HARRISON — Lakeside Grange #63 is hosting a Benefit Pie and Bake Sale on Saturday, May 28 from 8 a.m. to noon. All proceeds will go to the family of Cody Everett, who is currently battling leukemia at Maine Medical Center. Cody was diagnosed in September 2010 and has been in and out of the Barbara Bush Children’s Center numerous times since his diagnosis. He is currently at Maine Medical Center, where he has been for the past three weeks. He was in a coma for 15 days and had to have a breathing tube put in. He is no longer in a coma, but still has a very long road ahead of him. His loving parents, Bruce Everett and Rebecca Lewis, are trying to hold it all together between working, being there for Cody and also spending time with his sister Caitlyn who is 10 years old. All the traveling to Portland and time missed from work has put a strain on their financial situation and the Grange would like to help with these expenses.
Please open your hearts and help this family by supporting this event. Pies will be sold for $10 each and other bake sale items will also be available. If you cannot make the sale, but would still like to help, you can mail a check to Lakeside Grange, c/o Opal Gardner, 354 Maple Ridge Road, Harrison, ME 04040 and put “Cody Everett” in the memo of your check. You will be mailed a receipt for your donation. Let’s show this family the “Friendly Village” cares. Lakeside Grange #63 is located next to the Village Tie-up in Harrison.
