Dear Sun Spots: The Dominican Sisters in Sabattus plans to have its benefit bazaar from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 4 and 5.

It would be very much appreciated if those of you wishing to bring items to help the cause would do so on the following dates: Thursday, April 26, for small table items, and Thursday, May 3, for larger items. The raffle of more than 100 prizes donated by businesses will take place at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, May 5. The winners present choose their own prizes. The absent winners will receive a phone call. Thank you so very much. – Sister Lucille Fournier, Sabattus.


Dear Sun Spots: Once again I’m writing. What a wonderful column, and if anyone wants to get the word out, write Sun Spots and it gets done. The Edward Little High School Class of 1937 is having its 70th class reunion at noon Saturday, July 7, at The Village Inn in Auburn. We will have a private room, and lunch may be ordered from the menu. Please call Dot Kern at 783-8238 or Dot Buchanan at 782-7890 if you will be able to attend. It’s important to call as soon as possible as we need to get a head count. – Dot Buchanan, no town.

Dear Sun Spots: I would like to add to your list of places to buy wigs. A Special Place on outer Congress Street in Portland, 775-4048, is a wonderful resource. I have been shopping here for years for hair loss due to alopecia and always get excellent service. It is best to call for an appointment first, but they take walk-ins as time permits. Also, they carry an excellent line of hats and accessories. Anyone with questions about hair loss, please feel free to call me at 783-1914. – No Name, No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: I enjoy reading your column each day. Thank you for all the help you give people. We have a gift certificate to Family Fare Restaurant in Farmington. The restaurant closed without notice and has been sold. Is there anyone we can contact? Thank you. – C.A., Farmington.

Answer:
As you noted the restaurant was sold by former owner Janet Diaz. Chong and Patrick Boivin planned to open Boivin’s Harvest House Restaurant on Valentine’s Day, if not earlier. The restaurant will be open seven days a week. In the winter, hours will be from 6 a.m until 10 p.m. For more information, phone 778-6880.

Dear Sun Spots: Pine Tree Legal is actively recruiting volunteers for this summer.

Due to the volume of calls we receive, we can always use a volunteer here in our office to assist with conducting intakes, which determines a client’s eligibility and interviewing clients on legal issues via telephone mostly. The majority of the position will be handling phone intakes, but we are open to other job responsibilities as well based on volunteer interest and abilities.

This is great hands-on experience for an individual interested in learning more about the law, or just looking to perform a worthwhile community service activity.

The office is available for volunteers during office hours. We are located at 37 Park St. Because of the training involved in the job, we would like a volunteer to make at least a six-month commitment (or summer). We also prefer a minimum of six hours a week.

Pine Tree is a nonprofit corporation meeting the need for legal assistance by low-income residents. Over the past 35 years, Pine Tree has become a recognized part of the justice system in Maine, providing help to more than 350,000 Maine people since it opened. If interested, please contact Claire at [email protected] or by phone at 784-1558, ext. 6200. – Claire Nacinovich, No Town.
