Good Spaghetti, But Some Ugly Waitresses!




Joppatowne Lions and Joppatowne Leo Members Dress Up For Charity


It was an interesting Saturday at the Patrick Dailey – Mark Logsdon Memorial Service Post #17 American Legion in Edgewood. Members of the Joppatowne Lions Club and the Joppatowne Leo Club, dressed up as Ugly Waitresses and Busboys, to serve a spaghetti dinner to guests.

The Lions decided to hold a Spaghetti Dinner to raise funds for their club at a meeting a few months ago. Members decided to make it interesting and have a competition between the male members to see who could dress up as the Ugliest Waitress. Each of the Ugly Waitresses chose to try to raise money for a charity of their choice, and the guests would vote to determine who the Ugliest Waitress would be. Once the Joppatowne Leo Club heard of this, they wanted a piece of the action as well.

Each of the participants chose an Ugly Waitress name and waited on guests as they came in. Once the guests were seated, the Ugly Waitresses waited on them and tried their best to “lay the charm” on the guests to earn their votes. One member, Shawn “Shawnifer” Sharpeta even raised by doing the Chicken Dance at the request of one of the guests. But it didn’t take long for Billy “Suga” Housley, to try to do better and he, or she, decide to break into the Macarena with the help of some of the Leos.

It was a fun evening for everyone in attendance and the Joppatowne Lions Club hope to make it an annual event. After all, the Winner would have to defend his, or her, crown. Speaking of which, congratulations to Billy “Suga” Housley for being named the Ugliest Waitress and raising money for his charity, St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital.
