VFW Post 4534



Greetings Rocket Post,

     Brrrr. Not sure about the rest of you but I do not like sleeves and I certainly do not like wearing a jacket. Hope this cold front moves on quickly. As some of you may have seen Friday we were getting a lot of rain and it looked like our tailgate party for the Rockledge High school was going to be a washout. Well it turned out pretty good if you ask me. Lot of the Rockledge Raider fans still showed up even though the game was postponed to Saturday evening. One thing I noticed Friday was there were some Cocoa fans in attendance as well, some of them were even volunteering in the kitchen! Well the Raiders lost to Cocoa 20 to 14 but it was a great game. Congrats to Cocoa for a well-played game. Raiders, hold your heads high, that was a well fought game.

    Coming up this week at the Rocket; Wednesday 10 November we will celebrate the Marine Corps birthday at 6:00 PM with a cake cutting and one of our very own Marines will speak. Come and celebrate our Marines and let them know how much they are appreciated.

     On Thursday we say "Thank You”, to all who served this great country of ours. The Ceremony will begin at 11:00 AM on the 11th day of the 11th Month 2021. Commander Thompson asks that everyone arrive by 10:45 AM and be seated by 11:00 AM so the ceremony can begin at 11:00 AM. After the ceremony there will be lunch provided by the Post.

     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.

      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.
