CHESTERTOWN — In January, Glenn Wilson, president and CEO of Chesapeake Bank and Trust Co., presented a donation of $5,000 to Mayor Chris Cerino in support of the Chestertown Marina revitalization project.
Since it purchased the marina property in 2012, the Town of Chestertown has raised more than $5.7 million from a variety of state, federal and private sources, according to a news release.
During the second half of 2018, the town 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,” Cerino said in the release.
According to the release, it is anticipated that the Chestertown Marina will generate a direct economic impact of $1.7 to $2.2 million 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 in the release.
Chesapeake Bank and Trust is a community bank founded in 1986, locally owned and directed by area business and community leaders.
