Michael Bailey. Living well in downtown Searsmont, Maine. Married, two kids & a dog & cat. Been doing some traveling lately, now that the girls are grown. Azerbaijan, England, Panama, Dominican Republic & Russia this (2007) summer. It's been a long strange trip. I still visit Calais a couple or more times a year and am always looking for classmates. 

Neil Brydon, Biddeford ME. After graduating from CMHS, I went to UMO, but finished school out in Wichita, KS. I worked in the Juvenile Court System for 3 years and returned to Maine. I was a Supervisor for Maine Dept of Human Services and after working for the state for 23 years, jumped ship to working as an Insurance Investigator (good move!). I was married for 11 years, have 3 fantastic sons and a very precious granddaughter. My longtime girlfriend of 10 years, Jen Bette, passed away unexpectedly in her sleep July 11, 2009 and I miss her very much. I now spend my free time either fishing, with friends, or with my adult sons families and granddaughter. Like most of the sentiments I've read on this site, Calais will always be a part of me. My best to all. 032610

Frances Casey Holst, Alexander ME. Hi Classmates and everyone. I finally got on here. I've been married to Roger Holst (class of '66) for 25 years. We have 2 daughters, Teresa has graduated from Norwich and is in the Navy and Jenn will be in her third year at UMO this fall. I have been nursing at Calais Hospital since 1974 and think I see a light at the end of the enema bucket! Hope more people check in here although the older we get the easier it is to find us for reunions. I stay in touch with Robin and Lyn if anyone wants addresses. Looking forward to 2002, the 30th but I bet we can't top our 25th reunion. Everyone had a great time. My address is Have a great summer. Fran 

Kim Churchill Dunston. Email 11/30/09

Teresa (Clark) Cassidy. I am married to Edmund Cassidy of '73. We are living on St. Simons Island, Georgia with our three children. All the Best to You. 7/26/00 - Greetings! It has been a number of months since I last check this site. What fun to hear news of friends from the past! I am in hopes that more of the classes of '72 and '73 will respond. With reunions five years apart there is just never enough time to relax and talk. I would love to hear from other CMHS friends. Where are you???? Things continue to go well in Southeast Georgia. Ed absolutely loves his instructor position at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. It offers much more time to kick back and enjoy the beaches/boating/golf...etc. I will return to my position as school nurse for 800 kidos in the "poor inner city" part of Brunswick. Summer vacation has been great. We managed a marathon drive back to Maine for a mini vacation of several days. Ah...but it was great to be back!! Our son, Ryan, and daughter, Erin, as well as myself, will start back with college in a few weeks. I never imagined that we'd be financing 3 in college at one time!!! Our youngest daughter, Meghan, is entering her 11th grade. She is very involved with drama and the swim team here. I admire her ability to make a smooth transition from John Bapst's 450 students to Glynn Academy's 2,400 plus students. That's the latest scoop from our neck of the woods... I am hoping to hear from some of you soon. Best Regards!  

M. David Curran, Calais ME. Support our troops no matter how you feel. They are there for you, again I say you. new email 2/1/06

Rollie Hayman. I now live in Sussex, NB.  My wife's name is Dot and we have two boys. 

Michael Hill, Katy TX. It's been a long time since I've visited this website and have enjoyed the many pictures of the past. My wife and I have been foster parents for a few years adopting a little girl, Carina, who is now 4 years old giving us 5 children to date. She's a treasure. It's interesting with a granddaughter of 2 years old and a daughter of 4 years old. We're preparing for our older daughter Stephanie's wedding this coming May to a bright young man who is a programmer with Apple Computer. The short of it, we and our kids are doing very well. Will be visiting Calais the later part of May this year for my Mom's birthday. 030411

Thomas Victor Durgin, 57, died unexpectedly Tuesday March 1, 2011 at his home in Thetford. Tom was born Jan. 6, 1954 in Houlton, Maine to parents Maurice B Durgin Jr., and Rosemary (Cantlupe) Durgin and lived in Maine until 1968 when the family moved to Fairlee, Vt. Tom graduated from the first-ever class of Oxbow High School in 1972, and then from Marlboro College in Vt. Tom had a variety of careers that included working with autistic teens, writing, and editing, most recently with Human Capital Institute. Tom was a talented freelance writer, and for several years produced a weekly column for It's Classified, as well as pieces for Behind the Times that showcased his humorous observations about life. He also co-published a ski newspaper called the Cheap Skiing Guide, and found a way to make a living from his passion for skiing by working at for a few years. Tom was known for his love of the outdoors, was an avid hiker of the White Mtns, and the kind of skier who kept track of how many vertical feet he skied each season. When younger, he was a rock climber, and an adventurous skier of places like Tuckerman's Ravine. He enjoyed being on the water in all kinds of vessels, from kayaks to sailboats, and had a special affection for the Maine coast. A lover of statistics and history, Tom could rattle off facts and information about any topic, including the weather, plants, World War II, birds, and, recently, how much weight his roof was bearing due to this winter's snow. Tom was a self-proclaimed "foodie" who loved to try new recipes, and thoroughly enjoyed traveling around to "diners, drive-ins and dives" to sample the local cuisine. He and Becky shared their love of food, frequently welcoming family and friends to their home for elaborately prepared meals, and house specialties such as "donut night." Tom had a green thumb and loved to garden, and always had outstanding vegetable and flower gardens. He was a collector, by nature, who loved to browse through second-hand shops and antiques store looking for small treasures. Tom's intellect and interests made him a fascinating conversationalist who was rarely at a loss for words. Tom is survived by his mother, Rosemary, of Port Orange, Fla., sisters Anne Dall and her husband Tony of Lyme, N.H., Mary Dupont and her husband Jim and family of Port Orange, Fla., Helen Daniels and husband Don, of Plains, MT, brothers Peter Durgin and wife Claire and family of Chester, Vt., and John Durgin and wife Christy and family of Fairlee, Vt., and several nieces and nephews, as well as his beloved partner, Becky DiFranceso, of Thetford, Vt., and her sons Tim and Scott. A celebration of Tom's life will be held on April 9th. (Details to be announced at a later date.) Donations in Tom's memory may be sent to the Wells River Savings Bank, 223 Main Street, Bradford, VT 05033 and will be distributed to Tom's favorite charities.

He loved hosting gatherings and family events at the Garage Mahal and having family stay in the upstairs apartment.

He will be missed by his Toby cat that enjoyed being spun around on the bar stool and being let in and out every thirty seconds. Terry will be remembered fondly by his many nieces, nephews, cousins and their children.  An informal celebration of Terry’s life will be held on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at 2:00 at the Garage Mahal, 9 Coyote Lane in Meddybemps.
