DEAR SUN SPOTS: Can you please find me an address and/or phone number for Great Falls TV? They used to be listed in the phone books but not anymore.

I really miss it, and I wish it would return. — Donald Corriveau, Lewiston
ANSWER: You can find them at www.greatfallstv.net, write to 1250 Turner St., Auburn, ME 04210 or call 755-5424.
You can find out more about the showcase at http://www.classicartsshowcase.org. According to that site, the show is still available on channels 9 and 22.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: The Holy Savior School would like to extend sincere appreciation to all the wonderful supporters, auction patrons, contributors and parishioners who participated in the April 8 auction in Rumford.
A special thank-you to “auctioneer” Mark Prevost for his professionalism and humor; he always makes the night with his quick wit. An enormous thank-you goes to Cindy and Scott Grassette at 49 Franklin for serving our every need. Their customer service was above and beyond.
The auction was a great success because of everyone involved. We could not have done it without the cooperation and attendance of all those who participated.
If you missed this event, you missed a lot. It was a wonderful feeling to look around the crowded hall and see such support for our local parish and Catholic school. The committee commented on how the parishioners, friends, staff and community came together to support this wonderful gem, Holy Savior School.
Thank you all for your commitment to Catholic education. Hope to see everyone again next year. — Auction Committee, Holy Savior School, Rumford
