about how to get your message in front of all the people who will repeatedly use the 2020 Community Guide, please send an email to to contact Colleen Groves.
