Auburn’s Fall Festival took place last weekend under threatening skies that only provided a sprinkle of rain. According to Recreation and Culture Director Kristen Pappas, there was a steady flow of attendees all day and the vendors were generally pleased with the event. Music on Saturday afternoon was provided by “Throwback to the 60s” with AHS alumnus Sue Gillies on drums.
Darlene Coyle, Acting Director of the Department of Development & Inspectional Services, said nearly 150 people attended the community Flu Clinic. Coyle said the town’s allotment of vaccines has nearly been depleted with the two recent clinics. It’s good that people are taking the flu risk seriously.
This is the second year that the festival has been held at the high school rather than Lemansky Park, and the added draw of Homecoming games and the clinic keep a lot of people moving through the campus. Hopefully, Auburn’s Fall Festival will continue to grow during this very busy time of year.
