At The Rocket

VFW Post 4534



Greetings Rocket Post,

     First off I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I know we had a great turn out at the Post and I also know everyone left full. Thank you Carrie for volunteering in the canteen and thank you Digger for all your hard work prepping the meal, it was beyond my expectations. For those that brought in the sides, they were amazing. I hope to see this day become even bigger and better in the coming years. Another great example of how much our Veterans mean to us.


     Three more days and we can say goodbye to 2020. Yes we all have a lot to be grateful for but I think we all agree that 2020 has dealt us all a very challenging hand and I for one am hopeful 2021 will bring some better times for all of us.    


     For this year’s New Year’s Eve get together we are going to try something a little different. Some members have said midnight is just too late to be out and about. I have to agree. So, we are going to try to ring in the New Year the same time Brazil does. So, we will be dropping the ball in the Rocket Post at 10:00 PM and welcome 2021 a couple hours before everyone else. Hopefully more of our members can be a part of the New Year celebration with us.


     Last week a new member asked where he could find the VFW shirt that I was wearing and I told him at the VFW store on line. He did not know we had a VFW store. For those that may not know, you can click on this link then go to the bottom of the page and select VFW Store (Lower right) once in there you will see all of the VFW store items. They have flags, apparel, patriotic, military; there are specific items for General Members as well as Auxiliary. If you are having any issues navigating in the store please get a hold of me and I will help you.


     Quick reminder, this Thursday 31 December Bingo is cancelled. We will resume Bingo on Sunday January 3rd 2021 and we will start Thursday Bingo again on 7 January 2021.


     There are many college Bowl Games coming up so check the schedule and come watch your favorite team at the Rocket Post.


     Until further notice; the Rocket post will open at 3:00 PM on Saturdays. We will revisit this topic in January 2021.  


Have a wonderful week.
