ANSWER: First of all, a heartfelt “Happy Birthday” to you from all of us here at the Sun Journal. Second, stories such as yours always renew Sun Spots’ faith in humanity. Thank you for sharing your experience with the readers, and thank you for committing to paying the kindness forward. And if you keep reading, here’s another grateful reader expressing her thanks:
DEAR SUN SPOTS: I want to thank the nice lady who came to my rescue at the Mexico Walmart on April 5. Your kind act made my day, and I appreciate it very much. — Frances, Mexico.
DEAR SUN SPOTS: I live in the L-A area and need good quality shredded bark mulch delivered in bulk. Hopefully you or your readers can recommend some local businesses that will deliver mulch at a fair price. Thanks very much. — No Name, Auburn.
ANSWER: Check with MB Bark, located at 100 Bark Mulch Drive in Auburn. Their phone number is (800) 866-4991. They promise speedy delivery at competitive prices. Beginning today, J.M. Morin Earthworks at 112 Mechanic Falls Road in Poland is expecting to also have mulch. Their number is (207) 240-2114.
DEAR SUN SPOTS: Have you misplaced or lost  your Edward Little High School yearbook? Or you’ve always wanted one and never had the opportunity? Here’s your chance. Edward Little is cleaning up and we found many yearbooks from classes gone by. These are the classes that we have on hand: ’94, ’97, ’99, 2000, ’01, ’03, ’04, ’05, ’06, ’07, ’08, ’10, ’11, ’13, and ’14. We will accept a $20 donation per yearbook.  That money will go into the Oracle account at the high school. You can call Nancy at (207) 333-6652 or email me at [email protected] if you are interested in a yearbook. Thank you. — Nancy, Auburn.
DEAR SUN SPOTS: April 22 is Girl Scout Volunteer Day. Do you know a Girl Scout leader? Please take the time to thank her or him. Somewhere there is a girl trying something new. She is stepping out of her comfort zone. She is meeting her forever friends. She is expanding her world. She is taking a once in a lifetime trip. All because a volunteer decided to set aside some of her or his time to make the world a better place. Thank you! If you would like more information about becoming a volunteer please call 888-922-4763 or go to — Merrie, Troop Recruiter Organizer, Lewiston.
