Nominees are sought for partnership award

The Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce and county public school system are seeking nominees for their Business Partnership of the Year award, to be presented with three other education awards next month.

Nominees must be members of the Chamber of Commerce who participated in a partnership with a county school during the past year. Nomination deadline is April 14.

The winner of the business award, the county's public and private school teachers of the year, and the winner of the Innovation in Education award will be honored May 11 at the Awards for Excellence in Education dinner at the BWI Marriot. The nomination period for the teaching awards ended Friday.

Organizers also seek sponsors for the awards banquet. For a $300 sponsorship, contributors will receive four tickets to the dinner, as well as two tickets for a nominated teacher and a guest.

For information on nominations or sponsorships, contact the Chamber of Commerce at 410-268-7676.

Weems and Plath Inc. buys larger facility in Eastport

The owners of Weems and Plath Inc. in Eastport have bought a larger, more modern facility in the community to house the 47-year-old company.

Weems and Plath, at the old Trumpy Boat Yard at 222 Severn Ave., has been in business since 1953, when Capt. Philip Van Horn Weems of Annapolis joined forces with German-based C. Plath. The company makes nautical equipment and distributes navigation instruments -- mainly compasses and sextants -- across North America.

The new building at 214 Eastern Ave. will become home to the Weems and Plath warehouse and production operations, as well as its 16-employee office.

Renovations have begun at the property, where total space will be expanded to nearly 10,000 square feet after a partial second story is added. Company officials expect to move in by August.
