At The Rocket

VFW Post 4534



Good Day Everyone,

     Hope everyone had a great week, I know I did. As you all know we are in the holiday season and hopefully in the holiday spirit as well. Please be flexible in the coming weeks as some events will be cancelled due to Christmas Parties and other gatherings. We also have a couple days coming up that the post will have altered hours so keep an eye on the calendar.


     For all you sports fans and of course those awesome Burgers and ¼ pound hot dogs, we have Dave Skinner on the grill this Sunday so come and watch your favorite sport, play some pool, play some Bingo or just socialize with your fellow veterans and enjoy the day at the Rocket Post. Soon, very soon, we will have darts again. I will try to have this done within the next 2 weeks. The dart board will be in the far end of the hall in the last closet. If darts becomes popular we will be relocating the board to a different location.


     This Thursday we have Thanksgiving Dinner at the Post. Please bring a side dish to share. All of our members will eat free and for all of your guests it is only $5.00 each. Hope to see you there, this is always a great meal and I can assure you Bill is already working on making it perfect with his select volunteers.


     We had a suggestion in the box this past week about handicap parking. We were asked to make the handicap parking spots for those who have difficulty walking and those who cannot walk. This is not something anyone can do. Those with the handicap plate or permit are allowed, by law, to use those spaces. For those with limitations I can only say I wish we had more spaces for you but as of now we only have the 5.


     Remember! If you bring guests to the Post which we highly encourage, please be mindful that you as the member must purchase their drinks at the bar. The bartenders have every right to ask for your membership card if they do not know you. Please do not get offended because if we serve someone who is not a VFW member we could find ourselves in trouble so please keep that in mind.


 Have a wonderful week.
