  1. a request for STS: Maryland Day is observed twice a year, once in St Marys City (weekend) & once on its day, at Coltons Point. The island is no where near the size it once was. There should be a shuttle available to Coltons Point, the day of, at the event. The STS gets no where near coltons point. Just for the 1 day, there should be transportation to the actual event where Maryland Day takes place. why does this have to be requested?
