Company’s Easter eggs will roll at the White House

Senator Susan Collins is planning to visit the Maine company that supplies wooden keepsake Easter eggs featured at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. Wells Wood Turning & Finishing Inc., in the central Maine town of Buckfield, is manufacturing the eggs for the seventh straight year. The eggs will be included in gift bags given to children at the April 1 Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn. The National Park Service also sells the eggs as collectibles for $7.99 each. Collins said she will meet with employees when she visits the company on Monday.
