At The Rocket

Greetings Rocket Post,

     WOW! Last week was super busy around the post and what an awesome week it was. From Paint Stick Bingo to Chicken Fried Steak dinner, Taco night, then that awesome Cornish Hen Dinner Friday night with a Karaoke contest and then Saturday we top it off with the 495th Legends Golf Scramble and the Halloween Party Saturday night! This has been an excellent week at the Rocket.

     We might slow it down a little this week but not that much. This week we will have the Pool tourney Monday night, Paint Stick and Texas hold’em on Tuesday night, Those awesome Tacos on Thursday and Friday we are having a tailgate party for the Rockledge Raiders football team from 4 pm to 7 pm and then if you would like, some of our members are heading over to watch the Raiders take on the Tigers from Cocoa High. We will finish out the week Saturday with Show me the Money at 1PM on Saturday.

     Big shout out to Carl Davis for all his hard work last week with the Chicken Fried Steak Dinner and then the Cornish hen dinner Friday, which sold out. All of the volunteers that helped Carl out you should give yourself a pat on the back. Great job everyone.

     For the Tailgate Party for the Rockledge Raiders we will offer Burgers, Dogs, Pulled Pork, Chips and Coleslaw for $5.00 for members, for high school students it is donation only.    

     I mentioned last week that the Commander and the Aux President would be delivering the items to the humane society that so many of you donated over the past three weeks. After loading both their vehicles Friday morning, they delivered and the humane society was overjoyed with the generosity shown from the Rocket Post. You all have huge hearts and it show.

     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.

     If you have not heard, we have a 55 inch color television to raffle off for the Christmas fund for Roses Christmas. See the canteen associate and get your ticket or tickets. The television is in the canteen on the right side, you really can’t miss it.

     Hope everyone had a great Halloween last night. I know for us it was great seeing so many families out with their children and having our youngest granddaughter greeting everyone.

      The holiday season is upon us and now we are going to focus on Thanksgiving and Christmas. For Thanksgiving please see the flyer for our annual dinner which will be on the 25th starting at noon. Get with Carl Davis if you would like to volunteer for set up, serving, and clean up. This is always a great event for our post, our membership and their families and friends.

Have a wonderful week.
