This Place Matters!

Monday, June 15th, 2009

That’s the mantra of Main Street!  In Rockland, it’s our beautiful and artfully restored Strand Theater.  This photo was taken on Friday, June 5th at the closing of the Maine Downtown Center Annual Conference.  Do you recognize that handsome fella down in front?

Our downtown matters!  Rockland’s downtown is vibrant and alive.  Anchored by the Farnsworth Museum and The Strand, Main Street is home to award winning restaurants and chefs, a useful variety of local shops; and an enjoyable array of galleries from reclaimed to fine art.

If you have not been to Rockland, it’s worth the trip.  If you haven’t been recently, it’s worth the trip back.  From rotating exhibits in the museum and galleries to the every changing storefront windows, there’s always something new to discover.

From Boston, we’re just 30 minutes North by Cape Air at Logan Airport.  Round trip tickets can be purchased for as little as $150.  Train enthusiasts can take a two-hour excursion from Brunswick and enjoy one of the most scenic rail trails in North America.  Of course, nothing could be finer than sailing up the Maine coast into beautiful Penobscot Bay and being greeted in Rockland Harbor by the Breakwater Lighthouse.

Call us for reservations and availability!

Frank on TV….again!

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Today, Frank went down to Portland to do a cooking segment taping for the WCSH6 show “207″. It’s a daily news magazine that focuses on all things Maine. Frank has been on before demonstrating how to make gingerbread houses and was invited down again to demonstrate how to make his Key LimeRock Pie. The segment will also help promote this years Pies on Parade event that takes place on the 25th.

On on interesting side note, while Frank was on the way down to Portland, he got a call from the local NBC news reporter for some quotes on the Cruise Ship industry here in Rockland. Frank is the chamber cruise committee chairman and he was featured in a story on this evening’s news. Since Frank was already in the Portland news station, they just interviewed him there. Leave it to Frank!

We won an award!

Last night was the monthy business after hours for the Penobscot Regional Chamber of Commerce. It’s a chance for chamber members to get together to network and catch up with each other. This month it was hosted jointly by Kno-Wal Lin and Penquis CAP. Penquis CAP is the local community action program that assists people in need through all types of programs including fuel assistance, victim service, health & housing. Last year, Frank and I (mostly Frank) helped organize a fundraiser for the Keep ME Warm fuel assistance fund. Well, last night we were presented with the Above & Beyond Award from Penquis CAP for our efforts. We had no idea this was happening and we were very honored to receive it.
