Jodianne Morrell Anderson.  I am wondering why nobody from the class of '97 has posted yet.  Since nobody wants to be the first, I will do it.  I am living in Markham, Il just a few miles south of Chicago.  I am married and have been for seven years now.  I work and go to college.  I will be a pharmacy technician by next summer.  After that I will be going into radiologic technology and then into MRI's and polysomnography.  If anyone from the class of '97 reads this and is interested in doing so, here is my contact info: or

Arthur Nielsen. Hello, everyone.  It's amazing that so few people from our class have come to this website.  I guess we're all just too busy.  I am interested in getting back in touch with anyone from our class.  A lot of things have changed in my life.  For one thing, I've been out in the real world for almost ten years now, and I've changed a lot.  I spent two years in Mexico on a Church mission, and then, when I got back, neither my parents nor I had any money for me to keep going to college.  So I joined the Navy, even I had never even considered joining the military before.  Well, it turns out I'm not quite the military type.  I've moved around a bit, first South Carolina, and then New York, Georgia, and now Washington state.  Right now I live a ferry ride away from Seattle, and I love it here.  It's kind of like Maine, except instead of freezing temperatures and snow in the winter, we get rain; and instead of mosquitoes and blackflies in the summer we get paradise.  I agree with Kevin about the winters in the south, but I found the summer there unbearable.  For my job, I've been working on a submarine operating a nuclear reactor, but it's not quite what I ever saw myself doing.  I'm getting out soon and I'm going to finish school.  I want to teach English, first at high school and then eventually at a university.  If anyone wants to get in touch, my email address is   I hope to see more of you here. 


Raymond Durrell. North Pole, AK and Calais – Raymond Allen Durrell, 36, slipped into heaven on August 12, 2015, as the result of an auto accident. Raym was born in Calais, ME, on June 6, 1979, the third son of Phillip and Karen (Dodge) Durell of Calais, ME. Raym graduated from Calais High School, Class of 1997, and from Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, FL with a degree in criminal justice in 1999. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 2000, serving over 10 years in active duty, initially as an airplane crew chief, and later in computers, before he was “riffed”. Following his service, he attended University of Alaska in Fairbanks where he studied civil engineering. Raym married his high school sweetheart, Michelle Marie Smith, daughter of David and Patricia (Quartermain) Smith of St. Stephen, on July 20, 2002. Together they lived in Utah, Virginia, and Alaska. Raym was employed at the United States Postal Service in North Pole, AK. Raym loved the outdoors, anything woodsy. He thought Maine was great but Alaska threw him for a loop! WOW! – Beyond Great!  Raym had been home to Maine for his parent’s 50th wedding anniversary and was returning to his home in Alaska when God called him home. Raym is survived by his loving wife of 13 years, Michelle; three sons, Phillip David, Gabriel Hunter, and Samuel James, all of North Pole, AK; his parents Phillip and Karen Durell of Calais, ME; two brothers, Phillip Reed II and companion Gail Durgin of Hollis, ME, and Howard Arthur and wife Danielle of Martinez, GA; four aunts; four uncles; several cousins; three nephews, Steven Phillip of Germany, Jack Darius and Logan Marius of GA; and brothers and sisters in Christ of Moose Creek Baptist Church in Alaska, and Church of the Open Bible in Alexander, ME. A local celebration of Raym’s life will be held at a later date. Services in Alaska will be under the direction of Fairbanks Funeral Home. Local arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
