Greetings Rocket Post,


     Finally, I get to put out good news! This is awesome. As most of you know we opened the canteen last Thursday evening at 5:00 PM. I sure hope you are all spreading the word that we are getting back to some of our normal activities and in due time we will be back as we were prior to March.


     As you can see below we are back to Sunday Bingo at 2:00 PM. We are back to Pool Tourney Monday night at 7:00 PM. The Saturday Pool Tourney is still set for Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM but that could possibly change after our next meeting in a couple weeks. I spoke to some of the pool players this past Saturday and we will finalize the Saturday time in the next couple weeks.


     Our Friday night dinners have been doing pretty good these past few weeks and starting this Friday 4 September we will have actual silverware and real plates! I know, exciting right?? I will speak with the Auxiliary and see about starting the Food Shoot back up but as for now that is still not starting but hopefully soon.


     Some of you that played Bingo yesterday saw the technical difficulties with the screens and for that I do apologize. Digger and I worked on that system for over 3 hours and Comrade Lawson showed up to try and help. When I tried to fix the bad part I made it even worse so the new part is on order and hopefully we will have it this week. I am also hoping we are back up and running on all 4 screens next Sunday. No promises but I want you to know we are trying.


     I heard a rumor that next Thursday 10 September we are going to be having our Thursday night Tacos by Aaron. I will verify that rumor this week and I will let you know for sure.


     Little steps in the right direction and soon we will be back to our normal. I have said it before and I will say it again, your patience and understanding has been greatly appreciated through all this since March and for that we thank you. Our goal was and is taking care of our Military, our veterans and their families, these last few months have been a real challenge. The Rocket Post would not be what it is today without each and every one of you. Hope to see you all in the coming days.


Have a wonderful week.
