Looking Forward to 2018 Annual Events

Here in the great Maine Lakes Region near Sebago Lake, all of us at Maine Real Estate Choice take great pride in demonstrating to you the value that exists right here, and in our surrounding areas. There are few places on earth, in less than a one hour drive, you can be enjoying the ocean and world-class beaches, and also Mountain experiences that rival any on the planet. For those of us blessed to live and work everyday here in the area, sometimes it is easy to forget how important a destination we are for those “from away” who choose a day-to-day that is very urban, and yet we are only a couple of hours from Boston 118 miles to be exact – to reach the lake – and 320 Miles to the heart of Manhattan. In this day and age of easy planes, trains, and automobiles having a second true home ‘away’ is an important part of many people’s lives.

Due to the delightfully improving weather now this spring, we want to remind you of a few of the many annual events available to enjoy each year, just a few of the reasons why our Maine Lakes Region is such a desirable place to hang your hat!

Looking Forward To Spring 2018

The numbers are in, and very thankfully for those who participated in this year’s Shaw’s Polar Dip which is part of the annual Maine Sebago Lake Ice Fishing Derby and festivities. Fundraising efforts are appreciated from those who plunged into the open hole cut in the ice into the icy waters this year reaching the $15,000+ mark raised for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program. Shaw’s grocery stores raised $31,000 additional in their stores for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program, all funds staying local, bringing this year’s total donation to more than $45,000 thanks to the Shaw’s efforts, and the Polar Dip fundraising. Many thanks to those who donated both in the stores and via raising funds for the icy plunge, this late winter season 2018.

Coming right up in a couple of weekends, it is that time of Year again, and a true sign of Spring despite the snow predicted in our regional forecasts. We can look forward to a great couple of events always fun to take the family to: both Maine Maple Sunday and the annual Portland Flower show are fast approaching.

Here’s a link to the all of the listed Maine Maple producers in the association, and I expect you too may be amazed as to the depth of this list!
