“Bowling for Ben”
Woodland Spednic Club
The Spednic Club here in Woodland is hosting a first responders only bowling tournament to raise money for the family of Maine State Police Detective, Ben Campbell.
Our spouses stand with us every day so they are included in this event as well. Send me a private message if you want to bowl. If your spouse does please include their name as well.
We have room for 10 teams of 6 people so submit your names as soon as you can. The teams will be done by blind draw so we have a chance to have some fun with other agencies. Those single first responders will go into the draw as well.
After the tournament there will be a public spaghetti dinner and auction. All of the money raised will go to Det. Campbell’s family. Times will be added as we finalize all the arrangements.
The goal is to raise at least $1282, Det. Campbell’s call sign.
Please contact Bob Fitzsimmons for donations or questions at 427-6203.
Many thanks to the Spednic Club Board and members for hosting this event. ... See MoreSee Less

I had another one of those beautiful moments yesterday after Det. Campbell’s funeral. When we were all dismissed Officer John Preston and I were walking back towards the lot where our buses were going to pick us up. It was cold and truthfully; we were just looking for a place to get warm. We went into a little bistro attached to a Courtyard Marriott on Commercial St in Portland.
A woman walked over to me and asked if she could help me. I told her I was just there to warm up for a minute. She asked if I wanted a coffee and I told her that would be great. I followed her to the counter and while she was making my coffee, she told me she had watched the funeral on the TV. She said she felt like she just had to watch it. I got the feeling she felt she owed it to the trooper and his family to watch the tribute to his life.
I tried to pay for the coffee and she would have none of that. She then told me to help myself to some food and she pointed to a counter that was lined with at least 50 pizzas and 3 or 4 of those 8’ sandwiches. She had bought them and set those out for folks that might stop in after the service.
There were Troopers in the bistro from Maine, Vermont and other states that came to honor Det. Campbell. Officers from Pleasant Point and other municipal agencies, US Customs and Border Protection along with Border Patrol were also there. None of us had a clue that the food was there for us but many just seemed to gather there instead of rushing to the bus. I think we were all rather amazed that this person had gone out of her way to make us feel at home and offer us the comfort of food, drink and reflection with our brothers and sisters.
The woman came back to me and said, “You’re from Calais, aren’t you?” I told her I was and she said there is somebody over here I want you to meet. There was another young lady behind the counter with a huge beautiful smile. She told me her name was Lara Marshall from Calais. I didn’t know her but it was nice to see a hometown girl there helping to take care of us. If you know Lara please tag her in this post.
During a time where we were all trying to make sense of the unfathomable, we had people we never met offering us comfort, just because she felt she needed to. It was appreciated more than she can ever know.
Please feel free to share this because these are the moments that bring us all together. ... See MoreSee Less

Today Detective Benjamin Campbell would have been 32. Heading to work for the day then coming home for a dinner in or out, having some family time. But instead of gathering for a celebration, his family is gathering to mourn, a day they hoped would never come. His law enforcement extended family is beginning to travel downstate to gather to honor him and his family and remember. To try to step up in a small way to show them that they are not alone in their grief. Officers are working their shifts today and preparing their cruisers for tomorrow. And it is snowing. Each flake reminds them of the conditions that happened last week, but they are pushing those feelings to the side and continuing to be the best men and women we can ask for. Officers who don't hesitate to respond when help is needed regardless of the circumstances. Today they work as a tribute to Detective Campbell and his family, for their sacrifice. Tonight they will sing Happy Birthday and brush away tears. Tomorrow they will stand shoulder to shoulder to show solidarity with his family and with each other. Pray for them. For their safety today. For comfort for their hearts. For peace for their minds. Pray for his family. It has been shattered, making today one of the hardest days they will face. And for Ben, Happy Birthday. We miss you. We miss your smile. We will never forget. 🖤💙🖤 ... See MoreSee Less
