The 2011 Maine Discovery Coast Magazine from the Rockland Chamber of Commerce is now available at its office at 1 Park Dr. Chamber hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
On the cover of the publication is “Owls Head Light” by award-winning graphic artist Alan Claude. The magazine features new editorial content, including these feature articles:
• “Beauty and Wonder: Jay Sawyer Sparks Sculpture from Salvaged Materials” by Joshua Bodwell with photography by Sarah Szwajkos.
• “Exploring Maine’s Wine Trail: From Vines to Wines” by the staff at Maine Food & Lifestyle magazine.
Jay Sawyer is an emerging artist whose business, Stemwinder Sculpture in Warren, is focused on creating art from salvaged materials. The wine trail story profiles the Maine Winery Guild and The Maine Wine Trail.
We also have added a quick-response barcode on the cover. This allows anyone to scan it with a smartphone or reader-equipped cellphone to link to our website, www.TheRealMaine.com wherever you are. Peter Palermo of Elm Street Printing and Graphics assisted with this technological enhancement.
The magazine contains more than 650 listings of Chamber member businesses, ranging from tourism and hospitality members to business services, including contractors, graphic designers, insurance providers, employment agencies, computer services, financial institutions, dentists, human services and more. It contains information on recreational activities, cultural attractions, shopping, accommodations, dining, calendar of events and more.
If you are a resident, business or visitor, our magazine is a valuable resource for many of your needs throughout the year, so be sure to pick up a copy. For those of you who have guests coming to visit, we can mail them a copy of the magazine in advance of their trip, so please call us.
