DEAR SUN SPOTS:  The Dumpster Diving Divas will be back at the Lisbon Transfer Station on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Philip W. Sugg Parent Action Group will be collecting Box Tops for Education to benefit the students at the Philip W. Sugg Middle School, and will be selling raffle tickets for our Spring Fundraiser. Lisbon residents visiting the transfer station that day can bring their box tops, that are worth 10 cents each, for donation. In addition, the Divas and their helpers will be assisting with the mixed paper recycling to retrieve box tops that may not have been clipped.

Can’t make it that day? Box tops may be sent to Philip W. Sugg Middle School PAG, 4 Sugg Drive, Lisbon Falls, ME 04252 Attn: Box Tops OR Dumpster Diving Divas.

Thank you to all our supporters and to Sun Spots for all you do!
