AUGUSTA – Gov. John Baldacci recently joined the Maine Health Care Association in honoring the accomplishments of 44 people living in the state’s long-term care facilities. The association presented certificates of lifetime achievement during a ceremony in the Hall of Flags at the State House.

The ceremony was part of photo exhibit, “Remember ME,” and featured the black and white photographs and biographies of the residents living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

The primary purpose of the Remember ME project is to salute the people who have spend the best years of their lives supporting their families, building their communities and serving their state and country. The project also urges the public to remember the selfless contributions of elderly and disabled citizens who now depend on others for their care and safety.

The exhibit included the photos and biographies of residents from Madawaska to York, Eastport to South Paris. The residents were decorated war heroes and community leaders such as police chiefs, teachers, doctors and small business owners.
