Prime Bird Real Estate Hit the Auction Block
Submitted by Jennifer Vanlerberg
Even the best local real estate agents would have difficulty closing on fifteen homes in one evening, yet on February 10th, right here at our local American Legion, this event took place. Fifteen tiny homes (ok, bird houses) were auctioned as a fund raiser for Cub Scout Pack #372.
Here is a recap of the major awards:
Donivan Boyce brought home “Best of Show” for his double birdie condo/planter. Noah Vanlerberg achieved “Smallest”, and Blaze Kline’s was “Tallest.”
“Judge’s Choice” went to Boden Lanham, while “Best Scout Theme” was awarded to Levi Vanlerberg. Jackson Cook took the win for his “Most Recycled”
Shawn Albright won for “Held together by a string” and Connor Coup won this year for “Most Colorful.” Grady Delancy won for best “North Baltimore theme” Ian Ramirez took the “Most Natural” and finally, Kale McDonald won for “Most Patriotic.”
I would like to take this opportunity to mention and apologize to Mr. Kale McDonald. I forgot to mention him in my last article about the Pinewood Derby. I would like to take this moment to recognize that Kale, did in fact, race his derby car that day, and it was spectacular. Sorry for the
The scouts were also given their awards for the popcorn sale that took place in October. The winner from each den was given a whip cream pie to throw in the face of their Den Leader.
Huge thanks to all the Den Leaders that left that night smelling of rotten milk with whipped cream in their ears. You are all great people. Boden Lanham was the overall winner for this year’s popcorn sales.
We would like to thank the Judges, Hank Matthes, Krista Ducat, and Dawn Trout. We would also like to thank Auctioneer and overall loud talker, Alex Trout.
A huge thank you goes out to everyone that purchased a bird house, which allowed Pack #372 to leave the night $192.50 richer. Homeless birds will be flocking here when they see those gorgeous new homes.
Next up, our Blue and Gold Ceremony, March 3rd at the American Legion. We are also hosting our District Pine Wood Derby on March 16th, at North Baltimore High School.
Please be on the look out for a Padrone’s Pizza fund raiser that will be starting shortly for your Pack members.
