experts, what would be the formula to arrive at Oct 8 of each year?  It must be dynamic formula and not entered simply as Oct 8, 2014 and change for each year after that.  

thank you

Well, you can start with:
=DATE(2014,10,8)

if you wanted row 1 to be 2014 you could do row() + 2013 for the year . . . or some offset of that kind.

Not sure what you mean by dynamic other then the year has to change.

Kyle, thanks.  2014 is hard coded and I really need something dynamic.  Maybe Now()?

Do you want to get 8-Oct-(this year) for the whole year, or should be all dates after 8-Oct to be in next year?

The former is e.g.   = DATE(YEAR(Today()), 10, 8)

Olemo is correct . . . year(Today()) would get you the current year.
