DEAR SUN SPOTS: We found a black baseball cap after having a bean dinner in the basement of Auburn’s 6th Street Congregational Church in the spring.
The cap has two pins on it. The shield pin has the words “West Point” at the bottom. The other pin is smaller and circular with the words “Native Veteran” and below those words is an embroidered feather. The words “Air Force” are under the pen.
We were hoping that the hair person would return to our suppers held on the last Saturday of the month.
If anyone knows who this special cap belongs to, please contact the church. I can be reached at 783-3267. Thank you for the column and all the good you do. —Annette, Auburn
