ROOST #79 governed by the Council of the Ravens Roost, was established in April, 2004 at the Corinthian Lounge,
Windsor Mill Road in Woodlawn, MD.
It initially began with 11
Corinthian regulars, however, by the time we were incorporated in May,
2004, we had over 90 members and growing at a rapid pace increasing our
membership to 255 members....And that was just our first year. In
addition, Roost #79 provides support and charitable contributions to
many Woodlawn residents with a special emphasis to the homeless, abused
adults and families who may be in need or have fallen on hard times.
The purpose and objective of this organization is to maintain a Non-Profit Corporation
focused on the uniting of its membership in fellowship and service
to the community at-large. Our focus will be on local charitable, and
educational scholarships, as well as those in need and other similar
non-profit purposes through the promotion of the game of professional
football. Any contributions; either material or monetary, shall be used
to support those local charities and/or educational scholarships and the
needy as recommended and agreed upon by its membership. This Roost
shall not engage in any political activities whatsoever.
