Central Maine Has Lost a Hero

Have you ever meet one of those people that you stand back and sort of marvel at their energy and caring? Eva Grover was one of those women for me.  I met Eva years ago here at 92 Moose. One of my co-workers introduced me to Eva and her work at the Alfond Youth Center in Waterville, feeding children in the Kids Kitchen. Eva, who was a retired nurse, was volunteering at the Alfond Youth Center and the kids were hungry. She saw a need and tried to fill it by bringing in sandwich fixings. But it wasn’t enough.

Thanks to Harold and Bibby Alfond and their generosity, the Kids Kitchen grew from a few sandwiches to 40,000 in their new facility to feed kids in Waterville. After she retired from the Kids Kitchen, the mission to feed hungry kids is still strong. Eva Grover passed away September 7.

I bet there are lots of young adults in the Waterville area who remember her as the woman from the Alfond Youth Center. So, it is fitting that the Alfond Youth Center will be the location of a memorial service held by the family Eva collected over the years. It will be Thursday, September 13 at the Alfond Youth Center in Waterville, between 4pm and 7pm. If you wish, you can bring a little something for the pot luck.

Eva was an amazing woman who had a lifetime of amazing experiences. Many of those experiences were in the Waterville area helping others. The world has been a better place because of Eva Grover. We love you Eva, and we will miss you.
