LEWISTON — Dollard (Del) and Priscilla Gendron have presented the second installment of their $100,000 pledge toward the new Museum L-A, a check for $50,000, to Executive Director Rachel Desgrosseilliers.

Del Gendron said, “We feel that Museum L-A is very important for our community. My family is fortunate to have the financial ability to make contributions like this one to Museum L-A because of our hard work and dedication over many years. We do this because we believe in giving back to our communities and we hope to inspire others to make a difference by investing in their communities, too.”

The Gendrons are a prominent local family whose business has been a significant part of the community as contractors, real estate developers, convenience store/gas stations owners and more.

Desgrosseilliers said, “The Gendron family has been a major supporter of Museum L-A for many years. It is because of their generosity, along with the contributions of many other individuals and businesses, that Museum L-A has become a destination that serves as an experience of community and tourism in Lewiston-Auburn. We are honored that they choose to support us and want to encourage others to give back to their community.”

Museum L-A is located in the Bates Mill Complex, 35 Canal St. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Special tour requests and large group tours outside of those hours are available by appointment.
