Sandy Spring Bank offers comprehensive products and services to help businesses, organizations and individuals succeed at whatever stage of life they are in. As a community bank with deep local roots, Sandy Spring Bank serves more than 30,000 businesses across the region, helping to create jobs and fuel the economy. “This year marks our 150th anniversary of serving clients across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., and our 25th anniversary of having a presence in the Annapolis community,” Senior Vice President Bob Mann explains. That is quite a milestone in the world of banking. “Today we are the region’s largest, locally-headquartered community bank. However, we remain true to the values and personal relationships that have shaped who we are today. We are not about deals and transactions, but rather lifelong interactions with our clients,” says Mann. His clients include both leading for-profit companies and some of the most prestigious not-for-profit organizations in the area. Additionally,
Sandy Spring Bank was named one of the 50 Most Trustworthy Financial Companies in America by Forbes for 12 consecutive years. Bob Mann himself is as much a part of the community as the bank. He grew up in Eastport and he and his wife raised their four children here, though he did leave the area to get his degree from Clemson University (he remains devoted to the Clemson Tigers). He currently serves as treasurer of the Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce. He and his wife especially like to support the arts and he takes his music seriously; “Americana music,” from classic country to Broadway musicals to Motown, he shares. Banking at its best should be a long-term relationship. It’s a matter of trust. And it is reassuring to have an accomplished neighbor to whom you can turn.

Erin Horst opened Evolutions in 2001 out of a love and respect for the fitness profession and a deep desire to help people struggling to find a place where they could feel comfortable working out. Fifteen years later, Erin is still dedicated to creating a supportive environment where fitness professionals can do what they do best and a welcoming facility that people of all backgrounds can call their “home away from home” for fitness. Evolutions’ philosophy focuses on the whole person—mind, body and spirit are equally important. Erin wants to spread mindfulness and wellness to as many people as possible. This desire stems from a personal struggle with depression and weight issues as a young person.
Erin started in the fitness industry at the age of 25, but soon discovered that without being well in mind and spirit, a fit body was not enough to achieve true wellness. After finding meditation and mindfulness at age 28, Erin’s life changed dramatically. Erin’s desire to create a space for wellness has only intensified as she has become a mother and grown older. In keeping with this philosophy, Evolutions offers a wide variety of classes and services that support health, fitness and wellness. As Erin likes to say, “When people are mindful, they treat people better; the better we treat each other, the better off the world will be.”

Greg Younger, owner of Younger Construction in Annapolis, grew up working with his father in the construction business. Over the years, Greg learned that he had both a gift for craftsmanship and a talent for understanding how to remodel a home to fit a client’s needs. Greg loved the satisfaction he felt when he completed a project and his clients were overjoyed with the results. To him there was no better feeling. Greg still works every day to achieve the same results. Younger Construction is highly skilled in both residential construction and light commercial construction. The company specializes in custom homes, renovations, additions, kitchens and bathrooms in Anne Arundel, Prince George’s, and Queen Anne’s counties. Before any work starts, Greg meets with potential clients to discuss their desires and vision. He listens to their expectations of the design, timeline and budget. Greg’s infectious energy helps clients overcome their fears and get excited about the project.
After Greg gets to know the client’s needs, he helps them select a design they will be happy with for the long run. Once the work begins, clients are amazed at the process. Greg and his detail-oriented crew do not cut any corners. They pride themselves on being perfectionists, and they understand the importance of clean lines. Above all, they strive to meet and exceed all client expectations. Greg checks in with his clients regularly to make sure they are happy with how the project is going. This personal touch engages clients and enables them to be part of the process. Instead of feeling like a chore, the project feels more like a fun hobby. Seeing the look of joy on a client’s face when a job is complete is what attracted Greg to the business decades ago. Today, it’s still his favorite part of the job.

Carrie Olish born and raised in Annapolis, learned to bake as a little girl spending time in the kitchen with her mother and grandmother. After she had children of her own, she began baking with them often sharing her cakes and cupcakes with family and friends. As friends and neighbors approached her to bake for their special occasions, they also encouraged her to start her own bakery and Blue Crab Cupcakes was born. Blue Crab Cupcakes is a boutique bakery who’s slogan “filled with love” was coined by a little boy, who after his first bite, smiled and said “my heart is filled with love!” Carrie and her team create cupcakes that are both delicious and unique. As Carrie explains, each cupcake is filled with a special filling
and baked with the highest quality and freshest ingredients available. It’s not unusual for a single cupcake to have four finishing elements —all directed by Carrie and her desire to deliver an incredible experience. With over 30 flavor offerings, customers can choose from mini or regular cupcakes, wedding and special occasion cakes and custom cake pops. Carrie has developed a large wedding and special event following. A special tasting room was recently added to the bakery where sampling and event planning takes place. Carrie’s passion for creating “sweet treats” can make any day a good day to “taste love”.

