Meet Paul Lundberg, Recreation Coordinator at the Northeast Community Center

News Release, Calvert County Governemnt

Paul has worked for Calvert County Government in his current position at the North East Community Center since May 2018. As a recreation coordinator, he brainstorms ideas for new programs that can be held at the community centers. Some of the ideas come from life experiences, such as going to concerts and seeing spectacular lights and special effects.

This was the inspiration behind the Northeast Community Center’s wildly successful glow-in-the-dark basketball program. Other ideas come from thinking of new ways to use materials already on hand. For example, one of Northeast Community Center’s most popular programs-the obstacle course-came about after coming up with a new purpose for excess gymnastics equipment.

In addition to program preparation, Paul also supervises instructors, volunteers, and other staff that work at the community centers, and schools in Parks & Recreation’s northern district.

The facilities in the county’s northern district average 12,000 visitors per month and have also become popular venues for birthdays, baby showers and other special events. “We hit the whole circle of life,” he said. “It’s just great to see people celebrating things together.”

Paul obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Purdue University. Prior to working as a recreation coordinator, Paul worked at Parks & Recreation as a recreation assistant coordinator and a sports assistant coordinator. Thank you, Paul, for all that you do for Calvert County and the Town of Chesapeake Beach!

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
