Greetings Rocket Post,

     We had another great week at the Rocket Post and we have another great one coming up. I would like to thank all of you that helped prepare for our First Responder Day on Saturday. All of the help setting up and all the food that was prepared was much appreciated. I know we did not have very many First responders come by the post but that just means they were out doing their jobs or they were enjoying what little time they have off with their families. For those that did come by for lunch I know they really appreciated all the effort put in to Saturday. Again, thank you all very much.

     This will be the last week for the food drive for the Humane Society. On Friday the Commander and the Auxiliary President will be loading up all the donations and delivering them. If you have any cat or dog food or other necessities for the Humane Society please bring them by Thursday. For those that have already donated, another huge thanks. I know they are going to appreciate your generosity.

     If you did not sign up for the Chicken Fried Steak dinner this Wednesday I highly suggest calling the canteen and seeing if you can still get on the list. I know I signed up for two plates and that’s just for me.

     For all you golfers out there! If you have not signed up for the 495th Legends Golf Scramble which is this Saturday the 30th of October I highly suggest calling Turtle Creek Golf Course and seeing if there is still some open slots or teams in need. This is a huge event and it is a blast.

     Last week I was asked if we are having a Halloween party. I never gave it a thought as I was looking at Sunday being Halloween and taking our Granddaughter trick or treating. It totally slipped my mind. Well, Danno, the Karaoke Jocky, asked if we could have one and I said of course. So, this Saturday starting at 5:00 PM we will have a Halloween party. Dress up if you like, bring finger food to share if you like, let’s just have some fun. If you have not met Danno, he dresses up like Alice Cooper for Halloween and word is he sings it pretty good too.

     Yes we will still have the pool league! You guys and gals feel free to dress up too. This should prove to be fun.

     We still have tickets available for the Spaghetti dinner on 13 November. Remember, this dinner will start at 3:00 PM and there will be raffles and other things going on. All proceeds from the dinner will go towards the Christmas for the kids at the Orlando Children’s Hospital. See one of the canteen associates if you have any questions.


Have a wonderful week.
