Ribbon cutting, Chamber mixer and elections

Last week was such a busy one for Rockdale. We had a ribbon cutting for Edward Jones, with financial adviser Paul Dixon.

We welcome Paul to the Chamber.

Then on Tuesday we had a mixer at Cellular One and it was a great time.

It is so good to have the mixers and give the Chamber members time to visit without interruption.

We have some other ones coming up for future months so get ready for some socializing.

Then on Wednesday we had the 100th Birthday celebration of George Sessions Perry. That was a great celebration and the committee did a great job of planning.

The Folklorico Dancers were fabulous, the elementary students essays were delightful, Becky Booker Marek gave a great rendition of Granny Vann, and of course the Community Band, as always, gave a wonderful performance.

It was a good time and those of you who missed it, missed a remembrance of Rockdale’s history.

Good election news

We have just come out of our elections for Rockdale and I am looking forward to our future. The Municipal Development District passed and that is great news for Rockdale.

We have a good committee at the helm and I know good things will come out of that.

Our newly elected officials are new to Rockdale politics but they have the best interests of Rockdale at heart.

All in all we are moving forward in a mighty way. I hope you too, want to get involved with Rockdale.

This is your town, take part in it. And to all the candidates who ran—thank you for caring for our town, for wanting to be involved.

You are special.

Senior time again

Just a thought to those parents who are getting ready to graduate those seniors—I remember so well as this time grew closer how excited we were about our own graduates.

But with the excitement was the apprehension of sending our babies out into the world, to face who knows what.

Keep on praying for them no matter what and love them in their successes and their failures, because those failures make us the adults that we need to become.

You have done a good job and now it is their turn to set out with the good principles you have instilled.

The best to the class of 2010.

Until next time I leave you with this.....Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.”
