YORK, Maine — In celebration of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, the Maine Professional Drivers Association (MPDA) will host a driver appreciation event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14, at the northbound scale facility on Interstate 95 in York.
“As a way to recognize the hard work and sacrifice our nation’s drivers have willingly endured, away from their families, during this past year to keep essential goods and materials moving, we will be providing a free bagged-lunch style meal,” said Joshua White, publicity officer for MPDA.
In keeping with social-distancing and health guidelines, MPDA volunteers will staff a drive-thru line and hand pre-bagged lunches to drivers as they pass through. All volunteers will follow recommended sanitary practices, including wearing masks and gloves.
During the event, there will be no inspections conducted at the scale facility.
“All drivers and their families are welcome to come. We can’t wait to see you!” White said.
