Maine Coast Welcome Center Greets 6000th Guest

Posted Sept. 27, 2010, at 12:13 p.m.

The Maine Coast Welcome Center is seeing continued strong tourist traffic during this fall season. This week the 6000th guest signed our guest register !

Denny & Penny Russell of North Carolina became the 6000th guests to sign our register on Wednesday, Sept. 22. The Russell’s are visiting Maine on a fall vacation and needed a place to stay, a place to eat, and things to do while on the Maine coast, so they stopped in at the Maine Coast Welcome Center and were assisted by our top travel advisor, Carol Williams. Our 6000th guests were awarded a place to stay, a place to eat, and a thing to do!

Carol made reservations for the Russell’s at one of our local Belfast partners, the Colonial Gables Oceanfront Village, and provided gift certificates toward dinner at Papa J’s & the Lobster Bar Restaurant, and shopping at Mainely Pottery.

Carol says: “We knew we were about to hit the 6000th mark soon, so the anticipation was almost too much! Patti & I spent the day wondering who would be the lucky person. When the Russell’s arrived, the expression on their faces was priceless!”

The Maine Coast Welcome Center partners with local businesses to promote tourism on the Maine coast from Freeport to Eastport.

Here’s what our “6000th” Business Partners have to say:

“It has been a pleasure working with the folks at the Maine Coast Welcome Center this year. They have done a great job of promoting our Restaurant and Campground. We look forward to many more seasons of partnering with them.”

Jim & Ekco Baker of Papa J’s & the Lobster Bar Restaurant & Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort

“Great job helping people find out what’s so special about our Belfast area. Congratulations Carol, Jim & Patti!”

Jamie & Jeannette, Your neighbors at Mainely Pottery

“Thanks for sending us these nice guests. With the Maine Coast Welcome Centers referals, we’re up sigificantly over last year!”

Ed Morin, Colonial Gable Oceanside Village
