Dear Sun Spots: I missed Sun Spots the day you published the class reunion for Lewiston High School. It seems I’m not the only one who didn’t see it. The person that told me it was in the paper was not a ’43 graduate so she didn’t pay attention to the date and place. Is it possible to publish it again? – Anita N., Minot.

A date and place was not provided by M.T.A. of Lewiston. Here is what ran in the April 1, 2003, column:

Calling Lewiston High School Class of 1943. Where are you all? We have reached some of you, but not all. We hope to have a luncheon to celebrate the Big 6 0. If you wish to join us, please call Louise at (207) 782-7145 or Marie at (207) 782-4795. – M.T.A., Lewiston.

Dear Sun Spots: Would anyone know where the Trout Book Farm was located in Livermore? From what I can figure out, it probably was somewhere in the Livermore Center or Talla Walla area, years ago. Any information would be appreciated. You can write to me at 70 Crash Road, Livermore, ME 04253. – Linda H. Lymna, Livermore.

Dear Sun Spots: I am looking for a store in Lewiston or Portland which sells furniture slipcovers for chairs. Could you possibly put a rush on it? I have ordered another one that is only a throw and will be sending it back if you can find a better one. Thank you. – No Name, No Town.

In addition to responses from readers, you may want to check your local J.C.Penney store. As of a couple of weeks ago they began carrying slipcovers for dining room chairs. Their catalog features slipcovers for chairs and a sales assistant recommends you also try the South Portland store at (207) 775-3911.

If anyone has any stories or photos or knowledge to share about this, please contact me, Melanie Farmer, at 346 Varnum Pond Road, Temple, ME 04984 or via e-mail at [email protected] I need to put it all together for the Temple bicentennial celebration this fall. Many thanks. – Melanie Farmer, Temple.
