QUICK LOOK

Light judging set Thursday by Chamber

If you want to be judged in the Rockdale Chamber of Commerce’s annual Christmas lighting and decorations contest, be sure to “power on” between 6 and 9 p.m. Thursday.

Deedra Jacob, Chamber of Commerce president, said judges will look at lights and decorations between those hours and make decisions in seven categories.

They are lights, businesses, religious, window, door, whimsical and traditional.

Winners will be notified and a winners photo will be taken at 5:30 p.m. Monday at the Chamber.

Blood drawing ahead Tuesday

The American Red Cross will host a blood drive from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday (Dec. 20) in the Peace Lutheran Church fellowship hall, according to Jo Pruett, spokesperson.

All donors will receive a specially designed American Red Cross T-shirt, she said.
