A Sign of Good Things to Come


This is one of the new Thurmont Main Street signs installed this past week on the roads leading into Thurmont.
Thanks to Commissioner Bill Blakeslee, Vickie Grinder and John Concannon, Frederick Office of the State Highway Administration. This sign is located just east of the Rte. 15 South interchange on Rte. 77.  The others can be seen at  Rte. 806 & Frederick Road,  Rte. 550 & Rte. 15 and in front of the Elementary School on Rte. 550.


Our First Grant:
Within weeks of being named as a Main Street Community we applied for and were awarded a matching grant from the DHCD.  The grant will be used for Main Street signage, public seating downtown and for a project to improve the cross walks at the square.  The value of the grant is $4,000.00 and the Town of Thurmont has agreed to support our effort by funding the seed money.
