Jared Deschene takes samples and inventories materials March 22 that are needed for reconstruction of a cupola on the building at the corner of Pine and Pierce streets in Lewiston. “It’s like being on a boat,” Deschene says as the manlift sways in the gusting wind. Deschene is a carpenter for Hebert Construction, which is renovating the historic building. At right on roof is Mike Hebert, who takes notes and a sample of the slate from the roof that he believes came from Monson.

Oakland Vallieres, center, records information with his tablet computer March 21 while third grade teacher Tara Knight pulls a tap from a maple tree at Walton Elementary School in Auburn.
