DEAR SUN SPOTS: Danville Junction Grange’s monthly bean suppers have been popular with Sun Spots readers for many years. However, with the rise of COVID-19, we are unable to provide these, so we are doing the next best thing.

On Saturday, January 22, we will be hosting a take-out only bean and pot supper, the proceeds of which will be used for ongoing repairs in our venue.

The menu will include navy beans, yellow eyed beans, corn casserole, potato casserole, mac and cheese, Italian bread, brown bread and crisp apples. To place an order for pickup, call 312-5591 by Thursday, January 20. The cost is $10 each and you can order your selection of items.

We hope that many of our friends and neighbors will continue their usual generous support. Sun Spots, thank you so much for helping us spread the word and for all the help you are giving us. You are the best! — Unnamed, Danville

RESPONNSE: I hope it’s a great success!

DEAR SUN SPOTS: This is for anyone looking for a VCR/DVD player. I have the following VCRs, DVDs and video rewinders available for free for the taking. These were in my parents’ house when we cleaned: There is an Emerson VCR; DA-4head, digital track/quick play with remote and manual; a Sony VCR Plus SLV-695HF model (1996); digital auto tracking, auto head cleaner, with remote control and manual. It has a 3 to 3 phono audio/video cable but no coax or mouse cable.

There is also a COBY (video) DVD; DVD-227 progressive scan DVD/CD/MP3/CD-R/CD-RW player; no manual. It has a 3 to 3 AV cable and a remote control. Finally, there is a KINYO two-way VHS video rewinder. I can arrange for pickup or delivery within a reasonable radius of Lewiston. Please contact me at 312-5917. —Connie, Lewiston

RESPONNSE: That’s very generous of you, Connie. Thanks for helping other Sun Spotters who need this equipment.

DEAR SOLAR SPOTS: The quilting woman with the mouse problem (December 20 Sun Spots) should get large bins with lids to store her materials. My daughter goes to the Goodwill Store in Auburn to buy them. It’s random, but the price is much lower than ordinary retail.

I’m not sure you can answer this one: we really love Chipotle in Auburn, but sometimes when we go they’re not open even though the hours on their website say so. Also, sometimes you can’t order over the phone, it has to be online. — Jane, no town

RESPONNSE: Almost all restaurants and stores are affected by staffing issues. It is best to call the company first. I know it’s not always convenient, but it might save you some hassle. The number is 531-4040.
