Weekly Poop 1/8/2020

Roost #44 Poop
·         From the Prez
Happy New Year to all Roost #44 members.  Hope your holidays were happy, healthy and safe!  Now on to Festivus!
Congratulations to Gary Miller and the Penguin Swim team on kicking off the year with another outstanding fund raising effort.
Congratulations and a big thank you to Michele Sardelis for stepping up to administer our first Football Sweepstakes that raised over $1,000.  A great success for a first time effort.
Our next meeting will be held January 9th at Mio Fratellos upstairs where the Christmas Dinner was held.  The formal election of officers and board members will be held at the meeting.  The nominations are closed per our By Laws, and since there is no opposition for any of the positions, I want to congratulate Bob Munroe and Don McMullen who will be elected as President and Vice President.  All officers and new Board members will be sworn in at the February 13th Roost meeting.

Local Poop
·         Friday Mayor's Prayer Breakfast, Clarion Hotel.  This event has been such an inspiring & uplifting morning, where the entire community would come together- including our local citizens, community leaders, elected officials, church congregations, local police and fire departments, the business community, the Board of education, educators and school representatives and nonprofit organizers.  It truly is the only event that spans the entire breadth of our community.
We are thrilled to announce this year's Key Note Speaker!!  Darryl Strawberry is described as a legend by many who have been dazzled by the dynamics of his game, the power he possessed at the plate, and the story of redemption that continues to bring hope to so many lives.  He has earned the legendary nicknames and phrases of one of the most feared home-run hitters in the game of baseball, Straw's Sweet Swing, Strawberry's Field Forever and The Legendary Straw Man!  Today, Darryl's purpose and passion is serving the Lord Jesus Christ by speaking a message of hope and helping others transform their lives through the power of the gospel.
The 2020 Mayor's Prayer Breakfast is presented by the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce and participating sponsors: Bayshore Development / Jolly Rogers Amusements and Bank of Ocean City.

Funny Poop
·         A woman goes to the Doctor, worried about her husband's temper.
The doctor asks, "So what seems to be the problem?"
The woman says, "Doctor, I don't know what to do. Every day my husband seems to lose his temper for no reason at all. It's starting to scare me."
The Doctor tells her, "I think I have just the cure for that.  When it seems your husband is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth.  Just swish, and swish, but don't swallow it until he leaves the room or decides to go to bed."
Two weeks later, the woman returns, looking fresh and reborn.  The woman says, "Doctor, that was a brilliant idea!  Every time my husband started to lose it, I swished with water.  I swished and swished, and he calmed right down!  How does a glass of water do that?!"
The Doctor informs her, "The water itself does nothing.  It's having to keep your mouth shut that does the trick."
·         Got Poop?  Let me know!  I’m going to try to get this out every Wednesday so if you get it to me by Tuesday, I’ll try to include it.  Your input is appreciated.
