We were all touched deeply in our little neck of the woods when a missing young woman was found dead in her car off the Interstate in Old Town, and we were amazed and relieved that her two young children were found alive still strapped into their car seats. 

In the days following, we all wondered what we could do to help.  Here's one way.


26 year-old Liza Parker waited tables at the Riverside Cafe on Main Street in Ellsworth, and that's where a benefit spaghetti dinner and raffle will happen this Friday night, October 6th, between 6 and 8 p.m.  According to a post on the Cafe's Facebook page, the suggested donation for a really great dinner cooked there at the Riverside is $15.  Monies raised will help with expenses that her family has incurred, and also help her young children, 5 year-old Mason and 18 month-old Tiaona.

If you cannot make it to the dinner, a "Liza Parker Family Account" has been set up with Camden National Bank, and you can donate at any branch.
