    On Thursday, Aug. 27, at 6 p.m., the Camden Public Library welcomes Shanna Cox for an online presentation about the Lewiston Auburn Community (L/A). This program is part of the library’s Maine “Staycation” travel series.

    The program will be hosted on the Zoom platform. Email to request a Zoom link to attend.

    Situated on the Androscoggin River, L/A has a rich history as a mill community and is well known for its deep-rooted French Canadian heritage, according to the Library, in a news release. The area is also undergoing transformation and a burgeoning renaissance with the influences of new immigrants, new businesses, and a growing arts and restaurant scene. From roller derby to balloon rides to museums and theatre, the L/A region boasts an abundance of recreational, cultural, and entertainment options. Outdoor experiences abound with sites like the L/A Riverwalk and hiking trails at the Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary.

    This program will highlight stand-out attractions as well as the hidden gems that make this central Maine community so special.

    Shanna Cox, president and CEO of the Lewiston Auburn Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, along with representatives from the hospitality sector, work to build local prosperity and enhance the quality of life for the residents of this region.

    “The chamber envisions a diverse, vibrant economic and cultural landscape in Central Maine, with Lewiston Auburn as a hub of economic activity, innovation, ideas that influence, and actions that lead,” said the release.
