ANNOUNCEMENTS

Golf Fundraiser Success

On July 25th, 2019 the Lions Pride fundraiser golf tournament held at Northport Golf Club, organized with the assistance of BAHS Alumni members at NGC and  the BAHS Boosters Club again this year, raised over $7000 for projects and equipment supporting our athletic programs. Financial support and team/player participation was received from classes of 1955,1966,1969,and 1980. Forty-two businesses from our school district community were the majority contributors to this fundraising event and our community can be very thankful for the school spirit they showed this (and previous) year(s). There remains plenty of room for more classes and alumni to be involved in future tournaments.  If you are interested in more information, please click on Alumni Profiles, find Jeff Dutch in the Class of 1969 amd send him a private message.  (Posted 8/9/19)

Class of 1980 40th Reunion Planning Committee

Barbara Lucas Smith has graciously stepped up and volunteered to head up a 40th Reunion Planning Committee for next summer.  Shari Halliday Seger, Eric Nilsen and Scott Patten have expressed interest in being involved in the planning process.  If any one else would be interested in helping Barbara out, please click on her Alumni Profile and send her a private message.  (Posted 8/6/19) 

New Discussion Question Posted

I have posted a new discussion question and really need members to click on the topic and give feedback.  Thank you for participating and helping this organization grow.  (Posted 8/5/19)

Lack of Poll Participation

The poll question regarding the plans for the multi-class 2020 reunion had very little response participation.  The poll was up for quite some time and practically no interest was shown.  Therefore, the alumni association will not be making any plans for a reunion in Belfast for summer 2020.  If each individual class has plans, please send them along to the contact us tab and I will post on the front page and send directed class e-mails to members.  (Posted 8/01/19)

Reunion Pictures To Share

Does any one have pictures to share from the reunions of 1968 and 1978?  Or any other recent class reunion that I could post in the picture gallery tab?  I am positive the members of other classes surrounding yours would love to see them.  Thank you.

INTEREST IN ESTABLISHING AN ALUMNI BOARD 

I am seeking individuals who might be interested in setting up the frame work for an alumni association for BAHS with a mission statement and board of directors to serve for a period of time.  The board would include members from a wide range of class years and knowledge from varied career backgrounds which would be instrumental in the implementation of an alumni scholarship, alumni hall of fame, fundraisers and annual meetings and reunions.  If you might like to participate in growing this endeavor from the ground up, please send me a message using the "contact us" tab above. Thank you. (Posted Dec. 01, 2017)  

A Beloved Teacher Passes

I am sad to learn that a beloved English teacher, Mrs. McClure has passed away.  I feel grateful that she was able to attend our multi-reunion gathering in 2010 for the Lions Club supper on Friday evening.  She glowed with an inner beauty that impacted numerous former students that were lucky enough to have sat in her class at BAHS.  Please click on her name under "Teacher Profiles" or "In Memory" tabs for additional information.

Ode and Motto of the Class of 1980

Ode: 

The class of '80 has known conflicts and struggles; But realizing that our last year had actually arrived, and soon the doors of BAHS would be closing behind us - We came together and formed a group, a union, a student body of one, still holding our ideas and feelings and still keeping our individual selves within us.  We learned to help each other and work together to achieve and accomplish all we had been striving for.  But we are not done!  Our years have just begun!  We have bigger goals waiting to be accomplished beyond these doors.  In the future, our unity will be as strong as it is today, because we will hold memories of BAHS.  (by Penny Ward) 

Motto: 

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations, I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try and follow where they lead.  

Hello Alum:  When I read the hope and excitement expressed in the commencement exercises booklet from the Class of 1980 for a future life not yet realized - it got me wondering about a few things.

  1.  Did any one realize those "bigger goals waiting to be accomplished beyond these doors [of BAHS]" mentioned in the Ode?

 2.  Were the "highest aspirations" mentioned in the Motto accomplished or are people still "believing in them and trying to follow where they lead"?  

3.  The Ode says, "In the future, our unity will be as strong as it is today, because we will hold memories of BAHS".  Has this proven to be true for the majority of BAHS Alum?  

I would like to compile stories from all BAHS Alum in order to encourage current and past students of BAHS that growing up in little Belfast, Maine can give you an excellent launching pad from which to be sent out into the wider world.  I would like to hear about your successes along with your failures, your stumbles, your false starts while on your journey, until ultimately arriving at your highest aspiration or goal.   Did your goal change along the way after gaining experience and insight?  Did you focus in like a laser beam on your dream and pursue it relentlessly with steel in your spine until accomplishing it?  "Success" means different things to different people.  Please consider sharing your unique story with fellow BAHS Alum who started out in the same place as you did all those many years ago, but took drastically different paths to their own individual "highest aspirations".  Click on the "Contact Us" tab to send your thoughts to me.  Thank you for all who choose to share.  (Posted 11/29/16)  

 

 

CROSBY HS ALUM PASSED

Crosby High School Alum from the Class of 1934 and long time Belfast school system faculty member, Hilda Weymouth Sheldon has passed away.  Please see "In Memory" tab for additional information.  Scroll all the way to the bottom where the teachers/staff memorials are listed or click on her name under the "Teacher Profiles" tab on the right.  

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.

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.

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’
