BANGOR — Got your COVID-19 vaccination? West Market Square Artisan Coffeehouse in downtown Bangor is giving away a free treat to those who’ve received their shot.
Cassi Parent, the baker at West Market, is making sugar cookies with sweet icing in the shapes of syringes and doctor’s scrubs.
The shop will give away one cookie to anyone who brings in their CDC vaccination card. It was an idea the manager had when people from all over town were coming in for a latte and treat after their shot.
“Folks are feeling after their second vaccine like they’ve got this real release and freedom, you know, especially to get together with folks who also have their second vaccine, and so it kinda just is loosening up and getting things a little bit back to normal. It’s great,” owner Cheryl Michaud said.
She said a purchase is not required to get a cookie, but supporting a small business is a nice thing. To look at the hours of the coffeehouse and address, you can go to the website.
