Podcast Features Dr. Carol Benson talking about Boundary Amendment
This week’s Destination Annapolis podcast, hosted by our colleague Susan Seifried from Visit Annapolis and Anne Arundel County (VAAAC), is an interview with Four Rivers Executive Director, Dr. Carol Benson. Carol talks about Four Rivers, its mission, and how the Boundary Amendment that was approved on April 8th has changed the character and goals of the heritage area.
“Since 2001, the Four Rivers Heritage Area of Annapolis, London Town and South County has been working to help create a more livable and economically sustainable community for all by serving as a funding resource for non-profit organizations dedicated to preserving the region’s unique heritage. Listen as Four Rivers Executive Director Dr. Carol Benson explains how her organization uses every tool in its tool kit to help its partners tell their own stories in their own voices. Having just doubled the size of the heritage area, Four Rivers looks forward to helping even more organizations by administering grants and fostering collaborative efforts to help share stories that otherwise might be forever untold.”
