At The Rocket

Greetings Rocket Post,


     Someone said, over the weekend, that they are looking forward to the Post opening back up! I asked them if they receive any of the emails and they said no. I asked if they check the web site or our Facebook page and they looked at me like I had two heads. Needless to say there are clearly members that do not know we are open. I need you all to help spread the word.


     I do know there are concerns with all the news about the coronavirus. I do not blame anyone for being cautious or worried. Please appreciate that we are doing everything we can at the post to ensure all of our safety. We are in Phase 2 which is 50% capacity and that is how many seats are available. You will also see less seats around the bar itself and that is because we are promoting social distancing. With this being said, I am asking each of you that come to the post to leave the seats where they are do not move them around. Also I ask that you not stand and talk to someone at the bar. If there is a seat available please sit down.


       All Auxiliary members! This Wednesday is your monthly meeting. Come socialize before the meeting in the canteen and attend the meeting at 7:00 PM. All topics of discussion could use your input.


     Thursday 10 September we are going to be having our Thursday night Tacos by Aaron. Until we get to 75% we will have open Jukebox on Thursday. After we reach 75% we will go back to Karaoke. If I get a lot of feedback about wanting Karaoke on Thursday please understand it will be in the hall not in the canteen as that takes away a lot of space. I look forward to hearing from you all on this matter.


     It has been a long time since we had steak at the Rocket. The wait is over. The grill will be on this Friday and we will have New York Strip or Pork Chop with baked potato, vegetable and a salad.


     For the Bingo players! Do you want to try and play on Thursday afternoons? I need to hear from you.


     Also, a few of you knew a couple weeks ago we had some technical difficulties with the bingo monitors. Well, we are up and running in the hall. We are waiting on one more part to get both screens working in the canteen and hopefully we can get that squared away this week.


     All General Members! Next Wednesday 16 September I highly encourage all of you to attend the monthly meeting if you want your thoughts and desires heard. We will be discussing a few things and if you do not attend you cannot be upset about the outcome.



Have a wonderful week.
