OAKLAND — Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown recently presented the Mountain Maryland Gateway to the West Heritage Area, a program of the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce, with a $30,000 matching grant in support of the PreK-12 Heritage Area Curriculum project, according to a news release.
“We are delighted to be awarded a Star-Spangled 200 grant,” said Dawn Hein, director of the Mountain Maryland Gateway to the West Heritage Area, in a news release.
