Thanks for 100 years of supporting Rockdale

Dear editor,

Congratulations to The Cooke family on reaching 100 years of owning and operating The Rockdale Reporter.” What a milestone!

It is tribute to several generations of your family’s dedication and business savvy to maintain a business that long.

The Reporter has become an institution in Milam County and surrounding areas.

Your dedicated employees are an integral part of your operation and continued success.

Thank you for your support of our community through thick and thin.

Thank you for your support of our schools and students. I have shown articles and pictures about my students to them in class. Their eyes always light up when they realize they are “in the paper.”

Thank you for the support you give to our veterans. The coverage of Veterans’ Day and Memorial Day is always appreciated by those who served.

I especially want to thank you for giving me a voice during my deployment to Iraq. It was meaningful for me to express what I was experiencing and feeling during that time.

Many people have told me they appreciated your allowing my point of view to be heard.

Thank you for the support and coverage you have given our family over the years.

From Little League and livestock show coverage, to world travel by our children, to covering Patti’s participation in the Miss Rockdale Fair and Miss Texas USA pageants.

Again, congratulations on your achievement. We are looking forward to another 100 years of reading The Reporter.

Sincerely,

Art and Susan Free sfree@rockdalefcu.org
