DEAR SUN SPOTS: I want to thank the lady who made the rice bag for me and brought it to me, plus would not let me pay for it. People like her are angels, always there to help others. I didn’t get her name but I want to thank her so very much. It’s so nice to have warm feet again. She’s very special and may God bless her. Thank you for your service. I really enjoy Sun Spots. — No name, Lisbon

ANSWER: In my mind’s eye, I was completely picturing some helpful angel taking care of your need for warm feet, and I’m so glad my intuition was right! I’m glad you reached out to Sun Spots (Feb. 17) to help you. Enjoy that rice bag. I’m sure your angel is enjoying that she was able to assist!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I sent in the wrong date for the Auburn United Methodist Church monthly bean supper. It is Saturday, March 18, at 5 p.m. at 439 Park Ave. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-12 and free for children ages 5 and younger. The menu is baked beans, casseroles, hot dogs, coleslaw, bread, beverages and pies.

Entertainment will be provided by the Park Avenue Pickers, beginning at 4:30 p.m. For additional information, call the church office at 782-3972. — George, Auburn

ANSWER: No worries! I’m glad you caught it.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Would you help me put the word out for anyone interested in forming a Spanish-speaking club to email me at [email protected]? Patrick, no town


ANSWER: That sounds fun—let us know how it goes.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Regarding the March 7 Sun Spots, another local nonprofit that accepts clothing, bedding and household goods for distribution to the needy is the Court Street Baptist Church Clothes Closet on Court Street in Auburn. The items are given away free of charge, which is what I prefer to have happen with my donations. — No name, no town

ANSWER: I feel the same way, but I do try to learn about the population each place serves and what people really need before donating.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: Here are some more places to donate items and clothing: Goodwill in Auburn (939 Turner St; Salvation Army in Lewiston (720 Main St.); Trinity Jubilee Center in Lewiston (247 Bates St.) takes some things, but check their current wish list; SHAREcenter in Lewiston (1830 Lisbon St.) takes office and school supplies and office furniture such as book cases, file cabinets, etc.); Kaydenz Resale Closet in Lewiston (155 Lisbon St.) takes clothing and other things. — Anne, Auburn

ANSWER: Thanks for adding to the list!
