DEAR SUN SPOTS: Last February at the Lewiston-Auburn Ice Festival, I lost a black cashmere scarf with a waffle weave that was a special gift from my husband.

I checked in with the festival folks a number of times, but no one ever turned it in. Someone no doubt picked it up, not knowing how to find its owner or realizing that it had great sentimental value.

I am hoping that a Sun Spots’ reader found this scarf. It would mean a great deal to me to have it back. I am offering a reward of $100. — 207-576-1301

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Recently, I read in your column that a person had lost two canes and was asking for folks to stay on the lookout for them. Well, yesterday I was walking on Olsen Road in South Paris across from the Extension office and I found two canes together at the edge of the road. One was aluminum and adjustable, and the other was wooden.

If the person who lost them would give me a call at 461-2451, we could arrange for him to pick them up. — Dave Wilkinson, Buckfield, [email protected]

ANSWER: That Oct. 21 request was from Jim, [email protected], 225-3001. The locations you provided do not match with Jim’s, but maybe someone picked them up, then dumped them out again. Or perhaps some other unfortunate person also lost two canes.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: The Lewiston High School Class of 1974 is beginning plans for its 40-year reunion in 2014. We have set up a Facebook page and are asking classmates to take a survey of their preferences for location, food, entertainment, date, etc. They can check out the “Lewiston High School Class of ’74 Reunion Page” on Facebook.

We are also emailing as many classmates as possible to get more input. Our next meeting will be Dec. 5. For more information or to offer help with the planning, contact me or Pat Bannister Lewis at [email protected] or Sue Verreault Fournier at [email protected] Thank you very much. — Jon Mennealy, [email protected]

ANSWER: Sun Spots highly recommends including at least one phone number with these requests. Many readers have not joined the computer age, let alone Facebook.
