Boothbay Harbor, Maine (PRWEB) June 28, 2008
If you are looking for another reason to visit the Boothbay Harbor region this summer, you're in luck. The Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce announced today their "Treasured Memories" contest open to all visitors, past and present, who have traveled to the region. Visitors will have until October 31, 2008, to submit their story up to 500 words and an accompanying photograph. The top three entries will each receive a deluxe week long adventure in the Boothbay Harbor Region including free accommodations, meals, activities and even an original watercolor painting of the area.
"We are looking for the most heart-warming, exciting, or memorable experience that someone has had in their visit to the Boothbay region," says Ron Brann, Chair of the Chamber's Marketing Committee. The memory can date as far back as a long-ago recollection of a childhood adventure or to as recent as a romantic getaway just last week.
For some, a trip to the Boothbay Harbor region has become an annual pilgrimage, attracting visitors seeking the abundance of natural beauty and coastal air, as well as the freshest seafood, especially Maine lobster. The Boothbay Harbor Region also maintains a rich maritime heritage and is world renowned for the skill of its sailors, fishermen, and shipwrights.
"We've always heard from our visitors that they value the authentic, unspoiled quality of our community - like the traditional harbor with its fleet of lobster and fishing boats, the sunset vistas and hiking trails and the quaint village with its tiny shops and restaurants - and that they consider the Boothbay region the soul of the coast," continues Brann. "So now, we're asking people to share their most 'Treasured Memories' with us, for publication on our web site, enabling others to share in discovering the beauty of the Boothbay Harbor Region."
