Chamber develops Facebook page to help promote message

Social media is a new animal on the scene of technology. Though I don’t understand it all, I do understand that much business is done on line.

So the Chamber has recently added a fan page on Facebook and you can see our page, Rockdale Chamber. We will post various information about Rockdale and our businesses plus interesting tidbits about Rockdale. Visit us on the web.

Kay movie nights

The Kay Theatre is starting up their movies at the Kay for Rockdale’s summer enjoyment. The movies will be every other Thursday with movies including Where the Wild Things Are, Footloose, Planet 51, and Where the Red Fern Grows.

Projected on a giant screen on the grounds of the Kay Theater at dark come out and support the Kay.

Fan drive

The Multi-Service Center and the Chamber are again collecting fans for the needy. If you would like to donate money or fans please bring them by the Chamber at 1203 W. Cameron or the Multi-Service Center on Green St. We will collect through July for fans for the needy.

9-1-1 system

I attended the Commissioner’s Court on Monday where they talked about the 9-1-1 system and how there may be some major changes with that service. We all pay a 50 cents charge on our phone bill that is designated to go into the 9-1-1 system fund.

The problem is that the legislators only let a portion of that money be used on the system with the remaining money kept in safe keeping to accumulate.

We need to call our legislators and tell them we need some of the reserve money released to be spent on the 9- 1-1 system because with some of the proposed changes it will cut down on the effectiveness when there are emergencies.

We can make a difference if we will take a stand.

Until next time I leave you with this: Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
