AUBURN – Members of the Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Breakfast Club heard Lewiston Assistant City Manager Greg Mitchell discuss the city’s downtown revitalization progress to date as well as plans to develop the Western Gateway.

Saying that the Lewiston-Auburn community had seen its greatest development in 50 years, Mitchell pointed to plans for a new downtown connector from the Maine Turnpike and a regional convention center as projects on the horizon.

Of particular interest to the group is a plan for a museum consortium as part of the convention center development. Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Breakfast Club’s Centennial Project is to help with the development of Museum L-A, which is part of the consortium.

The club provides more than $20,000 a year in grants to local and international charities, with funds raised through the Trip-of-the-Month raffle, annual golf tournament in June and the Great Duck Race in August.

For more information about the club or its work in the community, those interested can contact President Sherwood Moody at 786-5700.
