Yard signs expressing thanks to local Frontline workers in the COVID-19 crisis are available through an initiative created by the Downtown Chestertown Association and Main Street Historic Chestertown to benefit the Chester River Health Foundation.
The sign’s message is, “THANK YOU FRONT LINE: Hospital Staff, First Responders, Essential Workers. You’re Awesome!” The graphic design, which features a silhouette of Kent County, was donated by Locust Grove Studios in Kennedyville. The DCA is covering the costs of the signs, with production service provided by Riverside Unique in downtown Chestertown.
Those who want to display signs in front of their homes or businesses are asked to make a donation of $20 or more per sign. Signs will be delivered to any residence or business in Kent County for a $2 fee, or can be picked up Saturdays between 9:00 a.m. and noon outside Chestertown’s Town Hall, 118 N. Cross Street.
To order online, go to mainstreetchestertown.org and then to the “Buy Now, Enjoy Later” page already set up for the purchase of gift certificates from local shops and restaurants. To order by mail and pay by check, email firstname.lastname@example.org for an order form.
Proceeds will go to the Chester River Health Foundation’s COVID-19 Fund to help cover expenses such as protective gear and support services for medical staff and employees at the hospital in Chestertown.
