Harris deserves our thanks
Congressman Andy Harris deserves our thanks for working to protect the process that is helping to clean up Chesapeake Bay. He voted to try to beat back an amendment to the U.S House Interior Appropriations bill that would weaken the state/federal partnership that is making good progress in improving water quality in the Bay.
Unfortunately, the amendment passed. Now our U.S. Senators Mikulski and Caardin must must work with Congressman Harris and the entire Maryland House delegation to stop this misguided provision from ever becoming law.
Thank you Congressman Harris! Wye River campus. I am writing to clarify two points:
First, in addition to the Institute, the Queen Anne’s County Historical Society also co-hosts this annual heritage event, which, unfortunately, was not mentioned in the article. The society deserves much credit for developing the agenda, confirming the participation of dignitaries and other officials, and for helping the Aspen Institute in sustaining this significant annual cultural event in Queen Anne’s County and the Eastern Shore of Mar yland.
Second, the article refers to the monument on the property dedicated to Declaration of Independence signer William Paca as his gravesite. While some of his descendants are buried at the property, we do not believe William Paca is buried there. The granite marker erected in his memory in 1910 by the Maryland Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution is often confused as a grave stone.
Thank you again for informing the public of this wonderful tradition and we look forward to co-hosting this event again next year with the Queen Anne’s County Historical Society.
