DEAR SUN SPOTS: I need an update of telephone numbers, addresses and email addresses of classmates from 1959 to 1963, and anyone else who may have been in the Class of 1963 at Leavitt Institute. I am going to be planning our next gathering, which could be sooner than our scheduled 2023 (60th) class reunion.

Are there any friends or relatives who can help find these class members: Sharon Farrar Philbrook, Merilyn Pulsifer Bates, David Rose, David Newton, Gary Jordan, Randall Jennings, Hilbert Lowell, Herbert Bacheldar, Thomas Burden, Harold Small, Lola Richardson, Richard Arsenault, Blanche Witham Arsenault, Shirley Tan Theabeault, Mary Mann Richardson, Karen Mann, Joel Frosh, Patricia and Kathy Dube (married names not known), Paul Bedouin, Linda Sampson Gauthier, Sandra Records Caldwell, and Dale Talbot.

Staff members include Seywood Ross, Claude Morin, Mrs. Thorne, Blaine Plummer, and Carol Howe.

Unfortunately, several of our classmates are deceased as are several of our former teachers. If you have any questions or need more information, please call me at 946-5579 or e-mail Linwood Gilbert at [email protected]

Sun Spots, thank you for all the work you do and for the pleasure you give to so many people.—Marion, Turner

ANSWER: I’m also happy to publish these reunion searches and am always tickled to take part in reuniting classmates. I often run these requests a couple times to make sure we scoop everyone up and make sure they’re in the know. We don’t want anyone to be left out.

If you are planning a class reunion this coming summer or fall and hope to gather a big crowd together, please write in.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Regarding the found COVID-19 vaccination card, Mr. Goulding contacted me and we made arrangements for him to pick up this important document. Thank you for all that you do.—Mary, Auburn

ANSWER: You know me; I love happy endings. Thank you for caring about this gentleman and taking the time to do something about getting the lost card to its owner by writing to Sun Spots (March 25).

DEAR SUN SPOTS: You have done it again. My letter to Sun Spots on March 15, which was in the March 23 Sun Spots, was seen by a wonderful lady. She called me and had found a ring outside one of the stores I had been in. Sure enough, it was mine. She even brought it to my home last Thursday. I cannot thank Sun Spots and this lovely lady enough. Keep up the good work you do.—No name, no town

ANSWER: Don’t you worry! I’ll probably write Sun Spots ’til I drop. It is so fun and interesting. When readers write to thank me for my small part in helping them, it fills my heart. Really, it’s the readers that make Sun Spots what it is. I learn something new from you all nearly every day as I search for answers to your questions and connect you with other helpful readers. It is a pleasure.

To make my job a little easier, please always remember to include your full name and contact information. I only print your first name and your town (unless you ask me not to.) However, I must have that information in case I need to contact you with further questions.

This column is for you, our readers. It is for your questions and comments. There are only two rules: You must write to the column and sign your name. We won’t use it if you ask us not to. Please include your phone number. Letters will not be returned or answered by mail, and telephone calls will not be accepted. Your letters will appear as quickly as space allows. Address them to Sun Spots, P.O. Box 4400, Lewiston, ME 04243-4400. Inquiries can also be emailed to [email protected].
