This Month's Krier
Lions Citizen of the Year Shelly Cumpstone
Lions COY
Whenever a Lions Club forms, the community they serve is enriched. The Killingworth Lions Chapter began in 1970 and currently boasts 55 active members who assist our community through various local causes year round. One of its most appreciated events is the Annual Seniors Dinner. During the evening, the Lions present their prestigious Citizen of the Year Award to an outstanding Killingworth resident. Shelly Cumpstone was the honoree at this year's dinner which took place at St. Lawrence Church on March 28th.

From Joe Ferjak, Lions President--"It has been a tradition with the Killingworth Lions that community service should be recognized through the Citizen of the Year Award. The selection criteria includes at least three activities the recipient has been involved in that make Killingworth a better place. Leadership in each area is a must and we work closely with the Selectman's office to determine eligible candidates. Shelly Cumpstone easily personifies our Lions motto "WE SERVE".

From the Selectman's Office "Shelly Cumpstone has been an indispensable member of our community for over 25 years. Without Shelly's leadership the Killingworth Library would not be what it is today. She spearheaded town-wide fund raising efforts to construct the current Library building and you may recognize her as one of the volunteer faces behind the circulation desk from 1995 through 2010. She has served on the Board of Directors of the Killingworth Library Association for fifteen years and counting.

Since 1990 Shelly has been involved with the H-K Soccer Club in rolls ranging from referee coordinator to President. Her volunteer efforts in this area include refereeing countless soccer games for premier, travel and high school matches. As if that weren't enough, Shelly has also served on the H-K Recreation Authority and the Killingworth Park and Recreation Commission for many years.

In Gratitude for all that she has done for our townspeople, the Killingworth Board of Selectman do hereby proclaim the 28th day of March, 2015 Shelly Cumpstone Day. " Over the years, Shelly, husband Peter, and their sons Tucker and Greg have helped countless families create cherished holiday memories as they choose Christmas trees, wreaths and garlands on the Cumpstones' beautiful Winterberry Farm. Shelly is also a licensed realtor with Coldwell Banker where her goal is to serve buyers and sellers with attention to detail and continuous communication throughout the client's experience.

Congratulations for an award so richly deserved!
