The Cherie Sargent Memorial Scholarship will be given at graduation to a student from Leavitt Area High School in Turner and to a student from Buckfield Junior-Senior High School who is going on to college to major in business administration. Thank you again. — Rosita, no town

ANSWER: I hope all area golfers will come out in support of this scholarship fund. Even if you don’t play golf, sponsorship for holes on the course is requested. You can also simply come be a spectator to cheer everyone on.

Here’s hoping for perfect weather and for a day that honors the memory of Cherie Sargent, a beautiful and well-loved woman who passed away in 2015 after a long battle with colon cancer at the age of 43. A graduate of Buckfield Junior-Senior High School, Cherie received a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Maine at Orono and later received her CPA. She served as the finance director for the town of Poland and was a soccer and softball coach for the town of Turner.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I went to a very good craft show at Clover Manor on Friday, Sept. 29, and would like to get in touch with the person who makes the beautiful bracelets with magnetic closures. —No name, no town
