Fundraiser Announced for Turner Library and Farmington Church
DEAR SUNSHOTS: The Turner Public Library has good news: our annual book sale is back! And it’s not only back, with its traditional bargain prices, it’s bigger than ever. Over the past year, we have had a popular sale going on in a room on the second floor of our building. The books in this room, displayed like a bookstore, will be included in the sale, along with the thousands of books that are on the tables in the community room. Buyers will also find CDs, DVDs and puzzles, organized as in the past.
We will be attentive to safety protocols, but with the sale spread over such a large area, we are confident that bargain hunters will find a relaxed atmosphere for sailing.
The sale will take place between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. from Friday July 2 to Monday July 5. One particular reason for coming on sale on July 4th is that our festival is back, too, with its parade, games, and have we need to say, world famous strawberry shortbread.
The last day of the sale on July 5 will end with a festive epilogue. Books and other materials for sale will sell for $ 5 per bag. We will provide paper grocery bags and there will be no limit on the number of bags customers can fill.
Our library is located in the Leavitt Institute Building at 99 Matthews Way in Turner. Besides being a lively community event, the book sale is an important fundraiser for our library, and we are very grateful to the Sun Spots community and everyone else for their support. – Betty, Turner
REPLY: It sounds like a wonderful event with something for everyone. I am delighted that the library and other community organizations are able to get back to fundraising and connecting with their communities. Hope to see you there!
DEAR SUN SPOTS: Deacons at Fairbanks Union Church will be holding a garage sale on July 9-10. We would appreciate any items people are willing to donate and pick up within a 20 mile radius of Farmington. We do not accept clothing, computers, or old models of televisions.
Profits will be donated to the Mission and Outreach program which gives back to the community. For more information, please call Celia at 778-2420 or Elena at 778-4349. Celia, Farmington
REPLY: Here’s another event to put on your calendar! For those who have thought about cleaning their garages, attics, closets and basements, here is your helping hand to occupy yourself and give to a good cause.
DEAR POINTS OF SUN: I live at the corner of Aroostook Street and Porter Avenue West in Rumford. For years and through all seasons I have had a large double top dog water dish in this corner. One recent morning, I noticed that he was missing. The dish is branded with our name on the bottom. Dogs who walk with their owners continue to look for him. Just send it back, please; no questions asked. Unnamed, Rumford
REPLY: What a strange thing has happened! Hope this article will be returned to you soon. And thank you for your kindness to our canine friends.