There are some things that just course through your veins, notes Wendy Rabin, owner of Wrabyn, a stylist-run boutique in West Annapolis. She was born with an innate sense of style that blossomed into a full-blown career. A stroll through her light-filled shop reveals unique yet relatable clothing, hard-to-find designers, and shoes and accessories to finish any outfit. Wendy’s style philosophy is refreshing. “Fashion, capital F, is a loaded word. It can be intimidating but it shouldn’t be. Fashion is a place for individualism, a space to express yourself, a way to take care of yourself. I guess you could say that I believe in fashion, small f.” Indeed, she expressed herself freely as a 4-year-old. “My first memory
of dressing was this little red rainbow striped romper with threequarter sleeves…I wore it with a feather in my hair to preschool on Wednesdays and it made me feel like superwoman!” Today, Wendy still believes in the power of a great outfit, and she and her staff of stylists share that sensibility with clients. Better yet, their services extend beyond the boutique with closet edits, wardrobe styling, and as a friendly resource for everyday fashion emergencies. At Wrabyn, Wendy’s philosophy comes alive. Here, one finds fashion (small f ), a welcoming space and more: a place to walk in feeling ordinary and walk out of feeling fabulous, with a personal superwoman-worthy style.

As a physician in the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County area for the past twenty years, Dr. Kahan has treated thousands of patients who suffer from chronic pain, whether from cancer or just back pain. With board certifications by more than six American Medical Boards in the U.S., Dr. Kahan is certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians and a Fellow in Interventional Pain by the World Institute of Pain Physicians.
As Dr. Kahan says â€œJust as my face has changed over the years, so has the management of pain. As a 20 year leader in my field, I strive to keep up with the multiple changes that have occurred in pain management. In doing so, I have found different ways to treat and control pain, without necessarily using opioid medications. As you may have read or heard, opioids have recently been stereotyped as a bad treatment for chronic pain and can produce undesirable side effects. If you are tired of or unsatisfied with the same treatment of your pain, then it may be time to change. Just as I have accepted changes in how I practice, maybe you should too. Please call to make a change and hopefully we can create a new plan to improve your health and your quality of life.â€?

Zia Boccaccio, Founder and Creative Director of Alpaca International, remembers the moment she was first inspired by the mystical alpaca. A native of Cuzco, Peru, she was on a family trip exploring ancestral land in the Andes Mountains. The animal, which she describes as “aloof, delicate, and beautiful,” inspired a life-long devotion to alpaca preservation and something more—a calling to design clothing that reveals their exquisite beauty. At 19, she struck off on her own and moved to Washington, D.C. where she worked in retail management. A desire to share the fabric of her culture propelled her to open her first store in the heart of Annapolis in 2004. She opened subsequent shops in Washington, D.C., Park City, Utah, Juneau, Alaska and Cusco, Peru.
Zia attributes her success to hard work, customer service and quality products. And she cares for the community. In 2012, she received the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award. In 2013, she won the Corporate Commitment Award for her work for Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA). The grant she created to help educate Peruvian youth stems from these activities. She earned the Successful Peruvian Business Woman in America Award in 2014 and, in 2015, a Tumi USA Award for Excellence in Business. Her many ventures complement her true love for the alpaca. This love flows through her creations, which exhibit the grace and resilience of the revered Peruvian alpaca fiber known as “the Gold of the Andes.”

Historic HABITATS BY SAR AH HAGERT Y
In Anne Arundel County, buildings steeped in history are always just around the corner... and open for our education and entertainment.
W I L L I A M PACA H O US E AND GARDEN The Paca House is a don’t-miss-experience in Annapolis. It was built in the 1760s for Paca, a signator of the Declaration of Independence and the third governor of Maryland. Remarkably, it has been lovingly restored, protected and preserved. Today it serves as a window to our past and often our future—it is one of the most desirable wedding locations in Maryland. 186 Prince George Street, Annapolis | 410.990.4543 Hours: Monday–Saturday, 10 AM to 5 PM Sunday, 12 noon to 5 PM $10 full guided house tour and self-guided garden tour. (There’s also a guided tour of the house’s first floor and a selfguided garden tour for a fee of $8 and a self-guided garden tour for $5. Closed January, February and early March.)

