Good Day Everyone,


     And just like that, Christmas came and went. I do hope everyone had a great Christmas with family and friends. It was great seeing some of you at the Post on Christmas day. Now we have New Year’s this week. My New Year’s resolution is to drop 20 pounds just like last year; I still have 25 to go.


     How was 2019? I am sure there are some that will say thank God this year is over and hope for a better upcoming year. I am sure there are those that say it was one of the best. For me it was a great year. Some of us have had to say Good Bye to family and friends and that is always a difficult time. Some of us have welcomed new life brought into our families due to marriages or birth of a Grandchild or nephew or niece. For everyone the years end will have a different meaning. Regardless how 2019 treated you, I wish for each and every one of you a fantastic 2020.


At The Rocket Post this year:

-We started off the year bringing back Bingo on Sundays

-We started our Thursday Night karaoke/Live Entertainment with Aarons Awesome Tacos

-Jim Lawson stayed on as our Post Commander.

-Kathy Tubbs passed the gavel to Ancil "Big Jim” Thompson as the Aux President

-More members have stepped up to volunteer in and around the Post

-We raised over $4000.00 for our Christmas Fund and helped 9 families this year.

-The list is way too long to recognize each and every one of you that give so much to our Post. You know who you are and I hope you know that you are appreciated by all of us.
