Record Observer - - COMMUNITY -

STEVENSVILLE — Found­ing mem­ber Martha M. Lostrom of Stevensville has been named the Ro­tar­ian of the Year by the Kent Is­land Ro­tary Club. Lostrom put to­gether the new club’s first project, the pub­li­ca­tion “Kent Is­land Tales & Tastes” that re­flects on both the past her­itage and cur­rent fo­cus of life on Kent Is­land. The book, which is avail­able at Love Point Deli, will be sold by mem­bers for $10 dur­ing Kent Is­land Day on Satur­day, May 20, in down­town Stevensville. One hun­dred per­cent of the book price goes to com­mu­nity sup­port do­na­tions. “The book was launched ini­tially for last year’s Kent Is­land Day cel­e­bra­tion but an un­ex­pected rain storm saw the whole event can­celed,” she said. Pro­ceeds from the book are en­abling the club to sup­port many lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties, sponsor schol­ar­ships and sup­port other non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions.

“Right now we are work­ing on our ‘Flags for He­roes’ project that will have 200 or more flags sup­port­ing vet­er­ans, mil­i­tary mem­bers as well as fire­men, po­lice­men and oth­ers who serve to pro­tect,” Lostrom added.

The flags will be dis­played along the south side of U.S. Route 50 near Five Guys and Adam’s Ribs over the Memo­rial Day week­end. It is part of a larger dis­play of flags from other clubs, such as Cen­tre­ville Ro­tary along the Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege area and over 2,000 flags now dis­played along U.S. Route 50 in Eas­ton.

Con­tact any Ro­tary of Kent Is­land mem­ber to have a flag named for your hero. The names of each hero will be pub­lished in the news­pa­per. Cost is $50 for the flag dis­play and cor­po­rate spon­sor­ships are avail­able. To pay by credit card or for ques­tions, con­tact Brad Lund­berg, pres­i­dent, Ro­tary of Kent Is­land at 410-643-3334; cor­po­rate spon­sor­ships be­gin at $250.

Ro­tary meets at 7:30 a.m. at The Inn of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Beach Club and vis­i­tors as well as prospec­tive mem­bers are al­ways wel­come.
