January 10th Meeting

Happy New Year, Fellow Lions!

Due to the Country Club being closed until mid-January…. we are doing things a little differently at our next meeting.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 6 p.m. at the Blue Bird Tavern on Washington Avenue. The folks at the Blue Bird help us sell shotgun raffles every year and the board thought there would be no better place to have our meeting and have the drawing for the shotgun raffle. This has been advertised inviting the general public to witness the drawing. This will not be a dinner meeting, however, the Blue Bird does sell some very good food if you wish to get something to eat while you are there. The Blue Bird is having a dinner special that night. The special will be Meatloaf with sides, etc. The Shotgun Raffle drawing will be right at 6 p.m. Lion Fred Sherriff has put a lot of hard work into this event. Please come out and join us – dress will be casual.
NO NEED TO RSVP.

Thanks,
Lion Glenn Owens, Secretary
Chestertown Lions Club

Fenton Lee Martin, Jr.

Fenton Lee Martin, Jr. passed away peacefully in Chestertown, Maryland on November 15, with his wife at his side. He was born in Portsmouth, Virginia on October 20, 1928, the only child of Fenton Lee Martin, Sr. and Marcia Penelope Martin nee Ferebee.

He attended public schools in Portsmouth, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the College of William and Mary in 1949. He went on to graduate from the Marshall Wythe Law School at W and M with the equivalent of today’s Doctor of Jurisprudence. During his studies, he served as the assistant to the dean of the law school. He then went on to earn a Master of Laws Degree from Harvard Law School in 1952, before entering the United States Air Force to serve as a First Lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General Corps during the Korean War.
After leaving the Air Force, Fenton served as a law clerk to the chief judge of the US District Court in Baltimore, Maryland and stayed there to practice law for nearly fifty years. He began as an associate with a six-man firm, and, after several mergers, he retired as a partner in Whiteford, Taylor, and Preston, a firm of over 100 lawyers.
Early in his career, Fenton argued a case before the Supreme Court of the United States, and he loved to show off his white quill pen, a traditional souvenir given newly admitted lawyers to the Court.
In 1964, Fenton married Jane Ann Garrette, and they raised two children, Roderick Lee Martin and Elizabeth Ann Vallarino nee Martin, living in the Roland Park area, but spending weekends, summers, and holidays first in Betterton and then in Chestertown to where they moved full-time after retirement.
Playing golf was Fenton’s favorite pastime along with spending time with friends and family.
Fenton is survived by his wife; their son and his wife, Beth; their daughter, called Lisa, and her husband Juan Carlos as well as six grandchildren: Lucas, Mateo, and Jack Vallarino and Tori, Ben, and Emily Martin.
A memorial service will be observed on Saturday, December 30th at 11:00 AM at St. Paul’s Church, Kent County. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Good Neighbor Fund of Kent County c/o First United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 227, Chestertown, MD 21620, or to the charity of your choice.
