Crownsville woman to receive flag flown over U.S. Capitol

A Crownsville woman who registered to vote this year during a Severna Park Republican Women's Club registration drive will receive a flag that flew over the U.S. Capitol at a Christmas tea this afternoon.

Allyson Ridzinski was among those who registered in one of the club's voter registration drives.

Ms. Ridzinski, a resident of the county for nine years, had moved and had to re-register.

The flags, which come with a certificate saying they flew over the Capitol, can only be obtained through a member of Congress.

They are "difficult to come by and quite valuable," said club president Rita Brandford. "This is quite a prestigious gift, and the flag is a size she can fly at her own house."

Ms. Ridzinski, supervisor of the film library at Anne Arundel Medical Center, said she was "very surprised" to win the prize.

"We do hang flags, so it's very appropriate," she said.

The 20-year-old Republican Women's Club emphasizes voter registration as one of its projects, Ms. Brandford said.

The membership tea is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Information: 987-0391.
