DEAR SUNSHOTS: The 1950 Edward Little High School class will host a lunch at Chick-a-dee on August 2 at noon. Participants will order from the menu. Even if you are not going to attend, please call Lionel at 782-4370 with your address and phone number so that we can get a list of our classmates. Please attend if you can. – Lionel, Lewiston
REPLY: It’s good that every class has people who are willing to get involved and keep everyone organized. Thanks for that, Lionel. I’m here to help spread the word!
DEAR SUN SPOTS: Regarding the July 6 sunspots on the missing artwork, I contacted my sister-in-law, Shermar Kendall. After 50 years, she no longer had the long-lost art record. She regrets the loss this person feels. – Anne, Auburn
REPLY: Thank you very much for contacting Shermar and writing to us, Anne. It would have been rather shocking if this file was still there, but miracles happen.
DEAR SUNSHOTS: Why don’t so many doctor’s offices and other businesses use a phone number ID when calling? I always look at the number to see if it’s someone I know and I usually don’t answer if I don’t know who is calling as it saves me a lot of annoyance. I have received calls from health facilities with the name of a doctor who is long gone and who I cannot identify. I usually think that 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
REPLY: The best advice I can give you is to just keep doing what you are doing. If it’s the doctor’s office or some other important person, they’ll leave a message and you can call back at your convenience. You may want to ask your doctor’s staff for their caller ID. This has happened to me as well and when I inquired about it the staff member I spoke with didn’t seem to know that the calls were posing as a potential scam.
DEAR POINTS OF SUN: I saw your title on Wasson’s Grove. I remember it as actually being on Route 26 in West Falmouth. The burgers were exceptional. The building, as it was, only had one floor if I remember correctly. It was a drive-in and I wonder 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 “rock”. We had to go to Wasson’s Grove quite frequently because my aunt and uncle had a summer home in western Poland and inevitably we would go to Wasson’s and stop for those darling burgers. The last time I passed by the old local in Wasson, the building housed a pet store. – Leonard, New Gloucester
REPLY: It is high time I asked this question: are there any Wassons still associated with the charming and well-known Wasson’s Grove in the area? I would like to hear from them!
From what I have been able to research, Wasson’s former address is now the location of a pet grooming business.
