“A spaghetti supper will be held April 29 from 6-8 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Hall in Easton. Cost is $5 donation per person, with a silent auction and 50/50 drawing to follow,” said Kristina Lento, a family friend.

Cheyanne Day, the 6-year-old daughter of David and Denise Day, of Easton, has suffered from kidney disease most of her life, according to Lento.

“Cheyanne is currently fighting a serious kidney infection and has had kidney failure. She’s been struggling with this most of her life and will be traveling to Boston soon for surgery. Her father, David, is an employee of McCain’s. Her mother, Denise, is a local Girl Scout leader. Cheyanne also has a little brother, Dakota,” said Lento.

The meal includes spaghetti with meat sauce, salad, dinner rolls, coffee and soft drinks, plus dessert. Some silent auction items include cases of McCain French fries, a handmade quilt, Zumba classes, a tanning session and much more. Donations will be gratefully accepted.

“Donations can also be sent directly to the family at: 33 Station Rd., Easton, ME 04740, or dropped off at Katahdin Trust Company in Easton,” said Lento.
