LAE Learners featured in Museum L-A's latest exhibit! [Lewiston Adult Education]

Come see Museum L-A's new exhibit, "Rivers of Immigration: Peoples of the Androscoggin," exploring the flow of diversity in Lewiston-Auburn.

Generations ago, people from Ireland, Canada, Greece, Lithuania, Italy and many other lands were the new people in town. Different languages and cultures set them apart. Over time, their assimilation into the community became the community. New immigrants are now calling Lewiston-Auburn home.

HEAR the stories and SEE the faces of the people who have joined our community. FOLLOW a Timeline that traces the flow of diversity in L-A. ADD your own story to the Interactive Writing Wall. 

Many students from the Lewiston Adult Learning Center are involved and have shared their stories to help make this exhibit possible!

For additional information, see the write up on Lewiston Adult Education’s Facebook Page or contact Museum L-A at 207-333-3881 or http://www.museumla.org
