Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Safe travel if you're hitting the road this weekend. 930,000 vehicles will travel the turnpike between Friday and Monday.
The Busiest Times:
Friday: between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM northbound.
Monday: the York Toll Plaza southbound will have 55,000 departing Maine, with the heaviest times between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM...
Monday's Memorial Day parade will begin in Longfellow Square and end with a ceremony on Monument Square at the feet of "Our Lady of Victories", the monument that inspired the name of the square. I see her every day from the WBLM studio windows, but I know nothing about her...
This Memorial Day weekend, the grills get fired up in full force for the unofficial kickoff to summer in Maine. Burgers, hot dogs, sausage, you name it. They'll all be over the fire. So to get ready for the big weekend, I asked Q Morning Show fans on Facebook to share their favorite recipes for the grill with us.
Some time between Thursday night and Friday morning, vandals came to Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Etna, Maine and dug up a family plot. They even reached one of the cement vault boxes surrounding a casket. You could see where they tried to pry it open!
The servicemen and women of our country make huge sacrifices to fight battles on our behalf and keep the freedoms we hold dear. One of those sacrifices is being away from their families and loved ones for long periods of time.
