Good Day Everyone,

     Who has some hidden talent? It was brought to the attention of the House Committee that we have some members that know how to play instruments and sing. We were asked to consider bringing them together on any given Saturday evening around 5:00 pm or thereabouts so they can play with each other and learn from one another. So here it is, if you have some hidden talent that could be shared with others in the post please get with Bob Wilson or Maggie and let them know. I personally would love to see some live entertainment. Maybe we can get Steve to bring his guitar in and start things off! Hint hint Steve!


     Some members have asked for specific motorcycle parking. For those that know me and the commander, we both ride and this topic was addressed a couple years ago. For the safety of all who choose to ride on 2 wheels we have communicated with Indian River Furniture and have permission to park on the concrete slap across form our screen room. Yes it adds a few feet of walking but it is safe and solid, unlike our gravel which has proven to be dangerous for some riders. Please use the concrete slab for your motorcycles.


     There were a couple suggestions in the box that were unable to be understood. Please include your name and a phone number when you make a suggestion so we can communicate with you and confirm your wishes.


     We are looking for volunteers in the kitchen so if you would like to learn the grill, the deep fryers and the ins and outs of the kitchen please see the bartender, Bill Fanning or any board member and we will ensure you are trained on anything you desire. On Friday the 25th if you want to learn the grill please let me know and I will teach you during our awesome steak night.


     Buddy Poppy drive! It is time to get signed up for the upcoming Buddy Poppy Drive. We will need volunteers for the weekend of 9, 10 and 11 November. Please come by the post and sign up.


     We are getting close to the drawing for the Auxiliary baskets and that quilt. Don’t miss out on that opportunities and get your tickets from the bartender as soon as possible


     Plan for a great Halloween night at the Rocket Post with a costume party and we will have Louie and the Entertainers through 10:30 or later if need be. Not to disappoint we will keep Aaron in the kitchen doing his culinary thing, so come hungry and stick around for some fun.


     Have a wonderful week.
