Just a few quick reminders …
Roost #4 holds their Annual Bull & Oyster Roast at 7pm this Saturday night (3/23) at The Lodge in Catonsville. The event is basically SOLD OUT. Our two Roost #4 Formula 4 Success Scholarship awards will be presented to the recipients at the event! Members attending are still encouraged to donate a bottle of booze to be used as a prize on the wheel (if you haven’t already done so).
Roost #4 has their monthly meeting at 7pm this coming Monday night (3/25) at Jilly’s.
As for the raffle tickets for the two 2013 Ravens Season tickets, if you haven’t yet picked-up your raffle tickets (all Roost #4 members are committed to sell at least 5 tickets each), please do so prior to Monday’s meeting at Jilly’s (tickets will be available from 6-7 pm) or at our Bull & Oyster Roast this Saturday (from 7-9pm). If you’re unable to attend the bull roast or meeting, please ask a friend to pick-up your tickets so we don’t have to mail them out. The raffle of the Ravens season tickets funds our Roost #4 Formula 4 Success Scholarship Fund.
Bob and Wendy Caldwell will be doing the 18th annual March for the Animals, the Maryland SPCA’s largest annual fundraiser. They are looking for Roost members to join in the fun and do the walk with them. Those interested to contact Bob at mr.bobcaldwell1[at]hotmail.com. Walkers can bring their dogs, and although cat owners walk the event, it is usually without their pets.
If there is enough interest from the Roost, Bob would like to form a Ravens Roost pack, and have ‘Ravens Roost 4′ appear on our event t-shirts.

Last Saturday was another fun day for Ravens Roost #4 with many members coming out to Jilly’s for a sports trivia challenge. A good time was had by all while raising money for The Special Olympics.
Ravens Roost #4 is holding a Sports Trivia Challenge at 2:00pm on Saturday, February 9th up at Jilly’s to benefit Special Olympics Maryland. Cost is $10 per person – up to four people per trivia team. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams. Contact Jeff “Frosty” Volmer to sign-up. C’mon out, continue the celebration of the Ravens winning Super Bowl, and test your sports knowledge!
Roost 4 members Candace & Jack Skurnik, Kim & Dennis Colhouer, Anna & Frosty Volmer, & Mitch Hooper were in Laurel this morning supporting the Laurel FOP and their Strikes 4 Special Olympics. All proceeds from the charity bowling event go towards the Deep Creek Dunk and SOMD.
The super plungers (plunging once an hour for 24 hours) made their 23rd hourly dip. You need to raise $10,000 to be a super plunger.
Nothing like an “O” to let you know you are in the Baltimore area.
Go time!!! We all made a way into the water for the ice cold plunge!!!!
At the time of this post the Roost had raised $785. Check this page for more information or to make a donation:
This year the Ravens Roost adopted 7 families of three children each through the Salvation Army for our Pay It Forward effort. Seven team captains volunteered to take on the responsibility of raising $100.00 for food gift cards and presents (clothes and toys) for the families. The Roost also donated an additional $700.00 dollars for food for Thanksgiving for those same families.
In addition Ravens Roost #4 donated toys to the Families Who Have been Affected by Domestic Violence. In that effort, Jack and Candace raffled off a Torrey Smith autographed jersey to buy clothes and toys. Jack and Candace also held a toy drive during the Roost’s annual Christmas party and bowling event to raise money for Special Olympics.
Candace was happy to report that her SUV was loaded to the ceiling with all of the generous gifts. Jack and Candace, as chair of this years effort, want to thank each of you for your kindness. It means so much for these families.
