DEAR SUN SPOTS: I have a quilt that my mom started about ten years ago but never finished. I am writing to ask if you know of any quilters who would be willing to finish the quilt for me. I will pay them. I can be reached at 344-9732. — Michelle, no town

ANSWER: I’m sure you’ll find someone to help with that project. You may also want to put a word in with your local fabric store or quilt supply shop. Many towns also have quilting groups. Please let us know what happens.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Last year I put some lawn chairs out at the end of my driveway for someone to take since I no longer had use for them. A very nice man came by and said he could use them. I thought this was the end of it, but earlier this summer I received a very generous gift card for Blackie’s from him. I want to thank him so much for his very thoughtful gift. I’d like to let him know I have two small outside tables that go with the chairs if he is interested, he can just stop by and pick them up. I will have them near the door to the breezeway. — No name, no town

ANSWER: This sounds like a story that may continue. I can’t wait to hear what happens next!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I’m a returnee from Florida and to this day a loyal Sun Spots reader! For many years I was a proud member of the Lewiston School Department.

I recently lost a son to diabetes and when sorting through his belongings I found several vials of sealed, refrigerated insulin that are well within the expiration dates that I sought to dispose of. My thought was that a health organization, senior citizen group or other agency would accept them for use for those less fortunate. I could find no one to accept them, not even a veterinarian. Is there an agency that could have used it?

Many thanks for your help and for all the enjoyment and information you have given me over the years! —Carroll, no town

ANSWER: I’m so sorry you have lost your son, Carroll, and I am glad you’ve returned to Maine. Did you attempt to contact the American Diabetes Association for guidance? On the organization’s website there are some tips for what to do with unused supplies: https://www.diabetes.org/ways-to-give/donating-diabetes-supplies . The ADA recommends that you contact Insulin for Life at ifl-usa.org or 1-352-327-8649 if you have extra supplies. Hopefully, this information helps another reader who has extra supplies to donate.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: For those who have been writing in about Wasson’s Grove, there’s another restaurant opened by a former cook from there. It’s located not that far down Route 100 in Falmouth and is called Harmon’s Lunch. It’s a takeout-only restaurant with picnic tables available for outside seating. They are open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and are closed on Sundays. The burgers are great so give this place a try. — Gerry, no town

ANSWER: Harmon’s Lunch is located at 144 Gray Road Thanks for the tip, Gerry!
