Enjoy the green during early days of summer

We saw the first day of summer this week and that is easy to believe. With the hot and humid days we have had already we know we are in Texas summer.

But the little rains have been nice bonuses this year and so far we have beautiful flowers and yards. Though most afternoons are too hot for me to get out in the yard and do major projects, I am able to pull a weed here and there and the beauty I am met with encourages me to keep that up.

So drink in the green grass and crepe myrtles that are as pretty as I have seen. We know this can’t last all summer but for now it is a joy to behold.

New business

We had two ribbon cuttings last week.

The first one was for Rockdale Welding Supply located at 344 S 487. Rockdale Welding Supply is a certified Airgas dealer and will help you with all of your welding needs, helium and safety equipment. Go visit Less and the gang.

The second one was for American Academy of Crisis Counseling at Mulberry St. They will provide training for customer service and administrative support, multi media, computer support specialist, medical billing and coding and more. Call them at 446-5564 to find out more about the AAOCC.

American Legion event

This Saturday, June 26 the American Legion will hold an auction to raise money for their Building Fund. The auction will be held at the VFW Hall on West US 79, starting at 6:30 p.m. Inspection will begin at 5 pm.

Some of the items include picnic table, cord of wood, custom inlay table, bicycles, jewelry, rod and reel, plus much more.

Come out and support the American Legion.

Until next time I leave you with this: The best way out is always through.
