While we never needed another reason to declare our love for Maine, the 200th anniversary of it becoming a state is a good one! If you want to wear your pride for the Pine Tree State proudly, you can do so with a Maine Bicentennial hat featuring Maine’s logo “I Lead”.
Once part of Massachusetts, Maine became independent—very independent—in March of 1820. Official State of Maine Bicentennial Commission members—men and women from all over Maine, with a range of perspectives and expertise—have volunteered to Lead the Way in helping Mainers celebrate this milestone. Maine’s bicentennial is a unique occasion to draw residents, visitors, public servants and private businesses together to commemorate 200 years of statehood, celebrate Maine’s present, and inspire a healthy and prosperous future.
“Maine” means more than a place on the map. It’s the sum of thousands of fascinating stories about land and sea, people and politics, progress and challenges. Represent the place, the people and the stories by waving your state flag proudly, cheering on your local Maine teams, wearing your state’s name across your hat and shirt, or toasting to 200 years of progress with a “Dirigo” pint or wine glass.
By purchasing any item from Lisa-Marie’s Made in Maine, you are supporting local individuals and local businesses. That in itself is giving back to the community and sends a little love to the big state we call hoME.
