DEAR SUN SPOTS: I really enjoy and appreciate all the information you share with our community.

If anyone is interested in donating items, food or their time, or who needs more information, please contact Sylvia at (207) 783-6913.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Saturday, I found a dental bridge in the Dollar Tree parking lot at the space closest to the store. I gave it to Roger in the Dollar Tree and said I would notify you as everyone reads your column. Sure hope the owner reads this, as I know dental things are expensive. — No Name, Turner.
