MILLINOCKET, Maine (AP) - The chairman of the Millinocket Town Council says it’s “pretty powerful” that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg chose to pay a visit to his town.

Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary on Friday in Bangor. On Saturday, they hiked some trails near Mount Katahdin and had a low-key visit with a group of residents and business leaders in Millinocket.

Chairman Michael Madore said he’s honored that they chose to visit Millinocket over all of the other places they could’ve gone in Maine. He called it a “big feather in our cap.”

Zuckerberg has been traveling the country with a goal of visiting all 50 states this year. By Sunday, they’d already left Maine and appeared in Newport, Rhode Island.
