"The people of Lewiston are our fans and our family. They are an important fabric of our community. We look forward to celebrating with them on Dec.16."

For the game, the Maine Celtics will wear special Lewiston uniforms, featuring the Lewiston High School colors and "04240" Lewiston zip code. The night will also include recognition of local survivors and members of the community who are helping uplift the area in their time of need.
