AUBURN — A fire prevention program, including a coloring and poster contest, in partnership with Washburn Elementary School, was sponsored by the Lewiston-Auburn Rotary Lunch Club.

Members of the Rotary Club collected the student entries and selected the best submissions that captured the importance of adhering to fire safety procedures. Rotary members were invited by Washburn School Principal Andrew Bard and his staff to an assembly to announce the winners and award the prizes.

L-A Club President Monica Millhime was accompanied by Rotarians Lorraine Bard and Peter Arsenault to congratulate students. “Supporting literacy and adopting Washburn School, was one of our top priorities as a Rotary club this year,” said Millhime.

The winners of the coloring contest were Kaida Gatcomb, kindergarten; Angelina Tardif, grade one; and Jenna Powell, grade two. The winners of the class posters were: Miss Tufts’ grade four and Mrs. Ricard’s grade five/six. All of the winners received a gift certificate.

Rotary members meet from noon to 1 p.m. Thursdays at the Village Inn, 165 High St. FMI: 207-713-7045, [email protected], https://facebook.com/lewistonmainerotary/.
