It’s reunion, homecoming time in townReady or not, summer is here. There is so much going on around Rockdale.
This is reunion season and we had our Doss Reunion this last weekend. Seeing all the people that are part of the family that I have been a part of for 37 years is quite a joy. Having that common bond of being connected because of ancestry is an honor.
There are other reunions too, including the Aycock Reunion June 18-20 at the New Salem Clubhouse and Rockdale Homecoming on Sunday, June 13 at the Patterson Center. This is always a great way to renew old friendships and make new friends.
This week we had a ribbon cutting for ATS on Monday at their 192 N. FM 487 location. We are excited about this new heavy equipment operators’ school and what it will bring to the Rockdale community. This has training not only for our locals who are looking for a job but for people who live all over the state to be able to take advantage of this facility to train for a heavy equipment job.
Rockdale Welding Supply will have a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 17 at their location at 344 S. 487. This is a part of Perry & Perry and we are glad to welcome this part of the company to Rockdale. They will provide supplies for your welding needs, helium and much more.
We have another ribbon cutting on Friday, June 18 at 1 p.m. for the American Academy of Crisis Counseling with Executive Director Shawn Lemieux. They are located in the Institute for Teaching God’s Word on Mulberry Street.
The Academy will provide training also for customer service and administrative support, multi media, computer support specialists, and other training. For more details on the American Academy of Crisis Counseling, call 446-5564.
Until next time I leave you with this: Praise loudly and blame softly.
