Ellis Saucier of Auburn works in her garden Monday morning at her home of 17 years. Saucier was born down the street from her current home, moved away, and then returned because she missed her house’s proximity to Lake Auburn and the tight-knit community. Saucier appreciates that her neighbors all look out for each other and will always extend a helping hand. As of 7:30 a.m. Monday, Saucier had already watered her backyard and went to fill the bird bath so the birds can cool off as the temperature rose higher in the afternoon. Anna Gouveia/Sun Journal
