I’m honored and extremely proud to have been nominated by my esteemed peers to serve on the Maine Lobster Festival Corporation blog. This group works year-round to help promote the Maine Lobster industry to the world, and encourage visitors to enjoy five days of feasting and fun on the fabulous coast of Maine. In 2012 we brought approximately 100,000 visitors to our area while also raising thousands of dollars to give back to our community,” said Kinney in a recent interview.
