Fourth of July was red, white and blue fun

CHAMBER CHAT
DENISE BROCK
Rockdale Chamber of Commerce

What a great fireworks we had on the Fourth of July. Hope everyone enjoyed it.

I would like to thank all the volunteers we had at the park and also those who helped prepare.

What a wonderful group to come out and withstand the heat and do all the hard work.

You were definitely troopers in my book.

I would also like to thank our sponsors for their contributions and to the Communities in Concert Band for their outstanding music.

Also, thanks to our businesses. If it weren’t for the businesses we wouldn’t have the children’s games. Thanks to all. It was a huge success.
