About The Heroes Wall and Our Sponsors

Heroes Wall

The Heroes Wall is a memorial like no other, it is a granite wall consisting of etched tiles with photos and messages to honor the Veterans of this great nation. Governor Baldacci, has stated that, "This is a special project, a wonderful tribute from the people of this area, recognizing the patriotism and sacrifices made by our veterans".

The wall provides a way to honor our Veterans 365 days a year, not just for one. A notion that is very true during the state of war our country is in. We must remember and support our troops during these tough times, not just for one day, but every day.

The Heroes Wall will be an on-going project and can be visited at DiMillo's Long Wharf on Commercial Street in Portland and in Columbia Falls at Wreaths Across America’s balsam tip land. If you are interested in honoring the special Veteran in your life you may place an order here online or by calling toll free 1-877-838-2433.

Easter Seals

At Easter Seals Maine, we believe that any veteran who has served our country shouldn't ever be without life's most basic necessities. Located in Portland, Maine, Easter Seals Maine serves Maine's military community state-wide. The mission of Easter Seals Maine's Military and Veterans Services programs are to provide critical and timely financial assistance and services when no other resource is available to veterans, service members and their families, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being.

Supported financially by the Veterans Count Maine board, Easter Seals Maine's Military and Veteran Services helps avert homelessness, remove barriers to employment, helps to navigate the military benefits system, provides mental health services and counseling, and makes sure no veteran in their care is hungry. Easter Seals Maine serves the entire military family. All services are free, confidential and care coordinators can come to the veteran wherever they reside.

DiMillo's

Our restaurant is a converted car ferry that originally ran between New Castel, Delaware, and Pennsville, New Jersey. Later it ran between Newport and Jamestown, Rhode Island. In 1980, it was sold to our family and converted into a floating restaurant, one of the largest in America.

The restaurant rises and falls with the tide twice a day, and because it's surrounded by water, every table offers spectacular views from our dining rooms, function rooms, and outside decks.

Our outside decks are great spots to watch the sights and sounds of Portland harbor while enjoying a meal or cocktail. When you're visiting Portland, be sure to stop at DiMillo's on Long Wharf and experience the romance of Maine's waterfront. The Long Wharf Promenade, on the west side of Long Wharf, servers as the gateway to DiMillo's Old Port Yachting Center, DiMillo's Gift Shop, and DiMillo's Floating Restaurant, one of the most famous restaurants on the East Coast!

United Insurance

United Insurance is a statewide organization of independent insurance professionals who have combined their resources to provide comprehensive business and personal insurance.

Increasing numbers of Maine business professionals and private individuals - from loggers to lobstermen, bankers to builders, manufacturers to municipalities - are taking advantage of services offered by United Insurance

Founded in August of 1976, United Insurance has become one of the largest independent agencies in Maine. Its origin in 36 locations has been consolidated into a network of key locations from Portland to Fort Kent. In its knowledge of Maine and its insurance needs, United Insurance is, we believe, unsurpassed. United Insurance's strength stems, in part, from its deep community roots. One United Insurance agency, for example, has over 130 years of service to local businesses and residents. Close community ties enable member agents to provide precisely tailored coverage for their clients and immediate claims service whenever it is required.

In a state that covers over 33,000 square miles and comprises an area nearly equal to all other New England states combined, a network that provides for the linking of both experience and expertise is invaluable. United Insurance provides that invaluable asset to its members.

And those members pass United Insurance's benefits along to the diverse commercial and personal insurance relationships they maintain throughout the state of Maine.

We are here to provide you with someone who will take the time to understand the needs of your family and/or your business and match the proper coverage to those needs. Part of understanding those needs is also recommending coverage in areas you may not have identified as a potential risk.

Once we understand your needs we will use every resource to secure the proper coverage at the most competitive prices available. We only represent companies we feel offer top notch service and claims handling.

Whether you need to make a policy change, have a question about billing or need to report a claim our customer service representatives are the best in business and will handle your request professionally and quickly. Our web site is also available 24/7 to accommodate your busy schedule.

No matter what your insurance need or question we invite you to experience an exceptional level of customer service.
