Tejas: Tales, tailpipes, tomahawks
Houston play wright Fernando Dovalina, and actress Dolly Fischer, awed a Kay Theatre crowd with an emotional performance of a scene from Dovalina’s play “The Ophthalmologist’s Wife.”
Ventriloquist Dena Bratton, and a variety of her “friends” charmed children of all ages in performances Friday and Saturday.
It was pretty memorable for volunteers trying to stage the Rockdale Downtown Association’s Car and Motorcycle Show, too.
“I was sitting in my pickup abut 7:30 Saturday morning trying to check vehicles in and it started hailing,” volunteer Bernie Finley said.
Most of the vehicles anticipated to be in the show didn’t make it in the cold blustery rain. “We stopped and started the show twice,” Finley said. “We ended up not even having results available because of the weather.”
About four hours later the sun came out and temperatures warmed 20 degrees.
There were presentations by authors at the depot museum and library and artists gathered at Wolf Park.
Finley expressed appreciation to the following for assisting in the car show effort:
Integrity Real Estate, Dyess Insurance, Rockdale Building Supply, NAPA Auto Parts, Rockauto.com, Rockdale Historical Society, The Rockdale Reporter, Miller-Starnes Chevrolet-Buick, Stanley-Lynd Autoplex, Citizens National Bank, volunteer helpers.
