Tim Sample to Perform at Benefit

By Amy Jeanroy

Local Maine Humorist Tim Sample will perform January 14th  at First Congregational Church in Calais, to benefit the Slater & Slater Fire Fund. 

The Slater & Slater Garage on Union Street in Calais suffered extensive damage on November 18th when a vehicle that was being repaired caught fire, quickly spreading through the garage and doing extensive damage to the building. The fire destroyed a large part of the building,  the hydraulic lift and much of the automotive equipment. 

Slater & Slater has temporarily closed it's doors until repairs can be made. Although insured, the insurance will only pay for the repair of the building, leaving thousands of dollars in necessary tools and equipment needed before the business can reopen. 

Friends and family have also created a GoFundMe account for anyone who would like to donate to the reopening of this important local business. To find out more, please visit: https://www.gofundme.com/slaterfire
