School supply, fan drives now under way

It is time again for school supply collection. School starts this year on Aug. 23 and the VFW Post 6525 and VFW Ladies’ Auxiliary will again sponsor the collection.

You can bring your school supplies to the Chamber or take them by the VFW. The giveaway will be held Friday, Aug. 13. We also need volunteers to help with the giveaway.

Please call Joyce Hurt at 512- 966-7761 or Richard Henderson at 512-269-9151.

We are also collecting fans for the needy during this hot summer.

You can bring your fans by the Multi-Service Center on Green Street or to the Chamber, 1203 W. Cameron.

Sumuel park work day

Plans are underway to develop a park in Rockdale, called Sumuel Park. The land was donated by the Sumuel Family.

There will be a work day on Friday, July 23 from 8 a.m. to 12-noon at the park located on MLK Boulevard.

If you would like to volunteer come to the workday on Friday.

Mixer set Tuesday

Garlett Chiropractic will host a Chamber Mixer next Tuesday evening from 6-7:30 p.m. Come in and celebrate with Greg on his 1,000th patient and his three-year anniversary.

All Chamber members and prospective members are invited for good food and drink, fun and fellowship.

New business

Last week we had a ribbon cutting for L&S Legal Nursing with owners Stephanie Booker and Lindsay Cleveland. We wish them the best as they begin their business to review, organize and analyze medical records, help assess medically related damages in personal injury cases, and other issues providing professional medical expertise tailored to attorney’s needs.

Their phone number is 446- 5130.

Until next time I leave you with this: Never avoid what you must face. Challenge your circumstances and steadily persevere. The path toward victory opens from where you stand.
