Marcel Gagne, back wall right, proposes a toast during the unveiling of a timeline that marks the 25th anniversary of the University of Southern Maine's Lewiston-Auburn College in Lewiston on Thursday. Guests, including faculty, former mayors of Lewiston and Auburn, local dignitaries and students from the first graduating class, attended the unveiling and the founder's reception that followed. Trying to compress 25 years into two panels was a challenge, said Dan Philbrick, director of communications for the college. Gagne is chairman of the L-A College Community Advisory Board.
