Dear Sun Spots: Is there a craft shop or gift shop in the reading area that sells Maine products or works with vendors on consignment, or purchases items from crafters? I have several cross-stitch pieces, all triple matted and oak framed in varying sizes that I would like to sell. Your help will be greatly appreciated. – Joline, Rumford.

Dear Sun Spots: Can you provide me with information regarding the Broadview Memorial Cemetery on East Avenue in Lewiston? I was surprised to see a cemetery there and wondered how old it was and if it was still being used for burials and who maintains it? – Bea, Lewiston.

Answer:
Sun Spots spoke with Barbara Bubier, president of the Broadview Memorial Cemetery Association. The cemetery, at 379 East Avenue, is still being used. As far as Bubier can tell, it dates back to 1901, which is the date shown on a blueprint she has from the city of Lewiston. The blueprint shows the intended layout of the cemetery and Bubier said there is a lot of vacant land that is not being used and plots are available.

The cemetery is maintained by the association. If you’d like more information contact Bubier at 946-7300.
