100 Years Ago: 1920

Thanksgiving Day, 1920 promises to be very happy in Lewiston and Auburn. There will be nothing spectacular about it – nothing big; nothing out of the ordinary.

The activity room of the Auburn Towne House is busy every Tuesday from 1 to 4 p.m. — the time the Sew & Tell group meets. The group makes quilts and during the past year they have made more than $800 from their quilts. The money they earn benefits the Towne House Activity Fund and enables them to purchase items for their home. This past year they bought two swings and two picnic tables with benches for the lawn, The money also allows them to have a free coffee hour monthly. Recently the group donated two of their quilts to Androscoggin Home Health Services to be raffled off.
