The Maine Bicentennial Commission is encouraging Maine schools and communities to focus on four key themes in celebrating Maine's 200th.

In designing the Features segment for this site, I adopted these four themes as categories to explore and write about as we count down to 2020 and celebrate the Bicentennial year. 

The Maine Character

Living In Maine

The Business Of Maine

Maine Leads
