Brunswick Main Street awarded grant to support projects and activities relating to the preservation and heritage of The C&O Canal.

"This funding allows Main Street to talk about our Canal heritage in a really fun, hands-on, and family-friendly way..." Alyssa Theodore, Promotions Committee member

Brunswick Main Street (BMS) is thrilled to announce it has been awarded $892.38 from the C&O Canal Endowment Fund for Frederick County and The Community Foundation of Frederick County. The fund was created “to support projects and activities relating to the preservation and heritage of The C&O Canal National Historical Park, with preference given to those portions of the Canal located in Frederick County.”

Promotions Committee member Alyssa Theodore found it hard to contain her excitement. “I can’t wait for the big reveal. This funding allows Main Street to talk about our Canal heritage in a really fun, hands-on, and family-friendly way by creating C & O Canal history ‘celebration packs’ aimed at kids ages 4 and up.”

BMS will be celebrating the Anniversary along with the City and other community groups on July 3, 2021 from 10am-5pm throughout downtown. Come and visit the Main Street booth to pick up a pack while supplies last. What sorts of things will you find inside? A hint: one item encourages kids to “play well.”
