The “America’s First Honoring Maryland’s First” event held on February 22nd at the Elks Lodge in California was a huge success!
Sheriff Cameron remarked, “We honored Sheriff Joe Lee Somerville, the first African American Sheriff in Maryland’s history, as well as the gifted team of writers and researchers responsible for our two books, America’s First and The Sheriff’s Of St. Mary’s County. It was a wonderful night celebrating notable events in the history of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.”
Attendees included several deputies who were under Sheriff Somerville’s command - David Zylak, Becky Norris, Ernest Carter, Phil Cooper, Jeff McLane, Tim Bennett, Jamie Raley, Andy Holton, George Kramer and Sheriff Cameron.
Sheriff Cameron extends his heartfelt thanks to all that made this wonderful event happen, especially the co-hosts of this event, the NAACP of St. Mary’s and the UCAC. It was a night to remember.
