Get a ticket, get out and enjoy the Rockdale Fair

The fair began a week early this year with the children's pageant and the Miss Rockdale Fair Queen Pageant held this weekend. The committee did a great job and the entrants were beautiful.

It is so amazing to be involved with the fair and all that goes along with it. So if you haven't gotten your ticket yet you can get it at the Chamber and other locations around town.

We are getting many phone calls already at the Chamber about all of the activities going on out there. It should be a great time so dust off your jeans and get ready to go to the fair.

Media members

Our Chamber members we are featuring this week are our media. We are so fortunate to have two forms of communication that are locally owned and both feel as though their job is to serve the community, and they both do it well.

Radio station KRXT promotes all events that we have in the Rockdale area. I know that many of our events are the success that they are because of the good coverage KRXT provides. They are always willing to have events on the radio, interview speakers, and call in for any of the residents who need to make announcements. They help get the word out and are an invaluable resource to our community. For your advertisement needs call KRXT at 446-6985.

The prize-winning Rockdale Reporter also provides wonderful coverage of all events that go on in Rockdale and surrounding communities. They are taking pictures and covering activities on a regular basis. They are such an asset to the community and their promotion of the area guarantees a success for our events. They have the pulse of the issues of the town and are not afraid to address those issues. The many awards they have won through the years only confirm that they are a quality newspaper of which we are fortunate to have to keep Rockdale going. For your advertisements or news articles call 446-5838.

Until next time I leave you with this: We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
