BUCKFIELD, Maine (AP) — Sen. Susan Collins is planning a visit to the Maine company that supplies wooden keepsake Easter eggs that are featured at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

Wells Wood Turning & Finishing Inc., a wood products company in the central Maine town of Buckfield, is manufacturing the eggs for the seventh straight year.

The eggs will be included in gift bags that are 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 or a five-pack that includes one egg of each color plus a special edition egg.

Collins says she'll meet with employees when she visits the company on Monday.