JAMES BRICE HOUSE The Brice House is the “newest” oldie but goodie on the Annapolis block. This “work in progress” is also providing a very special opportunity for all of us who love history—a look behind the scaffolding. The noble house (built by an Annapolis native son, former mayor, former governor and one of the largest land owners on the east coast) is being restored to its 18-century glory. 42 East Street, Annapolis | 410.267.7619 There are monthly tours scheduled during the summer (Saturday June 16th; Saturday July 21st, and Saturday August 18th). General admission is $18. Group tours can also be arranged.
CHASE -LLOYD HOUSE Construction of the Chase-Lloyd House began in 1769 when Samuel Chase was only 25 years old. (Yes, another signer of the Declaration of Independence.) Chase ran out of money and sold the home to wealthy plantation owner Edward Lloyd IV (hence the hyphenation). The desire for independence and love of their new country didn’t stop our founding fathers from borrowing the beautiful and imposing Georgian design from the old country. It was one of the last of its kind to be built in Annapolis and, though it has been restored and updated many times, it has remained true to its original design.
22 Maryland Avenue, Annapolis ChaseLloydHouse.org

Open Monday–Saturday 2 PM to 4 PM March through December (“Flat shoes please.” Always a good tip when exploring historical homes.) *
CHARLES CARROLL HOUSE The impressive home and gardens are perfectly situated on the Severn River. (If you had all of Annapolis to choose from—as Charles Carroll did back then—you might have picked this spot as well.) Appropriately located behind St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Charles Carroll’s home is part of Maryland’s long Catholic history. When the first Charles Carroll (known as “the Settler”) died in 1720, he was considered the wealthiest and largest land owner in the state. The Carroll family continued to support this new land including an ancestor who signed the Declaration of Independence. The family motto, “Anywhere So Long as There Be Freedom,” speaks volumes. 107 Duke of Gloucester Street, Annapolis 410.269.1737 | CharlesCarrollHouse.org Open weekends June through October from noon until 4 PM. Admission is free.
BENSON HAMMOND HOUSE A bit off the beaten path, the simple farmhouse charm of the BensonHammond House is especially evocative of a time gone by. (A little surprising considering its incongruous smack-in-the-middle-of-BWIacreage location.) The house is chock full of farm life artifacts, furniture, quilts and more. A real little charmer. Ann Arundell County Historical Society (yes, that is how they spell it) continues to operate the house as the only remaining example of what was once a thriving business in North Anne Arundel County—truck farming. 7101 Aviation Boulevard, Linthicum Heights | 410.768.9518 410.760.9679 (Ann Arundell Historical Society) | aachs.org Open Saturdays 11 AM to 3 PM and Sundays noon to 3 PM from March through December. However, their hours and days can change, so it’s always a good idea to call first.
THOMAS POINT SHOAL LIGHTHOUSE Built in 1875, it is the last screw-pile lighthouse on the Bay in its original location. Delightfully, what may be the most iconic image of the Bay, is open to the public. In the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the South River. Tours of the inside are offered during the summer on Saturdays—June 9; July 7, 14, 28; August 4, & 18; September 1, 8 & 29 and October 6. Times: 9 AM and 12 noon. $80 per person. Things you should know: • Only 18 passengers per tour. • Tour participants must be at least 12 years old and 48 inches tall. • No flip-flops, Crocs, open-back shoes or high heels. • The tour of the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse is adventure travel involving some physical exertion.
HOGSHEAD As modest as Paca House is grand, Hogshead served as a home for many billeted Revolutionary War recruits on their way to battles. It was fully restored in the 1960s and provides a look inside the life of our ancestral everyman. 43 Pinkney Street, Annapolis | 410.267.7619 Open weekends (Saturday and Sunday noon to 4 PM) late March to early December. Free admission, donations appreciated.
H AMMOND -H ARWOOD HOUSE This mansion is indeed a showplace. With its five-part plan and exquisite craftsmanship, it is one of the most significant examples of extant colonial architecture in the United States. William Buckland, the architect responsible for the ChaseLloyd House, brought his genius and innovative styles to the Hammond-Harwood property as well. 19 Maryland Avenue, Annapolis | 410.263.4683 Open noon to 5 PM daily. Closed Tuesday. Tours on the hour, $10, $8 for AAA members and senior citizens.

HISTORIC LONDON TOWN AND GARDENS London Town is a living history museum with gardens, out buildings, docent guides and the William Brown House, a national historic landmark, at its center. The house was built at the ferry landing on the South River by, appropriately, the ferry master William Brown. That South River location and the lush gardens have made London Town one of the areas most sought-after wedding and special event venues. 839 Londontown Road, Edgewater | 410.222.1919 Open April through November, Wednesday through Sunday 10 AM to 4:30 PM, closed Monday and Tuesday. Adult admission is $12 (there are discounts through AAA and senior discounts.) Kids admission varies according to age. - Always double check hours of operation and fees prior to your visits. -
