Beat The Burn With Newly Installed Sunscreen Dispensers In Old Orchard Beach
When the temperatures warm up, people from across Maine and beyond flock to Old Orchard Beach to soak up the sun and listen to the crashing of the waves. But it's the sun that can be far more dangerous than most people realize and Old Orchard Beach is going to attempt to help people stay safe from its harmful rays this summer.
According to Saco Bay News, Old Orchard Beach has installed several new sunscreen dispensers around town with two goals in mind. The first goal is to remind employees and visitors around town to lather up before seeing too much sun. The dispensers will also help with the second goal which is to ensure those who don't have sunscreen on hand can always find a little dab of it around town when its needed.
Sunscreen dispensers will be found at 7 different locations around Old Orchard Beach. Visitors are likely to notice the dispensers at Palace Playland and Town Hall as the most visible. There will also be sunscreen dispensers at Public Works, the waste water facility, recreation department, chamber of commerce and the fire station. There's also plans to have a mobile sunscreen dispenser that will be in different locations around town throughout the summer.
It's a brilliant idea for a town that sees a ton of beachgoers searching the sun out. It does make you wonder though; could sunscreen dispensers become something we'd all be interested in?
