Yesterday (March 15, 2021) was Maine’s 201st birthday.  That pandemic thing we have been dealing with kind of threw things off track for all the events that were planned for 2020.  But yesterday, on Maine’s 201st birthday a new time capsule was unveiled and will be set in place this fall to be opened in 100 years.

I don’t normally get excited about time capsules but I bet that will be a fun one to open in 100 years…with all this stuff from all that was life in 2020.

SO what are we going to do?  Good question.  I know a number of events have been rescheduled for this summer.  There are events around the state of Maine including sailing ships, a parade, expo, and the sealing up and placement of that time capsule.

You can keep up to date on the events that are planned and what is being added at

There is also swag like maple syrup, a special license plate, and some other fun things.

But let us not forget this is a big deal and take this chance to learn a little bit more about the great state of Maine.  The Maine bicentennial website also has some great information on the history of Maine.
