Heat is on and fans donated for elderly, needy

In typical Rockdale style people have risen to the occasion to collect fans for the elderly and low income.

We have given out about 20 fans and we have more so if you know of anyone who needs fans please have them call or come by the Chamber.

In this 100 degree weather we want everyone to stay comfortable so call the Chamber for a fan.
