Community Conversations Continue to Unite Residents

In the winter of 2009, in the community room at the Auburn Public Library, residents of Somali, Franco-American, Irish, Yemeni and German descent traded stories of their families’ immigration to America, insights into their respective religions, and their hopes for Lewiston/ Auburn.

As one resident shared, “We all have a stake in the future progress of L/A. I was hopeful that I saw [at the conversation] different age ranges, cultures and representatives from law enforcement. I gained an insight and appreciation of how others see a scenario from different perspectives.”
