AUBURN, Mass. – Four additional names have been chosen to be engraved on the monument at Church and Southbridge streets by the Auburn CARE Memorial Park Committee. 

This will be the first time since the park was built in 2004 that names have been added. The names to be placed on the stones are:

• Victoria McLaughlin, who was selected for her many dedicated years as president of the Auburn Little League.

• Martha Pappas, who will be honored for her generous support of Auburn youth projects and the Pappas Recreational Complex, which opened this summer.

• Richard Ringgard, who was selected for the time and dedication he gave to foster the creation of the new high school.

• George Fournier, who was suggested by many for his years of exceptional service to scouting in Auburn. Four of his scouts in Troop 101 will achieve the Eagle Scout ranking this year.

CARE, or Citizens of Auburn Remembered for Excellence, honors past and present members of the town who have given unselfishly of their time and resources to make Auburn a better place to live.

Over the past few years, no less than seven names have been suggested by the town’s residents in conjunction with the nine-member care committee, according to Dick Fuller.
