Greetings Rocket Post,

     It’s always nice to start off the weekly ATR with a positive comment. I saw something over the weekend that made me feel very good about our membership. Taking care of veterans and taking care of each other is really what it’s all about. We have a lot of members that otherwise would not be able to come to the post even though they want to. We have members that make this happen and they never mention it. I see you and so do a lot of the others that come to the post. I for one would like to say Thank You. You know who you are.

     Some of you may have noticed the last couple steak dinners we have a new cut of meat and these New York Strips are awesome. I have heard nothing but positive feedback on the steaks and this is great news. It looks like news is spreading because Friday night’s dinner was fantastic. Thank you to our volunteer cook team and the grill master. You all did a great job.

     This Wednesday our Auxiliary will have their social hour at 6:00 PM followed by their monthly meeting at 7:00 PM. If you have any thoughts or desires this is where you get to speak about them.

     This Saturday, 17 July we are having a post cookout with a DJ outside from 1-6. The grill will be on from 1 to 5 PM and both bars will be open. Just like the 4thof July, I am asking you to bring a side to share. We will set up the food inside in the hall. We will block off the 4 parking spots in front of the screen room but we will have overflow parking at Ellington Air as well as motorcycle parking at Indian River Furniture. During the cookout there will be a lottery hat and we will also be having a 50/50 drawing. Hoping for good weather and hope for a great day of camaraderie.

     The 30th of 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.
