Sen. Susan Collins attends dedication ceremony of Anniversary Park in Auburn

City leaders, residents and business owners gathered at Anniversary Park in Auburn Saturday to hear remarks from Senator Susan Collins and celebrate the opening of the new park. Anniversary Park was formerly known as Little Androscoggin “Andy” Park, and was renamed for Auburn’s 150th anniversary last year. The redesigned park is part of a $3.5 million dollar revitalization project along with waterfront known as “New Auburn.” The construction of the St. Louis Bell Tower — now the second tallest monument in Maine — was also part of this project. At the event, Sen. Collins expressed her worries over President Trump’s health, following his positive coronavirus diagnosis. “The fact that he has been transferred to Walter Reed Hospital makes me even more concerned,” said Sen. Collins. “The First Lady was not transferred; the President was. So obviously, I wish him a full speedy recovery and a quick one as well.”According to Collins, she hasn’t been exposed to the three senators who have announced their positive tests this weekend, and she’s not experienced any symptoms or been tested herself.
