Show your Tiger pride with a street banner

An exciting development that I am happy to tell you about is that the Athletic Booster Club, the Rockdale Downtown Association and the Chamber are working together to have spirit banners placed along Highway 79 in support of Rockdale ISD, its students and teachers.

The banners will go up sometime in August, ready for the beginning of school.

The Athletic Booster Club will also be selling spirit flags to place at your business or home and the cost is $25. You can call Susan Boyd at 760-0816 to order a flag. Something that small towns do so well is to support each other and this is just one more way to do that.

And also, the different entities working together means so much. I can't wait for them to appear on the scene.

Softball and tennis

We will have a lot of extra people in town for the next two weeks. The Girls Softball Association is sponsoring a state tournament this week and the Tennis Association is sponsoring the Rockdale Tennis Open next week.

If you see someone you don't know, take a minute to say hi and welcome them to Rockdale. We excel in hospitality so take your chance to promote our town and make them feel welcome.

Fan power

We are still collecting fans for the needy and the elderly. If you would like to donate a fan bring it by the Chamber from 8-4 Monday through Friday.

We have given away over 50 fans and still need more. Thanks for your help for this worthwhile cause.

Until next time I leave you with this: Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.
