On April 16 Derry resident Mike DeMeo suffered a massive stroke, leaving him unable to move his left arm and with limited use of his left leg. He has been overwhelmed with medical costs; his insurance is no longer paying for continued therapy. His friends are planning a fundraiser for him at the Derry-Salem Elks Lodge, 9 Shadow Lake Road, Salem on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 4 to 10 p.m., with tickets costing $20. A silent auction, raffles, food and bar and music are planned. For details, call Cheryl at 617-240-1154 or visit www.demeostrong.com.
