Legislature to honor Sweetser’s service


AUGUSTA – The Maine House of Representatives will honor the late Dennis Sweetser with a sentiment at the start of its Wednesday session.

According to Sweetser’s family, he is believed to be the first person from a Little League Baseball program honored in this manner. Sweetser served Auburn Suburban Little League for 50 years as a coach, board member, commissioner and historian. Sweetser, also a longtime science teacher at Edward Little High School, died in June 2009.

Rep. Mike Beaulieu, R-Auburn, will make the presentation.
