It's been a sad time for the whole OPA restaurant family in Waterville and they need your help.

You see yesterday one of their beloved employees experienced the devastating loss of his home as well as more of his belongings in a horrible house fire that effected several familes in Waterville on February 15th.

The employee, his wife, son, mother-in-law, and three of their rescue dogs were all displaced by this tragedy.

A co-worker and friend has started a GoFundMe for the OPA employee named Lucian who has been with OPA since the opening day of the restaurant in 2019.

The family has found temporary housing at a local hotel. They are asking for the publics help with any monetary donations to assist in continuing temporary housing as the family begins the process of rebuilding their lives.
