The Maine Professional Drivers Association is scheduled to hold an appreciation event for truck drivers from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 13.

This event, which kicks off National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, will be held at the northbound scale facility on Interstate 95 in York.

As a way to recognize the hard work and sacrifice the nation’s drivers have willingly endured, away from their families, during this past year to keep essential goods and materials moving, the association will have volunteers grilling up hamburgers and hot dogs. Ice cream and bottled water also will be provided by some of its supporting member companies.

There will be no inspections performed at the site during this event.

The Maine State Police provided the use of its scale facility.

All drivers and their families are welcome to come.
