On Saturday, April 14th, the Chestertown and Washington College communities joined together for Community Unity Day. There were food trucks, vendors, nonprofits, businesses, and clubs that set up information booths and tables all along College Avenue & Calvert Street. Some of the community groups at the event included the Kent County Humane Society, the Kent Center, the Kent County Arts Council, and the Sultana Education Foundation. Washington College was represented by student organizations such as the Student Environmental Alliance, the GIS Lab, and the Miller Library. Between the food trucks, baked goods, barbeque, and snacks, there was plenty of great food to eat. Professor Elena Deanda, who helped organize the event, was also giving out free cookies from Washington College. All of these groups came together at the Community Unity Day to promote overall wellness, volunteerism, culture, and unity for the Washington College, Chestertown, and Kent County communities.
