It's a passing of an Maryland Icon when you mention the Tawes name and Mr. Tawes was part of a long line of Marylanders who contributed so much to the history, development ,conservation, and education of Marylanders . Very few families can boast of the contributions that the Tawes family has done for the state of Maryland. He will be missed6016328_BG1-1.jpg

Great times.
