ALL FIRED UP—

The Rockdale Volunteer Fire Department’s ‘All Fired Up’ fundraiser at The Ranch on Friday night was another huge success. RVFD members cooked, waited tables and tended bar for tips. The popular band People’s Choice provided the night’s entertainment. A little more than $5,700 was raised. Above, kitchen crew (L-R) Dwayne David and Mike Korenek serve up some laughs. At left, RVFD chief Ward Roddam thanks the crowd for their support. “What an awesome fun night it was, and many thanks to all who attended and especially Russell Fischer and Cathy Gregorcyk. I will continue to say that the main reason we have such a great fire department is due to the way the citizens of Rockdale and South Milam County support us,” Roddam said. “The money raised from this event will go towards purchasing new firefighter gear, as we have been very fortunate to have five young men, who have grown up in Rockdale, recently submit a membership application to the department.”
