Greetings Rocket Post,

Service at CCNC will be at 1230 Hrs. we will line in Lane A by 12:15 PM

Rally Point will be at 2925 South Washington Ave. This is in Titusville on US-1 at the Village Inn

**NOTE- This is for Cars and Motorcycles. We will line up with Ro in the front behind two bikes and the remaining bikes will follow and then all the cars will follow. We need to line up by 11:35 AM so we can depart at 11:45

Route will be US-1 to CCNC about 25 minutes so we will roll out at 11:45 AM


     Anyone coming from the south please meet at Indian River Furniture just north of the VFW Post 4534 in Rockledge by 10:45 AM and we will roll out at 11:00 AM from the Indian River Furniture concrete pad.


     After the service we will roll south to the VFW Post 4534 for Bills Celebration of Life which will start at 3:00 PM (1500 Hrs.)


     The Post will provide the main dish for Bills Celebration of Life, if you would like to bring a side to share please contact Diana Collier (321) 749-7735 and let her know what you are bringing.

     Our Post last another member last week. John R. Saunders. His family would like to celebrate his life this Wednesday at the Rocket Post with his closest friends the card players. After cards on Wednesday the post will provide food. Please come and join John’s family celebrating his life and share some of your memories.

     Normally we have our "Show Me The Money” on the first Saturday of the month. It has been changed for July, due to many members traveling or having other plans for the Independence holiday weekend. The "Show Me The Money” will be on the 10thof July at 1:00 PM.

     Every week I try to thank all of our volunteers because without you we would not survive. This week is no different and I am asking if any of you know how to hang drywall, tape, mud and paint. Yes we are doing some more work around the post in an attempt to make it better for everyone and our next task will be in the kitchen. Please send me an email or call me if you have the skills to help us. This project will probably happen in about a month.


Have a wonderful week.
