AUBURN — This year’s Auburn’s Winter Fest will take place Friday through Sunday, Jan. 26 to 28. The United New Auburn Association has been asked to plan an event for Sunday, Jan. 28.

In cooperation with the Auburn Recreation Department and Sherwood Heights School, UNAA is planning a sledding/skating party, weather permitting, for all ages on the hills at Sherwood Heights from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will transform the former tennis courts into an ice rink for skating only and the hills will be plowed for sledding.

There will be hot chocolate, cookies and a warming fire pit at the site.

Knowing that many attendees may not have adequate winter wear, the association is asking for donations of warm winter hats and mittens. Donations may be delivered to Rolly’s Diner and 4 Season Farm Market. They may add other drop-off locations in New Auburn if demand is high.

Donations of any type will be welcome: sleds, flying saucers, ice skates in usable condition.

For more information, call Ken Blais at Rolly’s Diner, 207-753-0171; Kathy Shaw at 4 Season Farm Market, 207-212-0802; or City Councilor Leroy Walker at 207-577-2694.
