Racing along ...
In other Grand Leprechaun news, rumors are flying that an unidentified individual was spotted outside the stone ice house at the Baldwin-Reynolds House Museum with a tape measure early Monday morning, immediately following the publication of candidate Josh Sherretts’ announcement that the adorable structure may be available to the highest donor.
While it is not known what he may have been up to, museum director Sherretts — who also teaches at Seton — was heard to remark that “The ice house is not for sale yet ... ummm ... I mean not for sale ... did I say yet?”
The object of Sherretts’ main attention, however, is Hat contender Amy Murphy Wells, a Seton mom and executive director of United Way of Western Crawford County, who launched her campaign with offers of top-donor access to the organization’s incredibly cute Smart Car.
“We can top flashy smart cars,” Sherretts was heard to mutter.
“The museum has a late 1800s carriage,” he continued, whispering conspiratorially to no one in particular. “Our top donor will get pulled — at least a few feet — by me, in the carriage, in the museum’s driveway.”
Unless, of course, someone has a horse who would be willing to pull Sherretts’ top donor in the parade in the museum’s carriage. Public-spirited horses with an interest in making a little history of their own are urged to consider this a formal R.F.P. (Request For Pullage) and contact the museum.
“I’m very excited that the race is off to such a spirited start,” Parade Heiress Eileen Mullen said Wednesday. “This will definitely prove to be one of the closest races to date. No question that the charities will benefit from the contestants’ desire to win the coveted green hat!”
