A lasagna dinner from 1 to 4 p.m. today on the Books to be Red lawn will benefit islander Megan Aldridge, who is battling non-small cell adenocarcinoma lung cancer.

Donations to help Megan and her family with medical expenses can be sent to the Ocracoke United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 278, Ocracoke, NC 27960. In the memo line on check write “for Megan Aldridge.”
