Speaker stresses relationships with customers

Thanks to the Rockdale Downtown Association for the great meeting last week with Ed Peters. He gave the group information of how to promote their business.

One of his main points is that it is all about relationships and how we get along with our customers. Truer words were never spoken — it is all about taking care of each other and personal contact.

If you missed this one, you missed a gem. It was informative and fun and I learned so much.

Chamber meeting

Events coming this week include the Chamber Annual Meeting at 12-noon Thursday at the Patterson Center.

Come for lunch and get an update on the Chamber.

This Saturday is the Police Appreciation Banquet at the KC Hall. The Chamber is helping with the silent auction for the event and we have gotten some fabulous items but we need more. If you would like to donate an item for the silent auction please call the Chamber this week. We’ll come by and pick it up or you can drop it by the Chamber.

The thing that makes this town so great is the fact that everyone works together so this is our chance to support our Police Department.

The Chamber Banquet is Thursday, March 25 starting at 5:30 with the Chairman’s Reception. Awards for Citizen of the Year, Outstanding Citizen, Business of the Year, Organization of the Year and Ambassador of the Year will be given.

Until next time I leave you with this: Doesn’t “expecting the unexpected” make the unexpected expected?
