Welcome  

The Kiwanis Club and Foundation of Crofton, Maryland serves the Greater Crofton area, focusing on the needs of children and families, community involvement and enrichment, and service to the citizens. Examples of our activities include the Annual Crofton Halloween Parade, the Annual 10K Race, "Rebuilding Together," Salvation Army bell ringing and quarterly blood drives.  Our charitable activities include service to the aged at the Crofton Convalescent Center, Sarah's House, the Crofton Caring Council, and assistance to Wounded Veterans.  We also fund other charitable causes on an ad hoc basis. 

Contact Membership Chair Dan Scholfield at (410) 721-1729 or danscholfield@gmail.com to find out more about Kiwanis or to inquire about joining.

Our 28th Annual 10K Race was Saturday, June 11th. 

Each of the 19 first place finishers (overall and age groups) received a Chipotle dinner for 10.

Regular Monthly Meetings

Monthly Crofton Kiwanis Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Blue Dolphin Seafood Bar and Grill banquet room (lower level, rear entrance).  Guests are always welcome for our regular meetings and to listen to our program's guest speakers.


In upcoming weekly meetings this summer we will present our Teen of the Year award.  We also plan to hear from Dr. Robert Karlsberg speak on stress relief.


For our July meeting we had Michele Corkadel represent County Executive Steve Schuh's office to discuss county items of interest, including infrastructure projects and the immense problems with herion addiction and overdoses in the county.  We also presented two scholarships to our outstanding Key Club winners.


At our June meeting we stuffed packets for the 28th Annual Crofton Kiwanis 10K.  There was no speaker or formal program.


Our May meeting was be held in the back room of Ledo's Pizza instead of the Blue Dolphin and we had our election of next year's officers. 


At our April meeting we had Jon Marsiglia of Chesapeake AED Services discuss CPR and the use of defibrillators.


At our Wednesday March meeting we heard from our sponsored Key Clubbers as they shared their experiences at the recent Key Club Convention.


At our February meeting we had Chief Dave Ayers of the Arundel Volunteer Fire Department and Past President Kathleen "Kitty" Gross speak about the services our local firefighters provide.


Our speaker at our January meeting was Ms. Tracy Lynott, Development Director for Bello Macre, a Glen Burnie-based nonprofit organization that provides residential and care services in Anne Arundel County and Carroll County for adults with developmental disabilities.


At our November meeting at Walden Country Club we had a speaker from the Hospice of the Chesapeake.  He discussed the hospice's new care facility in Pasadena, Maryland and the Honor Salute program for terminally ill veterans, which was very appropriate on Veteran's Day.  We also had a visit from "Jon" Rife of Grundy, Virginia who is a candidate for Governor of the Capital District for 2016-2017. 


Our speaker at the October meeting was with the Maryland State Board of Elections and discussed new changes for the state's voting process.
