‘Where were Rockdale elected officials’ at Kay?

Dear editor,

The dedication Saturday of the state historical marker for the Kay Theater was indeed a great day for the city of Rockdale.

Judy Slusher, Leanna Applegate and Les Davenport told some very entertaining experiences they had at the Kay during their childhood.

The Communities in Concert band is to be complimented on the music they provided for this most auspicious occasion.

We were honored to have Congressman Bill Flores from Washington, D.C. and two of his staff members present.

County Judge Dave Barkemeyer and wife Margia were also in attendance along with District Attorney, Bill Torrey.

There were representatives from Rockdale Chamber of Commerce, Rockdale Municipal Development District, Milam Community Theater and several other organizations, plus many individuals.

Even though the event had to move inside momentarily due to rain, it did not dampen the spirit of the day.

Where were Rockdale’s elected officials?
