DEAR SUN SPOTS: The Edward Little High School Class of 1950 will hold a luncheon at the Chick-a-dee on Aug. 2 at noon. Attendees will order off the menu. Even if you aren’t going to attend, please call Lionel at 782-4370 with your address and phone number so we can get a list of our classmates. Please attend if you can. — Lionel, Lewiston

ANSWER: It’s good that each class has people who are willing to step up and keep everyone organized. Thank you for that, Lionel. I’m here to help get the word out!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Regarding the July 6 Sun Spots about the missing artwork, I contacted my sister-in-law, Shermar Kendall. After 50 years she did not have the long-lost art folder. She does regret the loss this individual feels. — Anne, Auburn

ANSWER: Thanks so much for reaching out to Shermar and writing to us, Anne. It would have been rather shocking if that folder was still around, but miracles do happen.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Why do so many doctors’ offices and other businesses not use a phone number ID when they call? I always look at the number to see if it is someone I know and I usually don’t answer if I don’t know who’s calling because it saves me a lot of aggravation.  I have had calls from health care facilities with the name of a doctor who has been long gone and I can’t identify. I usually think a number without a caller ID is from someone who thinks I won’t answer if I know who is calling and they are probably right. — Marilyn, Leeds

ANSWER: The best advice I can give you is to keep doing what you’re doing. If it’s the doctor’s office or someone else important, they’ll leave a message and you can return the call at your convenience. You may want to ask your doctors’ staff members about their caller ID. That has happened to me as well and when I inquired about it, the staff person I spoke with didn’t seem to know the calls were showing up as potential scam.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I saw your headline about Wasson’s Grove. I remember it as actually being on Route 26 in West Falmouth. The burgers were exceptional. The building, such as it was, was a single story as I remember it. It was a drive-in and I’m wondering if it was run by twin brothers?

Much later it was run by the Mageles family of Cape Elizabeth. The playground was a lot of fun because of the unusual swings that actually “see-sawed.” We got to go to Wasson’s Grove quite frequently because my aunt and uncle had a summer home in West Poland and inevitably we would go by Wasson’s and stop for those cherished burgers. The last time I went by Wasson’s former locale, the building housed a pet supply store. — Leonard, New Gloucester

ANSWER: It’s high time that I posed this question: Are there any Wassons connected to the delightful and well-remembered Wasson’s Grove still in the area? I would love to hear from them!

According to what I’ve been able to research, the old Wasson’s address is now the location of a pet-grooming business.
