The collaborative’s on-air sponsor spots add to messages that several nonprofits run each year on WYPR to promote their major events, including Sultana Foundation, Tea Party Committee, and Main Street Chestertown. Main Street Chestertown is happy to contribute to and administer this exciting project to draw more visitors to our historic downtown commercial district.
