Weekly Poop 1/24/18

Roost #44 Poop
  • From the PrezSome members may not be aware that Roost #44 is a member of the Council of Baltimore Raven Roosts. This Council was formed as the successor to the Council of Colt Corrals after the Ravens came to Baltimore in 1996. The Council holds a monthly meeting Catonsville, MD. All Roost presidents or a representative are expected to attend these meetings. Some of the major events that the Council sponsors are the Annual Council Convention and Parade in Ocean City and an annual Bull Roast in Baltimore, which is the prime fund raiser for the Council. The Council also raises significant donations to the Special Olympics of Maryland held at the Polar Bear Plunge at the Bay Bridge and another Plunge held in Western Maryland. Last year, $117,622 was raised by the Council and its members for both Plunges. Dues and funds generated by the Council are donated to various local and regional charities. Since 2007, the Council and its member Roosts have donated over $3,580,067 to charity. In addition, each Roost may apply for charity donation from the Council. Last year Roost #44 was given a $500.00 donation for Diakonia from the Council. At last week's Council meeting, Matthew Judon was present to accept the Council's Unsung Hero Award for 2017.
Currently, the Council has almost 70 members in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The Council just approved an application from a city in Germany - Roost #500. Groups from Seattle, Jacksonville and North Carolina are also currently considering applying for membership in the Council.
For more information on the Council, like them on Facebook, go their website at or feel free to ask me for further information.
Remember that we collect plastic grocery bags at every Roost meeting. These bags are used by Diakonia (Local Food Bank & Homeless Shelter) to distribute food contributions to the needy. My white Ford pickup truck is parked in front of OC 360 at every Roost meeting. Simply put your plastic bags (tied up tightly) in the bed of the truck. This is a great way to recycle plastic bags for a good cause.
Look for an announcement about Raven Roost #44 celebrating our 20th Anniversary in the OC Today paper this week on page 24.

Funny Poop
  • After dating a young lady for some time a young man decides it is time to marry her.
He proceeds with all the necessary plans and finally the day comes.
On the day of the wedding the young man has yet to pay the pastor for performing the ceremony. However, the pastor has a plan.
The service proceeds as planned the vows are exchanged etc. Now it is time for the groom to kiss his bride. The pastor sees this as the perfect opportunity to ask to be paid. He pulls the young man aside and asks him. Can you please pay me?
Not wanting to create a seen the young man asked. How much do I owe you?
The pastor thinks quickly and replies, pay me according to your wife's beauty.
The young man discretely pulled out five dollars and gave it to the pastor.
Although annoyed by this, the pastor continues the ceremony and says; you may now kiss the bride. At this point the veil is lifted from the brides face to allow the groom to kiss her. As the groom is about to kiss his new bride the pastor interrupts and promptly hands the groom four dollars and fifty cents.
