Times tough, but be thankful for what we have

As we enter this Thanksgiving season, I hope you realize how blessed you are. What a perfect time to turn our thoughts towards what is right in our lives.

So take a moment and meditate on your positives. I bet you'll find that you have many.

Chili and handbells

This weekend was a busy one in Rockdale. Saturday was the chili meal for the Depot. It was a great turnout as the Depot raised money for their on going projects. That is certainly a busy group which has paid off for the Depot and for Rockdale.

And of course the chili, made by Donnie Marek, was exceptional.

Then on Sunday, the Matinee Music Club brought the East Texas Handbell Ensemble to town, under the direction of Arnold Sherman.

The performance was delightful, the refreshments were delicious and the attendance was great.

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Turkey giveaway

The Chamber's annual Turkey Giveaway will begin on Wednesday, Nov. 18. Listen for the Turkey Gobble on KRXT. We thank those businesses who give the turkeys away during this holiday season.

Pep rally

Comfort A/C will sponsor a pep rally and bonfire for the Rockdale Tigers as they begin their district playoffs. The pep rally and bonfire will be held on Thursday at the lot north of the football stadium at 6:30 pm.

Join the band, cheerleaders and Golden Girls as they cheer the football team on their way.

Until next time I leave you with this: Some folks are wise and some are otherwise.
