GRANT AWARD

Great news for our community! The Recreation Commission of the Antietam Valley was awarded over $277,000 in grant funding to expand and redevelop Carsonia Park, following the Master Plan completed last year.

Thanks to all of you who have been supporting AVCP’s work to raise funds to support the Master Plan—at our last meeting we pledged $20,000 for park improvements, bringing the total raised by AVCP to $33,000, which, in addition to funds provided by Mount Penn, Lower Alsace and the Water Authority, helped make up the match funding that made these applications possible.
