Aeon principal Alfonso Narvaez was one of a number of folks receiving grant awards from Governor O’Malley at the Maryland Statehouse on Tuesday. The grant was awarded to the Anacostia Trails Heritage Area on behalf of the Potomac River Heritage Tourism Alliance (Alfonso is on the boards of both organizations). With him are Laurence Winston of the Prince George’s County African American Heritage Preservation Group and Aaron Marcavitch, Executive Director of ATHA.. The award ceremeny was one of several things going on in celebration of Maryland Day. A fife and drum corps heralded the arrival of a full scale replica of the Star Spangled Banner that had been delivered earlier in the day by the Pride of Baltimore.
