Kathy Bartlett Spangler, Charles Town, WV. Great to check out the website. I am currently the Marketing Director for the National Recreation and Park Association outside Washington, D.C. I am married to Jim and we live beside the Shenandoah River along the Blue Ridge Mountain. I am going to be passing through Calais for the first time since 1975 on my way to Presque Isle to give the centennial commencement address and receive an honorary doctorate. I have been involved in national initiatives for physical activity and sport for the past 15 years. Jim has never been to northern Maine so it should be a treat.  

Pete Brennan - Pete Brennan – Even though I was missing 42 days the first half and 38 days of the second half of our Senior year due to some serious personal issues with the school’s schedule and mine (I liked to sleep in, and the school’s schedule interfered with my beauty rest) It must have been my stellar performance that impressed the teachers with the few days that I actually made it to school on time as I graduated with the rest of you back in 1975. I remember being told over and over again that good grades will help make you a success in life. I can now honestly say from my own personal experience this is all a lie! 10152011

Paul E. Bouchard. My graduating year would have been 1975 had I stayed in Calais. My family moved to Charlton City, MA in 1969 where I still reside today. I still have great memories of everyone who was in my class in Calais.

Mary Bryson, Kansas City, Missouri. I am a social worker working with homeless and low income people.   

Steve Clarke would have graduated in '75 had I not moved. I have two boys (17, 13) who are basketball nuts and am married 20 years now and living in Orlando FL. Would love to hear the history of grads from '75. Also, my grandmother's old house (with the "cabin") on Monroe St. is for sale. E-Mail new e-mail 01/02/04 

Jeff Demmons, Calais still. Looking for info on the class of "75" 25th reunion. Still have hair, unlike a lot of classmates at the 20th, although it is going fast. Married for 20 years to Kathy and have one daughter, Stephanie, first year student at Mount Holyoke. Willing to help with reunion., just let me know. 

Tim Driscoll, Calais ME

Deborah Finch Duke, Boothbay Harbor, ME. I was thrilled to hear about the website last weekend.... Just recently returned to the USA (from Canada) after a 24 year absence...and would LOVE to hear from friends of years past and share stories.  

Heidi Hamilton Bradford, Oak Bay NB. Hi.  

P. J. Hollingdale: It's been almost 5 years since I sang "Hail to CMHS" into Linda Sherlock's cleavage (that's where she was holding the microphone) at our 20th year reunion. I figure most of my and other class of 75'ers indiscretions that night have been forgotten or forgiven. Colson Fales and I have been working hard to plan a 25th reunion this coming summer. Would love to hear from any 75'ers that we've missed.

Dorothy Johnson I just re-located from the Boston area to Alexandria, Virginia. I am a Colonel in the Army Reserves just called back to active duty for another year and a half. I am a Family Nurse Practitioner. I've been married for 29 years and have a 9 year old son. I won't be able to make it to the re-union this summer but really enjoy reading what all my classmates have been up to. 

Bill King, Chula Vista, California. Just an update for new e-mail and with what's been happening. I would have graduated with the class of 75 but was kidnapped by my parents and relocated in Calif. My wife Dianne is a home grown Calif. girl with no desire to experience the winters in Maine. We have been married for 24 years and have a 15 year old daughter Christine. I now know the reason for the gray hair. She has a 2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and was the Junior National Champion for 2002. I work civil service for the Navy as Project Manager for the Supervisor of Shipbuilding assigned with 2 of the newest DDG's. Its been a good career giving me several around the world trips visiting some very interesting countries and experiencing incredible cultures. Would enjoy revamping some old friendships and look forward to some e-mails.   

Charlie Libby, Bailey Island ME. Would love to hear from the class of '75. 032610 

Paul "Gus" Libby. Greetings to the Class of 1975. Any truth to the rumors of a 30th reunion? Still working at Colby in the Facilities Department, still married, still no kids, just dogs and parrots. Email addy is for any information about the class of 1975 reunion.

Cathy Lord Henry. This is a great site! Like everyone else, I'm looking forward to hearing from you, and you'll be hearing from me soon. I'm living in upstate New York, on the Ontario border. mark and I met in college and have been married 18 years. We have a 13 year old daughter, Leah, and a 10 year old son, Luke. I teach phys. ed. at our small school (graduating classes of less than 70) and love it. Can't wait for our 26th. 03/04/15 

Jeffery L. McLean. Class of 1975: Really interested in getting together for our 30th. Anyone else interested, please email me.

Debbie Morrison Olsen Smith, Calais. 

Michael David Riddl I would like to know what ever became of Ray Beaulieu and Sherry Brooks. If anybody knows, please let me know at the email below. I haven't been to Calais since the 10th reunion. Anything in the works for 2010? I have two great kids 26 and 27, and a wonderful and talented grand-daughter. At 50 I decided to go to college and become a teacher so that I can influence degenerates such as we were. Any doubts about that just remember senior skip day at the Rod and Gun Club or skinny dipping at the quarry. I would love to here from any and all that are not to old to remember. Stay well and perhaps we will see one another again soon. 070408

Ed Stacey. I've lived in Cleveland, Ohio, since 1983. Currently working on my third educational degree (RN, following my buddy, Tim Driscoll). All's well. Miss Maine and all you fine folks. Take it e-z, Ed. ps. Thank you Calais, Maine, for your kind support with our loss of Irene Drotar Stacey, RN. That was a year ago. Appreciate it. Have a great Holiday and a nice millennium!
