Greetings Rocket Post,


     I do hope this weekly update finds you all in the best of spirits and health. I know all the news is bothersome but I am still the optimist, in that I feel we will all get through this just like we have in the past with other challenges. I cannot say enough how important all of you are to me and the rest of the members at the Rocket Post and we are all in this together so if you need something please reach out and ask for help.


     If you know of an event you were planning to attend in the next month I highly encourage you to call and verify if it is still happening. Seems most every event that included 10 or more people has been postponed or cancelled so check.


     I read this morning that Publix is having special hours for our Senior Citizens. Looks like Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM if you are 65 or over you can shop without the stress of a packed store. Here again I encourage you to double check with your local Publix and verify they are doing the same thing.


     I was told by one of our members that she found out Walmart is also offering Senior shopping starting Tuesday 24 March from 6:00 am to 7:00 am. This is wonderful news.


     Do not forget that we are still having our Friday night dinners but they are Take Out only, same great meal, same great price. Try to call in and place your order 321 636-3570 If the line is busy just try again as we only have the one line. You can pay with cash or card. As far as next Friday I am not sure what the meal will be. I do not know if Steak will happen but I am assured that our kitchen manager and volunteers will have something for everyone to enjoy so keep your eyes and ears open and as always please share this information with others.


     With some members not able to get out as easily as others I am seeking volunteers for next Friday’s meal. I would like to see how many of you would like to volunteer to deliver meals to members who live within 8 miles of the post. This is in no way a promise but if we can get enough who are willing to do this we could really help our membership and that is what we are all about. I ask that any of you that are willing to deliver Friday even meals to email at the address below. Please write a short message with name, phone number and I will put together a list. If we have enough I will advertise that we can deliver. If I do not get volunteers I cannot make this possible.


     During this temporary closing we are already working on making the post better inside and out. The goal is to make everything look nicer and work better in the kitchen, the canteen, the hall and even the parking lot. I do hope the changes will be noticeable when we do re-open.


Have a wonderful week.
