Vaccine team treated to lunch

The folks at Lee Auto Malls treated Central Maine Healthcare workers to lunch to recognize their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the Central Maine Healthcare system, Bridgton Hospital team members working at the COVID-19 vaccination clinic were given lunch prepared by Beth’s Kitchen Café on Main Street.

“Front-line hospital workers have been put under incredible stress by the pandemic,” said Lee Auto Malls Chairman Adam Lee. “We’re trying to let them know they haven’t been forgotten and how much their work is appreciated.”

Housing sought

Short- and long-term rental housing is needed for students attending courses at Bridgton’s Birthwise Midwifery School. Rooms, apartments and houses available for two-week periods, as well as properties for longer term rent beginning in April, are desired. If you or someone you know has such property for lease, call Birthwise at 647-5968 or email [email protected]

New tools for LEA

The Lakes Environmental Association Science Center laboratory recently acquired two new high tech instruments to help monitor and protect local lakes. Thanks to an anonymous donation, LEA was able to purchase a SEAL Analytical autoanalyzer, which enables continuous monitoring of levels of phosphorous and other nutrients in lake water. This will save the cost of having the state analyze samples collected by LEA. A FlowCam by Yokogawa Fluid Imaging Technologies was bought with a gift from Dorothy and Steve Gilman and will help track changes and patterns in the growth of lake algae.
