At The Rocket

Good Day Everyone,

      I know I know, you’re saying, why is this guy late? I have numerous excuses but honestly I have been going nonstop since before the Dorian Storm. Thankfully we were all blessed with minimal damage, if any, from the high winds.


     Big shout out to a couple of our life members that helped square away 9 or 11 homes prior to the storm. Next time we need a bigger truck.


     Some of you may already know that our Seafood boil has been rescheduled for 28 September at Seasons in the Sun RV Resort. Hope you can make it for that; should be a lot of food.


     What have we missed at the Rocket? Well let’s see, the two Aux baskets were won and then over this past weekend the Ace of Diamonds was won by one of our members.


     Football season started College and Pro. Remember the televisions are first come first serve so if you want to have a get together inside please be early enough to get the screen you want. I mentioned a couple weeks ago that if there is a game on and they want the volume up they will get their wish and the bingo players will have to rely on the screen in the canteen or relocate to the hall where they can hear the caller.


     Speaking of Football! I have only heard from 2 people wanting to help out on Sundays in the kitchen and on the grill. Diana and I will take care of two of the Sundays but we need your help on the other weekends. Actually 3 people on Sundays is even better.


     So, this Sunday from 12:30 to 5:00 PM we will have the kitchen open and the grill will be fired up. Please feel free to come by the post and even if you are not a football fan I guarantee you will have the best burger ever.


     Have a wonderful week and a great upcoming weekend.
