Local hero

Greg Brinkley Greg Brinkley Our Local Hero, Greg Brinkley of Rockdale Building Materials, is a business owner who recognized a need and helped with it.

This weekend was a freezing weekend and there were many broken pipes around town. Greg realized on Saturday at the lumber yard that there was going to be a lot of need for his products because of the demand he was having for pipes, etc., to fix those broken lines. So he opened all day Sunday (on a day he was usually closed) because “he didn’t want anyone to go without water through the weekend.”

He called around to spread the word that he would be open and people were so thankful to be able to purchase their supplies locally.

We appreciate Greg and Rockdale Building Materials for his caring for our community and wanting to help.

We also appreciate Loves 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
