A benefit spaghetti dinner is planned at Helen's Restaurant in Ellsworth for the family of Trudy Pickard, who passed away recently following a tragic accident in Eastbrook.

Pickard, 54, was an Ellsworth High School graduate, and her husband Scott, were and are, both well known and well liked residents of the area for many years.

"She always had so much love for all friends and unknown alike. Her smile brightened the darkest of rooms. She knew no stranger, and anybody who had not had the pleasure to have her in their life truly missed out. She was an inspiration to everybody around her, in one aspect or another" it was noted in her obituary published in the Bangor Daily News.

The benefit spaghetti dinner will happen this coming Sunday, November 26th, between 5 and 7 p.m. at Helen's Restaurant in Ellsworth.  A donation of your liking is the cost, and all proceeds will benefit the family of Trudy Pickard.
