Greetings Rocket Post,

     Hope everyone has been enjoying their 4th of July weekend. I know I have and it is nice to have an extra day off. This past weekend has been outstanding and that’s all thanks to each and every one of you. Friday night Fish dinner was a great start to this long weekend, thank you all for coming out for dinner and thank you to the kitchen volunteers who stayed busy for well over two hours.

     The 4thof July was far beyond what I expected; I figured I would cook 40 maybe 50 burgers and maybe 20 hot dogs. You all proved me to be very wrong. Over 100 burgers and over 40 hot dogs plus all the dishes you all brought in to share. What a great day at the Rocket. I did not get to try everything that was brought but the two dishes I did try made me want to learn a few new recipes. The dirty rice with sausage and the spices! That was awesome. The chili dog casserole! That was another winner in my opinion and now I want to know how to make them both. It was a great day and that is an understatement.

     We have a lot coming up this month so mark your calendar and do not miss out on some fun coming up. Beyond our normal fun events throughout the week we are adding a couple things to July that will hopefully interest all of you. This Saturday the 10th we have our Show Me the Money kicking off at 1:00 PM. Sunday morning the 11th starting at 8:00 AM we have Evelyn making your breakfast to order. 17 July we are having a post cookout with a DJ outside from 1-6. The grill will be on from 1 to 4 PM and both bars will be open. Just like the 4th I am asking you to bring a side to share. The 30thof July we have a real treat with an Italian Chef coming into our kitchen and preparing our Commanders Choice Dinner, this is going to be something special for sure.


Have a wonderful week.
