Promoting Down East Maine
Need a feel good story for a Monday? You can't do better than this!
The Downeast and Acadia Regional Tourism Group was at the AAA Travel Show at Gillette Stadium. Not only were the representatives able to network with lots of potential visitors to our area, but they had a drawing for 2 free lobsters shipped to your door.
The winner was Robert Szopa of Lowell, Massachusetts. Robert retired in 1999 from the US Air Force where he served in Desert Storm. Since then, he has been working at Lion's Camp Pride at Merry Meadow Lake in New Durham, New Hampshire as a camp counselor dedicated to kids with Type 1 Diabetes. Even better, he will be sharing the lobsters with his 90 year old mother, Betty, this Friday!
Thanks to Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound for the lobster donations, and the Downeast and Acadia Regional Tourism Group for paying the shipping!
