During the second half of 2018, the Town of Chestertown issued a request for donations from members of the community to help complete renovations at the Marina. “The Town and I are grateful for Chesapeake Bank’s generosity and example in helping us to finish this terrific project for Chestertown,” said Mayor Chris Cerino.
It is anticipated that Chestertown Marina will generate a direct economic impact of 1.7 – 2.2 million dollars annually while preserving an important part of the Town’s history, culture, and heritage. “Chesapeake Bank is very proud to support the Town’s efforts to improve Chestertown’s economic vitality, livability and attractiveness, as this marina project certainly will,” said Wilson.
