At The Rocket

Greetings Rocket Post,

     Ah yes another wonderful sunny Monday after a totally awesome week at the Rocket Post. Thursday night was fantastic; Fridays Chicken Fried Steak Dinner was beyond excellent. And Saturday night karaoke was better than ever. Things are looking up at the Post and it is all because of each and every one of you.


     For those of you that missed it, we had our installation of Officers Saturday. I will put out a complete list of the Officers for the General Membership and the Auxiliary in the next few days. As the outgoing commander said, please give the support to the new officers as you have for all of our past officers.


     I will say this often, Thank You! to all our volunteers who make things happen around the post and ensure things are done. The cook teams and volunteers on Thursday and Friday nights are the best, without their "can do” attitude we would not be able to have our dinners. Other volunteers that you may never see should also know how much they are appreciated; from plumbing issues, electrical issues, shelves, sound systems, you name it, we have most of these things covered by our own membership and again, most of these things are done when the post is closed. Thank you to all of you that step up and ensure our post is running smooth.


     Coming up this week we will have our Tacos and more Thursday with the Chicken Quesadillas as the special again because they sold out last week. Friday we will have our Steak or Pork Chop dinner.


     On Saturday we will be celebrating Diggers (Doug Martin) Life. I know the Auxiliary is providing the main dish so if you would like to bring something to share please contact Diana Collier at 321-749-7735. I hope to see all of you there that knew Digger and I hope you come with some of your memories. I do expect a packed house so please be mindful when parking and ensure you leave room for other vehicles. I hope to hear back from Indian River furniture so we can park in their parking lot. For the volunteers on Saturday please park at  Ellington Air Conditioning so we can leave room for others to park at the post.


     Keep your eyes open, I will be putting out another update in a few days


                                                            Have a wonderful week.
