Get your discounted flu shot!

Once again this year we're offering discounted flu shots for SCFB members, but rather than coming on a specific day you can go to the Stephenson County Health Department at 10 W.

Check out new BBQ sauce at SCFB store!

We’re pleased to offer another great food item at our FB store as we now have Henn House BBQ sauce on the shelves. Henn House BBQ is run by Philip and Johanna Hennenfent from Oneida in Knox County, and they’ve expanded their successful award-winning catering business to now include packaged sauces. They've rapidly grown their market presence through Hy-Vee and other stores, and we’re pleased to introduce them to northern Illinois. There are two flavors, Sweet BBQ and Sweet Heat BBQ, and the 12 oz. bottles sell for $5 each.
