Chesapeake Multicultural Center Celebrates New Home in Easton

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md.- Friday was an important day for the immigrant community in Talbot County. The Chesapeake Multicultural Resource Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new home located on Dover Street in Easton.

Local leaders, clients and volunteers joined the ChesMRC staff during the emotional ceremony. The center has offered help for immigrants in Talbot and Dorchester counties for more than seven years. Earlier this year the center acquired the three-building property to expand its services.

The new location is twice as big as their old home and is located in the middle of the community it serves.

"We have a foundation now, a very strong foundation that we can build on and it's ours so... we can kind of shape and mold it to meet the growing and changing needs of the community," said Matthew Petters, the center's director.
