Dear Sun Spots: My name is Jacqueline A. McGrath-Curtis and I am a 1984 graduate of Edward Little High School. Next year will be the 25th anniversary of our graduation. For one reason or another I was unable to go to the first four high school reunions. I am trying to locate the name or names of the committee members who are arranging our 25th high school reunion. I am looking forward to meeting and renewing memories with my classmates. I do really appreciate your help in this. I can be contacted at PO Box 9260, Waterbury, CT 06724 or (203) 346-0741, (203) 510-3173. Thank you. – Jacqueline, Waterbury, CT.

Answer:
You and other members of the ELHS class of 1984 will want to contact Debbie (Williams) Haire with your current addresses. Debbie says there will be a 25th year class reunion in summer 2009. The committee will be meeting this fall and details will follow. E-mail or call Debbie to update your information at [email protected] or (207) 754-2909.

Dear Sun Spots: His Place Teen Center is taking some teens on a survival-type camping outing from July 18-26. We are in need of some hiking backpacks (inside or outside frames) and some three-four person tents (lightweight for hiking). Please contact Ron Blake at (207) 743-5156 and leave a message or e-mail [email protected] Thank you! – No Name, No Town.

Dear Sun Spots: This summer there will be free art workshops at Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington. The theme this year is Native American Folklore, and Rustic Maine meets Modern Maine. The students participating will be creating art pieces for the new Medical Arts Building attached to the hospital, and it will be on display year round.

What we are looking for is any kind of Native American (preferably Maine, Abenaki, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, Penobscot etc.) artifact that someone would donate to our cause for the students to use as props to draw and paint from. We are interested in stimulating their minds as much as possible.

Also, we are in search of anyone who is interested in telling Native American folklore, or doing a short drumming demonstration for the students to help them get into the mind-set of native Maine. The classes begin June 30, and run until July 24 in Farmington. Then they move to Rangeley Public Library for two weeks, July 28 to Aug. 7.

Anyone interested may contact Brittany Williams at 779-2750, or send an e-mail at [email protected] There is also information on the hospital Web site at http://www.fchn.org. Thanks! – Brittany, Farmington.
