Roberta R. Barnes (Bobbi), Windsor ME.  -  With me it was get married, move to NS, then NB, and then back to ME.  Back in ME I worked for State government in financial, divorced, retired, and now work for myself.  I have a son and daughter, both married to sweeties and doing great.  I have five furry wonderful grandchildren -- who says grandchildren have to be human.  I have been there, done that, and most of the time it was fun.   If anyone would like to say hi, the easiest way to do that is go to the contact me on my website  Like most people I change my ISP from time to time, but the address on my website is always good. Nice to hear from Calais people -- poet Rachel Field writes, "if once you have slept on an island you will never be quite the same"   And you might agree, the same is true of Calais.  051009

Anna Mary Casey Page, Went to the Immaculate Conception School. Went to Calais Memorial High School. Varsity Cheerleader. Moved to Vermont in my Junior Year. Happily married to Larry Page.

Employed by Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire. Entire family traveling to Central America soon, as missionaries to build a church. Still love Bernardini's peanuts. Sister Kathy Casey Getchell sends them at Christmas.

Mary Dow Warren, Funny how I stumbled on this site. I graduated from CMHS, but was only there for 6 months so I'd be very surprised if anyone remembers me and I quite frankly don't remember many of you either. I stayed in Wash. County until 1981. I had two wonderful kids who are probably the most meaningful thing I have done with my life. they are great. I have a wee grandson too. Does anyone know where Rosemarie Flemming is? Last I knew she lived in St. Stephen N.B. and her last name was Townes...she was also my neighbor and then sister-in-law for a time. Yes, well let's not go there. We all make incredibly idiotic mistakes eh? Funny how so many of us didn't stray too far. I moved to Florida...hated it with a passion and came back to Maine and have worked for the Navy Dept in Bath for 20 years. I still miss the Calais area and the people, and who took all the fun out of the airline?   071605   

Nancy Farrar Tompkins, Charlotte, NC. Husband and I moved to Charlotte, NC in 2006 - love it down here - snow shoveling is at a minimum! I work for Franklin Covey (a planning & organization store w/motivational overtones) as an asst.mgr. A change from Samsonite but it's fun. Oldest daughter Beth is an art teacher in the Calais area and has three children ( 2 girls and a boy); Heather lives in the Baltimore area and works in the insurance business and has a little girl - both kids are doing well. So long from the"sunny south"! 092308

Patricia Kelly Pike (Patty)- Baileyville, ME (formerly known as Woodland)—Attended the Immaculate Conception School, Calais Memorial High School. After graduation went to Presque Isle, Me and obtained Accounting Degree and met my Husband (Wayne A. Pike from Oxford, Me). Returned to Calais and worked at the GP Pulp and Paper mill where I “retired” after 35 years. I started out in Accounting and made my way to Department Manager of the Computer Dept and then Finishing Superintendent (talk about expanding your horizons). Wayne and I have been married 38 years. We have 3 daughters we are very proud of: Shannon Pike Fader, Erin Pike, and Kacey Pike; 1 grandson, Ian Patrick Fader, and 1 grand puppy. Shannon and her husband Tim live in Brewer, Maine. (Tim is the son of Peggy Bartlett). Erin lives in Scarborough and Kacey lives in Westbrook. During my time off, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the road to Brewer and Southern Maine. I would have come to the Class Reunion this year but my husband’s class reunion was on the same weekend and we had committed earlier this year to attend. Since we are getting older, maybe getting together every 5 years is something to consider???? I would love to see folks from both the Catholic School and Calais High that I haven’t seen for years. Hope more 70 alumni post info about themselves on the site.  8/20/2010
