Crofton Craft Fair is Saturday, September 24

The Crofton Craft Fair is a long-standing tradition in this community, and many people look forward to it on the last Saturday of September and April each year. 

The Greater Crofton Chamber of Commerce will sponsor this event for the first time, on Saturday, and their enthusiasm for this project is showing.  If the weather gods smile on that day, it should be more fun than ever.

The craft fair will be held at Crofton Country Club parking lot from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  In addition to craft vendors, several community organizations will be represented including the Crofton Regional Community Center (CRCC).

The CRCC will be located at the north end of the parking lot, and volunteers will be selling raffle tickets for 3 e–readers to be awarded at the Book Lovers Auction on November 12.  I’m betting they’ll also have tickets for that event and information brochures about the new community center.

If you happen to notice the aroma of chicken cooking, it’s not your imagination.  It will will be boy scouts, across the street at the Village Green parking lot.  Hurry on over there and order a half chicken, before it’s gone!

Crofton supports our neighbor, Emma Warner

Baby Bears Buddies BenefitEmma Warner grew up in Crofton, and her parents probably expected to throw a college graduation party for her in 2011.  Instead, they’ll be attending a benefit for her at Blue Dolphin on June 16, from 4-7 p.m.

This event is our way of showing support to the Warner family as they face the daily challenges of rebuilding her body and brain, following a massive stroke that occurred when she was in recovery after surgery earlier this year.

If you’re unfamiliar with Emma’s story, you can click on Baby Bears Buddies Benefit and read the second page of the flier.  The first page has all the details for next week’s benefit at the Blue Dolphin.

Please join us!

Kiwanis 10k in Crofton on Saturday

The annual Kiwanis 10k on the Saturday before Father’s Day is one of many Crofton traditions that make this community a special place to live. 

Kiwanis 10KThe 23rd annual Kiwanis 10k Challenge will be held this Saturday, June 11, beginning at 8 a.m. at Crofton Country Club, circling Crofton Parkway and making a detour into the “E” section and the “S” sections.  My friends at Team Surlis of RE/MAX Leading Edge will co-sponsor the event, along with the Kiwanis Roundation, to raise money for local charities.  Chick-fil-A, Curves of Crofton, and Friends of Crofton Kiwanis will provide refreshments, which will include bagels, fruit and drinks.

The course is relatively flat, with a few gentle slopes, and there will be water stations provided at three points along the course, as well as the start/finish.  Portable toilets will be available at the race site and medical support will be on hand.  As of today, it looks like the Saturday temperature will be in the mid-80’s, with a chance of thunderstorms later in the day.

Residents of the community will have restricted access for driving on Crofton Parkway during this event, and a wait of several minutes may be required before you can head out for your Saturday morning appointments and errands.  Long time residents of Old Crofton have learned, over the years, to plan accordingly.

Results and photos of this year’s Kiwanis 10k Challenge will be posted online at the Crofton Kiwanis website within 48 hours after the race.
