We're coming up on our four-year anniversary as owners of the Maine Needham Company, and we have to say, it's been an amazing journey! Some of our favorite highlights include:
Being featured on Boston Channel 5 Chronicle and Maine Channel 13 Maine Makers
Presenting on Career Day at our local elementary school
Sharing Maine Needhams at the Maine Historical Society's annual Open House
We also hired our first of part-time employees, and signed a lease on a new commercial facility - more on that to come. Move-in day is around the corner!
But the most exciting thing about this year is that we now have an official, state-sanctioned holiday!
Last year we reached out to our local state representative, Maggie O'Neil, with the request for our Governor to issue a proclamation in recognition of 150 years of Maine Needhams. Although the proclamation wasn't approved, Representative O'Neil decided to present a bill to establish and actual Maine Needham Day - and it passed!
Going forward, the last Saturday of September will officially be Maine Needham Day. So mark your calendars and stick around, because we plan to celebrate!
