At The Rocket

VFW Post 4534



Good Day Everyone,

     Great job by all of the volunteers that set up the Post for Halloween; turned out to be a pretty good night.  I know some folks stayed home to pass out candy to the kids and next year we will plan better and have our Halloween night prior to the actual day.


     Notice the calendar! 10 November is the Marines Birthday so we are celebrating at the Rocket. Bills making Sheppard’s Pie and we will have birthday cake. The plan is to cut the cake at 1300 Hrs. (1:00 PM). We plan to have the youngest Marine cut and serve the oldest Marine in attendance. Hope to see you there.


     On the 11th day of the 11thmonth at 11:00 AM we will say Thank you to all Veterans, past and present. Please join us at the Rocket, the ceremony will start at 11:00 am and afterwards we will have dogs and burgers. Please bring a side to share.


     We still have two open slots for the Buddy Poppy Drive. If you can spare the time it would be greatly appreciated. Please come by the post and sign up to support that great cause.


     Football fans and Bingo fans, please take notice to the calendar, 17 November from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM we will not have football or Bingo.


     I have read a few suggestions in the comment box and I will be reaching out to those of you that took the time to express your concerns. I hope you know that it is the goal of the board to ensure everyone enjoys the post and that goes for members and their guests. For those that wrote, if I do not see you at the Post in the next couple days I will be calling you. As far as members being signed in for the daily and weekly drawing, please be aware that when one of our members is away on VFW business or away on official military orders, they are authorized to be signed in. I went through the sign in sheets and everyone on them for the past 2 weeks was either at the post or authorized to be signed in. Feel free to get with me one on one if you would like to discuss this further.


     Have a wonderful week.
