2023 CCA Crofton Citizen of the Year
CCA Vice President Marsha Perry presented Lynn Pollock with the 2023 Crofton Citizen of the Year award at the Greater Crofton Chamber of Commerce’s annual Crofton Community Awards banquet. Lynn was nominated by six different residents for the award and the CCA Board of Directors unanimously selected Lynn for the award among a field of seven nominees. The details of the nominations made it clear why Lynn was deserving of the award. Lynn has volunteered for the St. Paul Quilters, the Prince of Peace Book Sale, the CCCC’s Food Pantry at Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, the Crofton Village Garden Club’s Garden Tour, the Prince of Peace Earth Care program, Linthicum Walks, The O’Malley Senior Center, and the Back-to-School Backpacks program. She also serves dinners at Sarah’s House and packs bagged lunches for the Lighthouse Shelter, and established and maintains the little Lending Library on Crofton Parkway in front of the Prince of Peace Church.
There’s more too … Lynn is seemingly everywhere. Lillian Van Rompay commented, “My goodness, how are there enough days in the week for her to do all of that? I don’t know how she does it, but she does it with unflagging energy and a smile on her face.” Nancy Durose summed it up when she said, “Lynn is a force for Good.” Congratulations to Lynn; Crofton is a better community thanks to you!
