Ken Alward. I have been living in Houston now, with about 6 million other people (what a change!) for almost 18 yrs. It snowed twice in that time and one almost lasted two days. I have been married now for 14 yrs. I have a newborn daughter (she is my pride and joy). She was born 9/01. I am currently working as the Chief Engineer at the DCH-LP in Houston. 

Cathy Cartwright, Veazie, ME.  Hello to all my old friends and classmates of Calais High! 

Catherine Fenderson Stone, Bradenton, FL. Although I officially graduated from Bangor High, CHS was where I spent the most time and have the fondest memories. I've been living in FL since 1996. I'm married to a southern charmer David Stone (those of you who met him at the reunion know what I mean). We have 2 beautiful children, Hannah 9 and Jackson 6. I work full time as a business analyst for a global IT company but my passion is photography. I'm branching out and hoping to turn my hobby into a side business. You can find me on Facebook for recent updates and I hope to see you at the next reunion!

Michelle Gillespie Brown,  Hi everyone, What a great site. Life is good. Dean and I have been married 18 years in July!! We have two boys, 15 and a freshman at CHS and a 13 year old. Time flies when you're having fun! 

Dale Grass.   I'm alive and kicking in Calais.  Tammy and I have 3 children now, Kendra is 8, Heath is 4 and the baby Reese is 3. Anyone who wants to get in touch email is

Charlie Hinkel, Old Town, ME. Hi everyone-Remember me, the new kid in town? I enrolled at CHS in 1982. It doesn't seem possible that we have been out of H.S. for twenty years. Well a lot has changed since the days at CHS. I have been married to my High School sweetheart Susan Peterpaul for 19 years. We have moved around a lot and have one child, Matt, who just left the nest and moved in with his uncle in Tennessee. I was hired at Bath Iron Works in 1987 and was employed till 1992 when we moved to East Tennessee. We moved back to Maine in 1997 and I work in Bangor as a Welder/Fabricator. My wife, Susan works as a secretary/title clerk in Brewer. I do value all your friendships even though I wasn't at CHS very long. I look forward to seeing you all at our 20th. reunion. This will be my first reunion. 

Michael Landry. I still live in Calais, ME. 

Michael Lee. I was a student in Calais until ~1974, when I was 9 we moved west to Oregon. Just stumbled across the site, checked in on the class of '83 since that would have been my class. If you remember me or what to contact me, please do so. Take care.

Bill Nelligan, Lyme, CT  

Jeri Reynolds Hill, Oak Harbor, WA. I am currently living in Washington State with my husband of 25 years, Roy Hill (class of 78). We have three children, Ashley is 24 and lives here in Oak Harbor currently working for an Investment company, Leroy is 22 and lives in Seattle, he is a full time college student and is working for a boat builder here on the Island, Felicia is 21 and lives in Vancouver WA., about 5 hours from us, she is a manager for a restaurant and will be returning to school in the fall. I have been working with Autistic children for the past 15 years and am currently a Vision Assistant/ Braille Transcriber at one of the local elementary schools working 1:1 with an Autistic/Blind student. Roy retired from the Navy after 26 years of Service, and is the Electrical Supervisor for a local Boat building company. We thought that we might retire in Maine but we just recently had our dream home built on 5 acres. We will eventually get back to Calais but until then we look forward to hearing from any of you... please write. 072708
