The Dolard & Priscilla Gendron Franco Center in Lewiston recently received a $1,000 grant from the Lewiston-Auburn Children’s Foundation. The center will use the funds for the Fun in French and Community Learning Center after-school programs, which serve more than 90 children in the Lewiston-Auburn area with language and culture classes. These classes and programs are aimed at children ages 4 to 12 with their parents, grandparents or accompanying adult and are designed to introduce, refresh and help introduce French to children and provide opportunities to continue learning at home.
