Belfast Area and Crosby High School Alumni Association Classes Of 1940 - 2013.  

 

 

 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

To the Belfast Area High School/Crosby High School community:
Please join us in making Homecoming 2014 at BAHS the best ever! Our Homecoming football game this year is Friday, October 10th at 7:00.  Come and support our Belfast Lions, see old friends and classmates, and have a fun Friday night.  BAHS and CHS Alumni get in free.  Other fans who wear royal blue get $1 off admissions.  There will be a recognition of alumni at halftime, by class.  Please put the 2014 Homecoming event on your calendar and help us celebrate. (Message From: BAHS Boosters and Student Senate)

Attention BAHS Classes of 1973 to 1982:

I am requesting feed back regarding a multi-year reunion for next summer 2015.  The class of 1975 will be celebrating their 40th reunion and the class of 1980 will be celebrating their 35th.  I thought I would include the two classes ahead (when sophomores) and the two classes behind (when seniors) so that people get to see all the folks they played sports with, did musicals with and generally saw in the halls of BAHS for three years.  Before I go to all the trouble of planning (which takes a whole year to get the details in place),  I would like to get feedback on just who might be interested in attending (numbers) and what activities they would like to participate in.  Thank you for your thoughtful responses using the "Contact Us" tab above. (Or if each individual class would prefer to plan and do their own thing, I would like to know that also.)

Verification of All New Profiles

Due to some devious people who have input ficticious information on New Profile set-ups, it has become necessary to verify each new profile with a phone call and e-mail follow-up before unrestricted access is allowed to locked-down pages.  Each new profile will have to fill in required fields so I can double check that they are indeed the graduate of BAHS that they profess to be.  Please be patient while I confirm your identity and green light you.  It is a sad statement on society that this action has to be taken, but it is for the privacy and safety of all BAHS Alumni that these new measures have to be implemented.  Also, on your personal profiles when you are setting them up, please be sure to lock them so search engines can not get access to your profile - only other members of BAHS Alumni Association who have become members of this website and have to log in first.  Thank you. (posted Tuesday, September 10, 2013)

BAHS Alumni Ball Cap Available

The Alumni Store has a royal blue ball cap with gold lettering available for a donation of $20 dollars to the BAHS Alumni Association ($15.00 donation, $5.00 mailing costs) .  "BAHS" is in block lettering and "alumni" is in cursive.  Please see the two pictures posted under the left side tab labeled "Store and Links" for an up-close view.  If interested, please send a message through the "contact us" tab at the top of the page.  If there is enough request for this item, we will expand the offerings in the future. 

(Former Superintendent of Schools - Bruce Mailloux - wearing his BAHS Alumni Ball Cap. He was a member of the 1967 Ski Team who won the Eastern Maine Class B Championship title and brought home the second banner to hang in the brand new high school gym.)

Class of 1992 Celebrating Twenty Year Reunion Summer 2012

(Center: Mary Richards Thompson (Class of 1978)

ALUMNI SWIM BLURB........By Mary Richards Thompson (Class of 1978)
 
The swimming tradition continued for a another year on the 26th of December.  Since Bob Winslow began coaching the boys team in 1973, I believe the alumni swim meet has been a fixture since 1975 or 6.  I don't remember swimming against Alumni while in high school, which ended for me in 1978.  Then it was awhile before us woman began showing up to do battle in the pool.  So what is so fun about showing up 33 years after passing through the hallowed waters of the 46 year old pool?  Well it is always nice to know that all the swimming you have done through the previous year pays off as you don't end up with your head stuck in the garbage can, the swim suit still fits, though the styles have changed, and that you can safely say that none of the alumni or the current swimmers were born when you finished your swim career at BAHS.  Seriously, showing up for all the years that I have, probably a good 25, causes me to relive those hours spent going back and forth in the pool, which don't seem that long ago.  Of course Mr. Winslow is still there as he just loves swimming.  Lastly it is good to see old swim friends as swimmers are a special bunch of people, who could swim all those yards without the ability to chat with your friends, but to talk and sing to yourself all those peaceful moments while your head is in the water.  Is this the same as your head being in the clouds????
 
