Get involved in making Rockdale ‘our town’
Denice Doss
Rockdale is a great place to live. I am reminded of that over and over again as good people step forward to get involved. And then I hear those who moan about the town and I would like to encourage those people to join in.

You can choose to just live here or you can put “your oar in the water.” Let’s get busy making this the kind of town you would like for it to be. This last weekend we had our first meeting of the new Leadership Milam class. All of the participants were enthusiastic about where Milam County is going and how we work together to get it there. The class members come from all walks of life and their common cause is Milam County. Great things coming.

Can you believe that Autumn begins this Thursday? With the coolness in the air it is a gentle reminder that cool weather is not far behind. Oh what a great time of the year.

Are you a small business owner, office manager or secretary who struggles with extra work as the human resource representative? The Rockdale Chamber of Commerce and the Workforce Solutions of Central Texas Rockdale office is sponsoring a workshop to help you with information to assist you with staffing.

We will be discussing the three R’s–Recruitment, Retention, Recordkeeping. The workshop is scheduled for 9-11 a.m., Friday, Oct. at the Rockdale Workforce Center. RSVP by Sept. 28 to Cindy Jerman, 512- 446-6440 ext 6012 or press 0 for operator assistance. Space is limited.

This Saturday, Sept. 25 is the Kay Fun Run. Come to downtown Rockdale for the Kay Fun Run as they work to raise money for the renovation of the Kay Theatre. And if you don’t want to run or walk then you can be one of the ‘un-runners.’ Come out for the fun as we support the Kay.

Until next time I leave you with this...The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.
