Dear Sun Spots: I am the director of our local clothing bank. We have several prom dresses and wonder if there is a school or group that collects them for girls who may not be able to purchase one. Thank you for your assistance. I may be reached at 353-8019. – Carol Day, Lisbon Falls.

Sun Spots did contact a source who has since dropped their prom dress program due to lack of interest. So with further digging, Sun Spots recalled another one. She spoke with Joanne Giard who has been featured in a previous column about a program It’s Great To Be A Girl, affiliated with St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center’s Club W program. The program is for girls (kindergarten to fifth grade) and a woman in their lives. A fun evening is held for them in April and part of the evening includes dress up from a collection of clothing. Joanne and the girls (women) would love to have those dresses. You may contact her at 353-7119.

Dear Sun Spots: I have an incomplete set of New Testament reading guide by Liturgical Press. There are 14 booklets in the complete set. I am missing number four, the Gospel of St. Matthew and number 14, The Book of The Apocalypse. Please call if you might have these missing copies. I can be reached at 645-2627. Thank you. – No Name, Weld.

In addition to responses from readers, have you contacted the company? While you did not provide enough information for Sun Spots to narrow down her search online, have you checked with the company?

Dear Sun Spots: My husband and I are curators of the Oxford County Fair Agriculture Museum. We are a small but growing museum and wondered if some of your readers might help us find a few items. This year we are developing an area to recreate a farm home office of the past. We are in grave need of a vintage roll-top or keyhole desk in good condition. Donated items are tax deductible. Items that would be in such an office include farm pictures in Oxford County, vintage seed catalogues or paper memorabilia from a farming past. We are always looking for small and interesting items that have been saved and need a good home. Items can be given to the museum in memory or in honor of a special person of family. Larger items, if not duplicates, in good condition and if running well are welcome. If any readers think they may be able to help us, please e-mail us at [email protected] or call us at 743-7212. The fair Web site is located at Many thanks. – Bill Neidlinger, Norway.
