Greetings Rocket Post,

     We had another great week and weekend at the Rocket. We sold out of Baked and Fried Fish Friday evening and that’s a first in a long time. What a great job by our volunteer cook team for taking care of the rest of our guests with the Chicken breast dinner.

     Saturday we tried to have a little fun at the Post with a cookout including a DJ outside and for those of you that missed it I have to tell you that you missed out on a great time had by all in attendance. Huge thanks to the commander for getting the DJ, he did a fantastic job. For all of you that brought in the sides to share, thank you so much, I saw my favorite rice, my favorite sliders and a good friend brought in has family recipe "Damn Beans” that I heard a lot of you talking about. No he will not give away the recipe. For those that volunteered on the grill, I can’t say thank you enough, it was hot and it was a lot. For all the help preparing for the day as well as the entire cleanup afterwards, I loved seeing the team work and it was knocked out in no time at all. I was asked if this will be a quarterly event! That is up to the membership but I will tell that the next time we do this, we will have a dunking booth and I will be in that instead of on the grill!

    General Membership do not forget this Wednesday we have our House Committee Meeting at 5:30 PM and the monthly meeting starting at 7:00 PM. This is where you get heard so hope to see you there.
