Crofton Rotary Club Comes to an End
The Rotary Club of Crofton has resigned it's charter effective July 1st, 2019. While there were 19 active and honorary members in the club, everyone had too many commitments and no one was available to file the four core officer positions. 
 
At a final dinner on June 11th at the Blue Dolphin the members decided to donate its remaining funds to the Crofton Christian Caring Council and The Complete Player Charity and to provide money to the Crofton Chamber who will continue the tradition of giving each Crofton 3rd grader a special dictionary/encyclopedia, as well as providing money to the Rotary Club of South AA County to fund attendance by two SRHS Interact student to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy. In attendance (from Left to Right in the picture) are Bob Johnston, Dina Oliver, Rankin Lusby, Ray Streib, Andy Schindling, John Hollywood, Bruce McIndoe, Wes Sherman, Club V.P. Cliff Oliver, Foundation Chair Tom Callahan and President Jim Harvey.
 
At the close of the meeting, the club presented Rankin Lusby with the gavel and bell that club has had for 50 years. Rankin, a member of the club since 1972, fittingly closed the final meeting of the Rotary Club of Crofton.
 
All monies raised at the Night Out to Help Out that were earmarked for specific causes or charities have been paid out. Arrangements have been made to continue several of the projects that Crofton Rotary was responsible for, including:
 
Flags for Heroes — This program will be managed by the Crofton Kiwanis Club. See https://www.croftonkiwanis.org/ or visit them at www.facebook.com/CroftonKiwanisClub/
 
Interact Club — The South River High School Interact Club has been turned over to the Rotary Club of South Anne Arundel County. See http://www.southcountyrotary.org. They will continue financial support, scholarship programs and RYLA programs.
 
Summer Fundraisers — The Chili Cook Off, Pie Bake Off, Dog Show and BBQ Cook Off, raising money and awareness for the Crofton Christian Caring Council and Rude Ranch will continue to be managed by Living in the Triangle magazine and hosted by the Crofton Kiwanis and Crofton Farmers Market. Registration information can be found at https://www.croftonchamber.com/FarmersMarket and questions can be directed to Jim Harvey at croftontriangle@gmail.com
 
From Sotweed to Suburbia — The books will remain on sale at Grumps and Family Bike Shop and will benefit the Friends of Lithicum Walks. 
 
Dictionaries — Third grade dictionaries will be distributed by the Greater Crofton Chamber of Commerce. Contact Judy Wilson at info@croftonchamber.com.
 
I thank everyone who has been a member, helped out, donate to our causes and helped make Crofton a better place to live. I wish you all the best.
 
Sincerely,
