Connie helps everyone in Orono and beyond. People who move into Orono find Connie on their doorstep with a cake and a welcome. If a family in Orono has a tragedy Connie is the first to help in any way she can; food, fundraisers; etc. Every Boxing Day she prepares a big dinner to serve to anyone she knows who is alone (mainly a lot of widowers). Connie rents a hall and buys the food herself. Connie spends money on those who need help even if she doesn't have enough for herself. She gives gifts to new parents, newly weds and if she hears someone needs something she's there. Connie is a member of our Rebekah Lodge and when she hears that someone needs a cane, crutches, a wheelchair, bath stool, etc. she personally delivers the items to them or meets them at the lodge for pickup. She visits people who are ill and takes them food if appropriate. When the police set up a visiting area for Orono she brought them all coffee and doughtnuts. If there's a fire, Connie takes hot coffee and doughnuts to the firemen. Connie gives of herself to all she comes into contact with. She runs a blood donor clinic in conjunction with the Orono Masons 4 times per year.