So remember, every December 26th there is an event that you can attend where it doesn't matter if you finish last,  I do most years, but I can still swim the 200 and 500 freestyles, if your googles leak, you don't need to have the newest swim suit, only one of decent appearance, it is warm, and the conversation is what you make of it.  Next year it would be great to have someone come from each decade from the 1960's to the 2000's.  Quite frankly I am getting tired of being the oldest showing up and asking the swimmer next me to take it easy on me as they weren't born when I was swimming in this pool.  See you next year!!!!
 
 

Alumni Lady Lions Nip Girl Cubs

Front L - R:  Lynne (Heroux) Hahn ('82) - Coach, Traci Sheldon ('85), Amy (Dyer) Kelley ('91), Brooke Reed ('07), Brittany Cummings ('07), Brianna Webster ('08), Back L - R: Ade Hills ('09), Brittany Dyer ('09), Elizabeth Rauch ('11), Carly Emt ('11)

The Alumni Lady Lions nipped the Girl Cubs 39 - 36 in a close game on Monday evening, December 26.  With one minute to go in the final period, the BAHS Cubs sent a girl to the foul line where she sunk both shots to tie-up the score 36 - 36.  Then,  the experienced Lady Lions took the round ball to the other end of the hard wood, and with 14 seconds on the clock, let a 3 point shot fly from the corner off the finger tips of Brittany Dyer ('09), which found nothing but net!  It was an exciting, hard fought match that went right to the final buzzer.   Good game Ladies and Girls and the fans will anticipate a return to the Lion's Den next year for another exciting competition. 

 

For Additional Alumni Game pictures of both basketball and swim, please click on the left side tab labeled "Images Tell Stories".  If any one else took pictures on Dec. 26, 2011, it would be greatly appreciated if you could e-mail them to me so I could add them to the slideshow of the event.  Thank you.

Message From the Desk of Superintendent of School RSU 20:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome back alumni of Belfast Area HS.  The Belfast area and BAHS have undergone significant changes since 1975.  The high school, originally built to house approximately 400 students, is now serving 643 students grades nine through twelve.  There have been three additions to the school that include the math wing, the English wing, and the most obvious fine arts wing.  All schools in the district, with the exception of Weymouth school, have been upgraded or totally rebuilt.  With the addition of the Capt. Albert Stevens elementary school and the Troy Howard Middle School, we are no longer using Pierce School, Anderson School, Robertson School, and Crosby High School.  Most recently, we are part of a State mandated consolidation and our school district is now known as Regional School Unit #20 and encompasses all the former SAD34 towns and former SAD56 (Searsport, Frankfort, and Stockton Springs).  We cover nine towns with two high schools, two middle schools, and nine elementary schools and a total of 2600 students. 

The city of Belfast and the surrounding communities have gone through major transformations in the years since your graduation.  The loss of the poultry and sardine industry and the arrival of MBNA, Bank of America, and Athena Health has resulted in obvious changes to the area.  We enjoy a branch of the University of Maine located at the Hutchinson Center out on route 3 and Waldo County Hospital has gone through an expansion.  The Belfast Free Library has undergone a renovation and the waterfront has totally changed.  If you have not been in the area for a while, I think you will be impressed with the changes.

Letti Harvey has undertaken the job of organizing this reunion as well as establishing an alumni association.  I encourage you to support her efforts and choose to be involved.

Enjoy your time ‘home’ and take advantage of the many activities arranged for you. 

Bruce Mailloux   ‘68’

Superintendent of School

New Tab: Interviews w/ Alumni

Below is the link to the Consolidated School System (RSU #20) which includes Belfast and also a link to the Belfast Area High School's official website.  Both sites have an up-to-date calendar of events page that will keep you abreast of what is going on and maybe something will interest people enough to attend and/or support.
