Throw your caps in the air for the Class of 2023!

Hard to believe that May is here again, and that means a whole slew of young adults moving on from college, and into the world to live out their dreams.

It will be a crazy weekend here in the area. Not only is it Graduation Day, but it is also Kentucky Derby party weekend!

If you are not able to attend either the University of Maine or Husson University ceremonies, both schools will be offering a live stream of the events. This really comes in handy if you live out of state, and have a loved one who is graduating this year.
