In our way of thinking here at Serendipity Farmhouse, our community needs Eagle Scouts and SFH needs bluebirds. So, what’s the connection between the Eagle and the bluebird?
Last year, our Knights of Columbus council sponsored a young man and his Eagle Scout service project. A member of our parish, his goal to was build a large number of birdhouses, designed specifically to provide shelter to Eastern Bluebirds, and to place them throughout the county.
To make a long story short, he was highly successful in that project. As you drive through the county you will see how his hard work and initiative have payed off. You can see the birdhouses that he and his fellow Scouts constructed in parks, near private homes, and in our parish cemetery. Yes, we even have one here at Serendipity.
You might ask, do these birdhouses really attract bluebirds?
Here are three pictures taken just a day ago that answer that question quite well.
It was my great honor last August to present this new Eagle Scout the Knights of Columbus certificate for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout and a letter of congratulations from Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight.
Also, it is our distinct pleasure here at SFH to have bluebirds as new neighbors.
