LYAC Celebrates Paradis Park Dedication

On May 6, 2015, the Lewiston Youth Advisory Council participated in the dedication of Mark W Paradis Park in Lewiston (formerly Pierce Street Park). LYAC has worked with the Downtown Neighborhood Action Committee since 2011 by interviewing park users, providing input on renovation plans, and facilitated the "Name That Park" Contest. A local student, Nicole Morin, had the winning entry - MARK W PARADIS PARK in memory of the long-time public servant. At the May 6th dedication, LYAC Chair Nairus Abdullahi spoke and made a presentation to Mrs. Ronnie Paradis. LYAC also facilitated a DO YOU DO LEW t-shirt raffle to raise funds for park soccer nets/balls. History of LYAC's Involvement With Park Revitalization/Naming
