Christmas Child volunteers thanked
I’m writing to thank Rockdale residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this past Christmas.
Through their efforts, we were able to collect 560 shoeboxes—filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items—for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Full Story
Thanks to neighbors for help during fire
At 2 a.m. on Jan. 30 I ran to my neighbors Billy and Donna Marsh’s home about half a mile up the hill from where we live on CR 326 because my home had caught fire.

Community aids food pantry effort

Over 100 people came to help me celebrate my 80th birthday and brought with them 375 pounds of food for the food pantry. Who could ask for better friends. Full Story
