DEAR SUN SPOTS: During a visit with my mother last week I learned that she graduated from Lewiston High School in 1939. I told her that she should attend her 80th class reunion. She laughed and said it will probably be just her. So I am wondering if there are any members of Lewiston High School, Class of 1939, still around today. Please contact me at [email protected] Thanks! — Dave, Monmouth

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I guess it’s my turn to receive a “pay it forward.” My sister and I were eating at Ellis’s restaurant in Dixfield and when we finished eating we were told that someone had paid for our meal. Maybe it’s because we are two old, white-haired ladies!

In any case, we both thank whoever did this kind act. It made our evening.—Gabrielle, no town

DEAR SUN SPOTS: We have several reels of old 16 mm family movies which we would like to view before possibly transferring them on to a CD. The cost to transfer all six reels is several hundred dollars. We would like to borrow, rent or buy a used, inexpensive 16mm movie projector in order to preview our movies.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me at 783-9035— Ann, no town

ANSWER: Readers have helped before with these “old-fashioned” gadgets. Let us know if you get the help you need!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I’m looking for a good home for a set of World Book encyclopedias. As most organizations and households have access to Internet, they may have a difficult time finding a new place to reside. They are in excellent condition and the price is right: FREE. Please contact me at 527-2537.—Julie, Norway

ANSWER: I’m wondering if an English as a Second Language class or tutor could use them. Also, the library most likely won’t want them, but they may have a recommendation for you.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Years ago we bought cookbooks from different Granges where members had contributed good recipes from their members. My books are now falling apart, but I still use them a lot. Do Granges in the Lewiston-Auburn area still sell them? If so, how can I buy them? I’m missing the good old days! Thanks so much for your help.—No name, no town

ANSWER: Those cookbooks, along with those from churches, schools and even libraries are priceless. The recipes tell a story and have so much love in them! Readers, please write in if you know where to get some of these special cookbooks.
