Our friends and partners at the Maine Turnpike Authority had a busy Labor Day weekend – nearly a MILLION vehicles passed through the Kittery toll plaza, which is up significantly over 2015. That’s a lot of people who chose to visit – and a lot of people who could choose to stay and enjoy the way life should be!
To help remind the visitors that Maine employers want people just like them to relocate here, we partnered with the Maine International Trade Center (MITC), Maine & Co., and the Maine Turnpike Authority to put a clear message on the back of every Almanac handed out…in Maine, you can have it all!

From the Maine Turnpike Authority website:
Maine Turnpike travelers headed southbound on Labor Day, Monday, September 5, 2016 will be thanked for visiting Maine by receiving the 2017 200th Edition of the Farmers’ Almanac at the York Toll Plaza. Almanacs will be distributed beginning at approximately 10:00 AM. With traffic up 6.3% over last summer, there will be plenty of visitors traveling through the York Toll to receive their free almanac. Year to date through the end of July, 2016 has had 2.78 million more vehicle transactions than the same period of 2015.
Miles the Moose will be on hand again this year with his friend, Clawdette the Lobster, and a handful of hearty MTA employees to pass out the almanacs and wave goodbye to visitors. “The 2016 almanac calls for showers on Labor Day this year” says Miles “I hope they are wrong, just this once!” Miles wants to remind everyone to drive safely and of course look out for wildlife in the roadways. “We want everyone to return home safely so they can visit again soon. Autumn in Maine is awesome.”
