Crofton Kiwanis, Crofton Rotary, and the Arundel Volunteer Fire Department (AVFD) are joining together to organize a special recognition of veterans and first responders from November 7 to 21, 2020. The Flags for Heroes program has become a Crofton tradition and everyone loves seeing the flags out on Route 3 at Lake Louise.
Proceeds from this event will go towards the AVFD. The flags will also be displayed around Memorial Day 2021. By sponsoring a flag, you can show both your patriotism and support for the Crofton community and the AVFD. There is an option to add a tag to the flag pole specifying the name of a veteran or first responder you want to honor. It costs just $50 to sponsor a flag and, optionally, $5.95 extra to add a placard with the name of your honoree.
To sponsor a flag online via credit card, go to
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/crofton-flags-for-heroes-2020-2021-tickets-117867150821. If you want to save on processing fees and prefer to pay by check, write to CroftonFlags@gmail.com and we’ll send you a PDF sponsorship form.
Don’t delay; orders must be completed by October 24!

The Kiwanis Club of Crofton has four families, inclusive of 16 children, that are part of the Adopt-a-Family program, led by Sharon Shipley. These families were provided with food (turkey and all the fixings) for Thanksgiving. In December, the families will receive an additional food package, plus a gift card to a local grocery store to purchase meat for their holiday meal. The parents also receive $60 gift cards for each child to be used to purchase Christmas gifts. The Kiwanis Club of Crofton has supported this project for over 20 years.
We were in the paper! And thanks to you all, we raised a bunch of money!!
