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.

 

Kiwanis Halloween Parade

The Crofton Kiwanis Club Halloween parade will be held on Saturday, October 29th.  Children in costume should register at 10 a.m. at Prince of Peace Church and will join the parade a little after 11 a.m.  The parade of bands, horses, cars, etc. forms at Crofton Woods Elementary school, then leaves at 11 a.m. and marches to and picks up the children at the Prince of Peace Church.  The entire parade then ends at Crofton Elementary School. 

Following the parade there will be refreshments and crafts for the children.  Last year Carol the Witch also told spooky stories

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.


For our September meeting Club VP Pat Heelen gave a talk and video presentation on the Mission of Mercy charity that provides free medical and dental services and prescriptions to uninsured or underinsured residents in the Frederick to Harrisburg area in need of healthcare.


For our August meeting we had Cathy Rosenbaum, Executive Director of Maryland Therapeutic Riding, speak about their program.  We also gave a substantial contribution to the Crofton Christian Caring Council,  presented a scholarship check and presented a Teen of the Year award check to two of our outstanding Key Clubbers.  We also welcomed two new members to our club!


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 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. 


 

Our 28th Annual 10K Race on Saturday, June 11th was a great success! 

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