Greetings Rocket Post,

     Here we are in May already, this year is flying by. This past Friday we had one our best Commanders choice dinners in a great while and it was fantastic. The pulled Pork and the baked beans were still being talked about yesterday during bingo. I want to give a huge thank you to Comrades Lawson and Davis for their hard work prepping the meal and all the volunteers from the post and from Patrick Space Force Base. Team Work makes the Dream work, as they say.


     On Saturday the Auxiliary changed from the "Food Shoot” to "Show me the Money” and I gotta tell you, this was a hit and I see this growing in the next couple months. The winnings were over $50.00 per game and games 7 and 14 are double up so they were over $100.00. Hope to see more of you on 5 June and in the coming months.


    This week we celebrate Cinco de Mayo which means 5 May. For those that do not know, this is not the same as Mexican Independence Day. Cinco de Mayo marks the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, a victory over the French by Mexican forces that occurred more than a half century later, on May 5, 1862.


     This week we want to recognize Cinco de Mayo on Tuesday evening during our Paint Stick and Texas Hold’em. We ask that if you bring food to share that you think of a Mexican dish.


     Please help me get the word out that on Saturday 8 May we will have karaoke in the canteen from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. We will try this for a couple months on the second and fourth Saturday and hopefully you all like it and we will continue this in the coming months.


     Please remember if you want to volunteer in the kitchen or around the Post please let me know or reach out to the canteen associate or the Kitchen manager.


                                                            Have a wonderful week.
