The start of 2011...as we take down the Christmas decorations and put them away for another year we can look forward to a new year. As with anything new we look with anticipation to see what is in store for Rockdale in this new year. I know good things are coming. But it will take us all to have a positive attitude about our town and its people.
Being a small town we may not have all of the amenities we would like to have, nor all of the shopping opportunities we might desire like bigger cities, but we do have a feeling of camaraderie and support for each other that no big city can give. So I like living in this little town. There is no better place around to live.
Our Chamber dance at the KC Hall was a great way to bring in the new year. Josh Peek and his band were great and the attendance was good. The spirits were high and everyone had a great time.
I would like to again thank our sponsors for a great night: Terri’s Touch of Elegance Cakes and Catering, Busy Bea Restaurant, Mr. Liquor 2, Miller Starnes Chevrolet/Buick, Rockdale Signs and Photography, Bland Construction, Comfort AC, Antique Queens, Noack Sand and Gravel, Rainbow Courts, Caldwell Country Chevrolet and Ford, Rockdale Federal Credit Union, Love’s Flowers and Gifts, Michelle Morgan- Texas Farm Bureau, Little Tikes Learning Center, Lee’s Landing and The Piano Bar.
Thanks to all for a great night and a great beginning to 2011.
We would like to welcome our new board members to the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. Jenny Lehmkuhl of Texas Country Title, Rob Schackart of PTS, Deedra Jacob of Little Tikes Learning Center and Debra Jackson, individual member. I look forward to these new additions to our board and to a great new year.
Until next time I leave you with this.....What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.
