All the children are working in different fields ..I am enjoying the freedom now since the children are grown and out on their own. I love travelling to different parts of Texas and learning its history. Residing here has given me an opportunity to learn bout the diversity of culture that Houston offers however I miss Maine and its laid back environment. I wish all well. NURSEYCATHY62

Chris Johnson, Calais.  Wow, sorry...didn't know this site was out there, apparently a lot of other people don't either.  I'm currently the Assistant Principal and Activities Director at Calais High School.  (You remember the one).  I've been here at CHS in one form or another since graduating from UMO in '84. The vast majority of that as US History teacher, just like was predicted on class night!!!  Have two teriffic sons, Nick who will be 12 in Feb. 03 and Logan who will be 8 in March '03.  Divorced and temporarily living in Milltown until I can sneak back into Red Beach somehow.  I'm also driving to Orono once a week in order to get a Master's Degree, which is necessary if I ever hope to be principal of the greatest school ever created, or even CHS. (Just kidding).  I'm actually chaperoning a dance as I type, how sick is that?  Drop me a line, introduce me to a slutty friend, send cash, whatever... I'm least that's what it says in the bathroom stalls.  

Rick Kearney.  Gardners, P.A. Living in central P.A. I have a wonderful 9 year old daughter in 4th grade. I have been married for 10yrs to my wife Bonnie J Kilgore. I sure would enjoy hearing from anyone in our class. I check this site weekly.:)

Paula McShane, Calais. Hi to all. I have two wonderful sons ( 4 and 13!) and am a guidance counselor at Woodland Elementary (traitor, I know!) This is a great site, I just happened upon it through a yahoo  

Ron O'Brien, Calais . That's right still here.  O'Brien's AutoCare on Main Street is still going strong (21 years now). Only difference is I talked my wife of 19 years, Cindy Lowell (Class of '79) into running the business for me so I could pursue something new.  I'm now a full-time instructor at Washington County Technical College in Calais.  We have two great teenagers (if that's possible) Danielle 16 and Matthew 13 who keep us very busy running with all their activities especially in the sports department. GO BLUE DEVILS!!  We're now those parents in stands across from "THE ZOO".  Anyone around town we would love to see you so stop by.  In the summer we can found at our cottage on Cathance Lake.  Drop us a line.

Jeff Robinson - Chicago, IL. Hey Class of 1980. Moved to Chicago in the spring of 2000 for a change of pace after living in Boston for 16yrs. I've been working as an xray tech since 1986. After 14 yrs at the Beth Israel Hosp in Boston, I work in a small outpatient clinic in downtown Chicago, it's a nice change.   Been traveling a lot, but don't make it back to Calais that often, need to work on that I think.   It would be great to hear from any of you! Came to the 20th reunion with Betsy Norton.....yes, we're still friends and probably always will be.  I've kept in touch with a few of you and also see Janet Lage on remember her don't you ?  How could you forget!  Drop a line!  

Brenda Bohanon Spear. I now live in Baring Maine and have a new email address of 2/17/18

Dan Webster, Sonora, California. Although I love my life out West, I do miss being closer to home sometimes. Comparing the weather helps me feel better~! Would enjoy hearing from any classmates! 

Andy Zebiak  Hey All, I have been in Fairfield ME for the last 24 years with my wife Donna Lutz (Teresa’s sister) and my 3 boys; Andy, Richard and Michael.  Richard graduated as a Chemical engineer from UMaine last year and is working in Indiana.  My youngest Michael is graduating as a Biomedical Engineer from Boston University in a few weeks (May 2015) and my eldest Andy is working towards his Computer Science degree at Thomas College.  My email is if there is any breaking news from the Class of 1980!
