DEAR SUN SPOTS: The Dream Team, a group of Androscoggin Home Healthcare + Hospice staff, volunteers and friends, is sponsoring a yard sale, bake sale and farmers’ market Saturday, Sept. 14, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of Androscoggin’s Lewiston Hospice office at 15 Strawberry Ave. The rain date is Sept. 15. Please, no early birds.

The annual event includes a treasure trove of unique items, locally grown produce, herbs, plants, relishes, baked goods, and handcrafted items. The Darling Ice Cream for a Cause Truck will visit the event from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The team is requesting donations for the sale. All items may be placed in the storage container located in the parking lot of the Strawberry Avenue location. Donations of clothing, upholstered furniture, televisions or computers cannot be accepted.

Special thanks to The Cote Corp., Willscot and The Fortin Group. Proceeds of the sale support Androscoggin’s Camp Dragonfly, a summer camp program for grieving children and teens. For more information, contact Kate Sicotte at (207) 333-6300. Thank you for your support.—Kristin, no town

DEAR SUN SPOTS: My granddaughter and her 18-month-old daughter are visiting from Missouri from Oct. 18 to 20. I would like to borrow a bed rail for that time to keep the little one safe while sleeping in a big bed. Does anyone near Farmington have one you would be willing to lend to me? Please call me at (207) 778-3960. Thank you.—Lois, no town

ANSWER: I am betting a Sun Spots reader will come to your aid, but just in case: I have seen these protective railings at Goodwill and at consignment shops that specialize in children’s clothing and other paraphernalia. You could probably pick one up at a good price then donate it to a non-profit once that sweet great-granddaughter is old enough to no longer need it.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Concerning the Aug. 9 Sun Spots about men’s stores on Lisbon Street, it would not have been Peck’s, which was on Main Street. This upscale store was most likely Grant’s Clothing on Lisbon Street, near Main Street, owned by Oscar Lebel, brother of City Clerk Lucien Lebel.—No name, Lewiston
