Dear Sun Spots: The Poland Historical Society is seeking photographs from Poland’s Community Day held Sept. 11. Anyone with photos we can scan and return, or with photos they would like to donate to us is invited to call Mary at (207) 998-4391 or Sandy at (207) 998-2403.

We are also seeking items and photos for our collection that have a connection to the history of the town of Poland.

Anyone with such items which they would like to donate are invited to call. Thank you. – Sandra Dunlap, Poland.

Dear Sun Spots: A new nonprofit organization will open to the public today.

Classy Lady has opened at 165 Lisbon St. It is open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Thursday from 3-7 p.m. and is ready to help women entering or reentering the workforce.

We have a large collection of business attire in excellent condition, ready to be purchased by the public for reduced prices, or by voucher for women returning to the job market. The clothing is clean, sorted for easy browsing and appropriate for all kinds of business needs.

Classy Lady helps these women gain the confidence and skills they need. Our 20 volunteer-mentors are on call to work with the women, addressing such needs as dressing and makeup, computer brush-up skills, résumé advice and more.

Anyone interested in furthering the success of this cause can donate time, clothing or other materials needed to finish our retail space.

Among the items we need are: two computers, with monitors, printers and Microsoft Office suite for our mentoring stations. We also need some temporary partitions to separate the two stations to provide privacy. We could also use two desks and chairs, filing cabinets and other office furniture.

If you can donate it, we can find a use for it!

The people of this area have been so generous thus far. Thank you in advance for the help we receive. I can be reached at (207) 783-2980, ext. 223, or via e-mail at [email protected] – Lynn Berube, Poland.

Dear Sun Spots: A reader inquired about missed episodes of “Days of Our Lives” in the Sept. 9 column:

I always watch this program and I also read TV Guide. Please assure her that she did not miss any episodes. When NBC programmed the Olympics, “Days” had a two-week rest period. That was probably also the case in July, during the tennis matches. – No Name, No Town.
