STEVENSVILLE — “We make charity happen” is the slogan of Chesapeake Charities, and this year the organization hosted its sixth annual Celebration of Service honoring those who serve veterans.

On Nov. 9, as guests arrived at the Chesapeake Beach Club, a prominent line of large American flags were posted, waving in the breeze to greet especially the veterans and those who serve them. Also, through the efforts of Kent Island Cruisers Paul Placek and Mike Francis, there were a number of distinguished antique cars in the parking lot, with Placek and others waving American flags.
