You probably heard the news story. Captain Nick Hardwick, the Administrator of the Penobscot County Jail and a reserve police officer in the Town of Southwest Harbor, died unexpectedly in early March while on a family vacation.

What a sad story especially since he was only 43 years old.

There will be a benefit for his family to help deal with all the expenses that come at a time like this.
