According to the Dundalk Eagle, Weis Markets is stepping up to help the Dundalk Heritage Fair with a $20,000 donation. For years, Mars Supermarkets was one of (if not the biggest) sponsors of the Heritage Fair. When it was announced that Mars was closing last summer and being bought out by Weis, there was a big void in the community as Mars sponsored many of these community events.
Whether it was fair or not, many residents were privately expecting Weis to take over Mars’ role as community sponsor since they were taking over the stores. That was a little unfair to Weis since the company is based out of Pennsylvania and usually corporate has to sign off on a large donation such as $20,000, but it happened.
The Eagle reported that Weis managers Bill Volz; Dundalk, Bill Siegmund; Essex, and Rob Santoni Jr. of Perry Hall joined together to present the check and these gentlemen should be commended. Weis did step up to the plate and the community should be thankful for their donation.
Happy 4th everyone.
