At The Rocket

Greetings Rocket Post,

     Wow, last week was busy! Cinco de Mayo, Tacos on Thursday, Awesome Fish Dinner Friday. Saturday karaoke, yesterday Mother’s Day, Breakfast by Evelyn and Bingo. I don’t know about the rest of the world but we were busy at the Rocket Post. Maybe we should take a break! NEVER! Take a look at the upcoming events and follow us on Facebook as well as our web page.


     I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that volunteered for everything over the past week. Coming up the Auxiliary has their meeting Wednesday, of course the Thirsty Thursday with Tacos and more, Friday that awesome steak dinner.


     We have had a few requests to only have Fish once a month so in an attempt to make our members happy we are changing up a little bit on the third Friday. Instead of Fish we are going to have Country Fried Steak with White Pepper Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and a vegetable. This is going to be fantastic and only 10 bucks! I like me some Country Fried Steak.


     My weekly updates are intended to be positive and hopefully full of good news. Every once in a while I have to add something that I really do not like. This is one of those times. As many of you already know our Post lost a very big part of it on 22 April at 9:58 AM. Doug "Digger” Martin lost his battle with Stage 4 Lung cancer. As I type this my eyes are filling up because of how much Digger meant to so many of us. If you knew Digger you Loved Digger that’s all there is to it. For those of you that did not know him well, I can assure you that he left his mark on the Rocket Post over the years and he will be greatly missed. We are going to Celebrate his Life on 29 May at 1:00 PM and there is no ending time. I hope to see you all there.


     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.
