AUGUSTA — At Tuesday’s meeting of the United New Auburn Association, Sen. Ned Claxton, D-Auburn, presented an official legislative sentiment on behalf of the members of the Maine House and Senate to Rolly’s Diner, commemorating 25 years of business and community building. A legislative sentiment is a significant expression from the Maine House and Senate to acknowledge individual, civic or organizational accomplishments or other important events.

Rolly’s Diner, which is located at 87 Mill Street in Auburn, has long been a source of great food and community happenings. The United New Auburn Association meets monthly at Rolly’s Diner to support the community of New Auburn and has included local speakers from the city of Auburn, including the city planner and local law enforcement. Rolly’s Diner is a family-owned, traditional business, run over the years by Ken, Jean and Rolande Blais. Roland Blais, who is also honored in the legislative sentiment, passed away earlier this month.
