Rob Wilpan, chairman of the Sorrento Board of Selectmen, moved to Sorrento with his wife, Janet, in 1988. Hailing from Long Island, N.Y., they wanted to live in “a cleaner, less crowded area,” Rob recalled.
Maine was the desired destination. Rob “was into bike riding while growing up on Long Island,” and he would bicycle to New Hampshire in the summer and camp along the way. “I had a pin on the map on Acadia National Park,” he said, intending to bike to Mount Desert Island one day.
