Maine CDC Director Shah Impressed With Scenic Milbridge
We've always known that some of the most impressive coastline vistas in the United States reside in downeast Maine.
Yes, you know it's true. Stand on the historic Shore Path along Bar Harbor's waterfront some peaceful Sunday morning and admire the islands scattered within Mount Desert Narrows, or, pull over and into the scenic turnout off Route 1 in Sullivan some sunny day to take in the view of Cadillac Mountain from across Frenchman Bay. You just can't beat it.
So it came as no surprise that Dr. Nirav Shah, the Maine Director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, admired the view of the Narraguagus River from the Milbridge Town Boat Launch yesterday as workers set up a mobile vaccination site.
Dr. Shah told us via Twitter that the location, " wins the award for most scenic #COVID19 vaccination site in the US."
By the way, the Milbridge Days Festival is on this year and the theme is "1960's- Hippies & Flower Power", so break out the tie dyed shirts and headbands and make it a point to be there sometime between Thursday, July 29th, through Saturday, July 31st.
As a matter of fact, the Milbridge Town Boat Launch will probably be the place to be that Saturday night as a giant fireworks display will be set off over Narraguagus Bay.
