Friends and family are rallying around Orrington Fire Chief Mike Spencer on Sunday. He was seriously hurt in a fall at his home and has a long recovery ahead. Now the community is coming together in support of Mike and his family with a spaghetti dinner and more!

Mike fell from a ladder while working on a project at home on September 4th. The fall caused several broken ribs, a broken scapula, blown ear drum, and many more injuries. He's out of the hospital now, after a five day stay, but he's still recovering. And he's still out of work.

So Mike's family and friends are showing their support with a spaghetti dinner on Sunday, October 21st from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Center Drive School in Orrington. The menu will include spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, dessert and beverages. They're also working on a silent auction and raffle for the evening.

I worked in Orrington for years, and now I call it home. I've met Chief Spencer many times and I know his family. This is a man who's dedicated to his community and to his family.  Now it's time to come together and help him. For more information, check out the event page on Facebook or call his son Greg at 974-9791. I hope to see you there!

Get better soon, Chief!
