Lions COY
Lions Citizen of the Year – Shelly Cumpstone
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".
President's Message
Carrie Sassi
As I write this letter I am celebrating a gorgeous spring day. I hope you all enjoyed this past April, simply glorious! On April 20th the Chamber Board of Directors hosted our annual meeting and election of officers at the Killingworth Library. The event marked the end of my term as President of the Chamber Board and the baton is passed to Tim Gannon.

Tim is no stranger to Chamber members or the Killingworth Community. In January of 1993 the first Krier was established. Tim is one of the founding members and establishing a news publication that highlighted the business community in town was one of his goals. The Chamber itself was established five years prior. During those early years Tim served as President to the Board, and has served on every committee in a generous way ever since. Thank you, Tim, for stepping up and taking the reins once again. Please see the inside front page for a listing of the new officers and Board members.

The Chamber would like to welcome the following new members: Nikki Travaglino & Associates of Sotheby's Realty, 102B Broad Street, Guilford. Chris O'Bymachow of William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty, 73 Church Street, Guilford. Ann and Lee of Ann's Nails and Spa, 184 Route 81, Bldg 2, Killingworth. Ethan Drain of DrainScapes, 86 River Road, Killingworth.

Please note the following corrections in last month's issue of the Presidents letter - Joseph Nuzzo is the owner of Shore Electric and Jay Selmer is the owner of Sprout Landscaping. Both businesses are from Higganum.

Our May Business After Hours will be hosted by JV Wine & Spirits on Thurs. May 14th from 5 - 8 p.m. In celebration of his four-year anniversary, Saurin Mehta will offer a tasting of Rosé and alternative white wines. Please see the next page for details.

A Contractors Breakfast at Parmelee Farm is planned for Father's Day - Sunday, June 21st from 8-11 a.m. We are celebrating our many contractors and their families for their generosity within our community. Many have donated so much time, energy, expertise and supplies to town projects, often on a volunteer basis. The breakfast will also provide a networking opportunity for contractors who may not have a chance to take part in our standard events. Look for details in the June Krier.

In closing I would like to extend my appreciation and thanks to the Killingworth Chamber of Commerce Board and to the Killingworth Krier Staff. My two year term as President has been rewarding and has helped me grow personally as a business owner. I've enjoyed meeting and networking with so many of you - the Chamber members as well.

Next Meeting of the Board of Directors – May 12th, 7 p.m. at the Town Hall. All members and business owners interested in joining the Chamber are welcome.
