16 November 2013: Benefit Supper for Rusty Althenn

Benefit Poster

I received the following email (and the above poster) from Stan York today.

Hi George,

I wanted to ask if it might be possible to have the Clary Lake Association help us get the word out about a benefit dinner being held for one of our camp owners. Rusty Althenn, who’s wife Patty I believe is a member (they own the camp to the right of ours on the lake), has had some medical issues lately that resulted in the loss of kidney function and regular dialysis treatments. The community here in Palermo and South China where we live is responding with a Benefit Spaghetti Supper to be held at Erskine Academy in South China this Saturday from 5-7pm. We are also having a Silent Auction and a 50/50 Raffle. We are hoping to raise money to help them with medical bills, as he has spent the last few weeks in and out of the hospital in Portland (and now traveling regularly to Augusta/Waterville for dialysis treatments).

I know that Patty and Rusty are very well known on the lake, and I am not sure how to get the word out to a lot of the people who see them regularly during the summer months. We were hoping maybe we could get the poster for the benefit on the Association website, or maybe forwarded to your group e-mail list.

Let me know your thoughts, and we appreciate anything you can do!
