To The Editor:

Recently, this community came out in force with support and love for a beloved neighbor, Mary Parker, and her family.

Mary has been battling ovarian cancer bravely for almost three years. Although she has the benefit of health insurance, there are other tremendous costs involved. At this time, she is traveling as far as Bethesda, Md., for treatment.

The event on Sept.19 was a public supper and silent auction held at Saint Saviour’s Church in Bar Harbor. The outpouring of support was truly extraordinary. The list of businesses and individuals that donated time, food, funds and silent auction items is in the hundreds.

The friends and family of Mary and David, in Mary’s words, “Would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.”
