Local hero

Donnie Roe Donnie Roe Our Local Hero this week is Donnie Roe. You have seen Donnie’s Christmas decorating contribution around town, mainly at the Chamber and at his grandparents’ home, Ralph and Billie Roe. He loves Christmas and he loves to decorate for the season. He started helping his grandfather make the wooden cutouts when he was a little boy and, of course, I don’t think you could be a grandson of the Roes and not like Christmas. He says that he loves to decorate but he also loves to see the people’s response to the decorations. There are many people who come by to see his

handiwork.

He also helped with the Chamber float during our recent Christmas parade.

We appreciate Donnie Roe for his help to make Christmas brighter in Rockdale.

We also appreciate Love’s Flowers & Gifts and El Torito Mexican Restaurant for the gifts they provide our Local Hero each week.

If you would like to nominate a local hero, those who work selflessly for our community, call the Chamber of Commerce at 446- 2030. This honor will be given to people who work hard to make our community better.—Denice Doss, Chamber president
