Greetings Rocket Post,


          Important message about Thanksgiving Day; we will serve from noon to 2:00 PM and then we will clean and serve again at 2:30 PM thru 4:30 PM. We will have the hall, the canteen and the screen room and all plates will be served to order. I know in the past we had it set up like a buffet but in keeping with better sanitation we will ask you to select what you would like and we will serve it to you, similar to Friday night dinners. I will put the menu below. As always our members who dine at the post eat for free, this includes one guest for free. Additional guests we ask for a $5.00 donation and for all "carry out” orders we ask for a $5.00 donation. We already have the volunteers who will do the preparation and for that I say a huge Thank you. The Rockledge High School Key Club has volunteered to handle the serving and clean up for our Thanksgiving dinner. This club promotes leadership as well as community service. We have the sign-up sheets in the canteen so please get signed up for one of the two servings and let us know how many guests you will have. If you can’t make it to the post please call the canteen associate so we can keep track of how many guests we will have. Thank you. Any additional suggestions, volunteers, and concerns about the Thanksgiving dinner please call or email our Jr. Vice Commander, Rick McFarland (321)243-3484 Thank you in advance.


     Reminder, Tuesday night at 6:00 PM we are celebrating the Marines birthday. At 6:00 PM we will have a cake cutting ceremony. Regardless what branch you served in I hope to see you there to support our Marines and their birthday.


     On Wednesday we will have our Veterans Day Ceremony kicking off at 1:00 PM. We will also provide lunch after the ceremony. Come out and show your support for our hero’s.


     Thursday Bingo! Not sure if the word is not being spread so please let the other members know that Thursdays at 1:00 PM we have Bingo. Bring your guests and enjoy the afternoon. The Sunday Bingo is getting better every week. Yesterday’s second jackpot was over $200.00. Hope to see more of you there for Thursday afternoons.


     We are slowly getting back to normal around the Post. We are bringing back Thursday night entertainment due to numerous requests. So this Thursday not only can you get some of the best Tacos around you can also enjoy karaoke with Rockin Robbin from 6:30 to 9:30 PM. looking forward to seeing you there.


     Friday night we have the awesome Steak or Pork Chop dinner with all the goodies. Come out and enjoy a great meal for a fantastic price.


     Don’t forget to sign in the daily and weekly when you visit the Post and do not miss out on the two drawings the Auxiliary is having. They have a beautiful handmade American Flag and they have a Fall Basket with all kinds of goodies in it. See the canteen associate for your tickets.


Have a wonderful week.
