BANGOR, Maine — The local Knights of Columbus will hold a spaghetti dinner and silent auction with musical performances Saturday, Dec. 4, to benefit the family of Tim Higgins, who recently fell from a ladder and suffered debilitating injuries that will keep him out of work for months.
Higgins’ ankle was so badly damaged in the fall that doctors had to remove part of the ankle bone. Specialists from Bangor, Portland and Boston have said that “rebuilding the ankle will be a long, tedious process, if it can be done at all,” according to Keith Forbes of the Knights of Columbus. At some point, Higgins also will re-quire surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff from the fall.
Higgins’ wife, Marsha, “has been working part time, but he and their family of four active children can use our help,” Forbes said.
The benefit event for Higgins and his family will be held 5-7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, at the All Saints Catholic School, St. Mary’s School Cafeteria, 768 Ohio St. The Knights are planning a spaghetti supper, live music, a silent auction and a dessert auction for the evening. Admission is by monetary donation.
In addition, anyone who wants to donate to the silent auction or the dessert auction is urged to call Forbes at 735-4131.
