ANNOUNCEMENTS

Volunteers Needed for Booster Golf Fundraiser

The Annual Lions' Pride Golf Classic is next Friday, August 8th at the Northport Golf Club.  We are in need of bodies to help out at the event.  If you are able to volunteer, please let us know ASAP.  (Contact Martha Kulikowski, Class of 1983 or Terry Whitney, Class of 1969.)   Also, an additional "Thank You" goes out to the Class of 1971 and Skip Brown (Class of 1969) who responded to our earlier request for donations and chose to contribute to the cause.  Terry Whitney states, "We are up 9 sponsors over last year and have maxed out on teams."  Way to go BAHS and CHS Alum!!  Thanks again for your big hearts and your willingness to participate for the benefit of your old alma mater. 

 

Class of 1973 40th Reunion Picture Summer of 2013

Those in attendance were:  Randy Philbrook, Rebeca Clark, Gloria Whitcomb, Bernie Chandler, Debbie Oxton, Debbie Nickerson, Rose Rummey, Sue Wieman, Skip Philbrook, Lee Woodward, Thrulow Ward, Tina Brown, Cindy Paul, Kris Clark, Maggie Merrifield, Mike Chaples, Bob Staples, Ed Keating, Robert Proulx , Walter Riley, Denise Thruber, Scott Maclead, Les Herbig, Marcia Buck, and Diane Oxton.

Thank you Everyone for Your Generosity

A big "Thank You" goes out to the Class of 1951, '66, '74, '79, and '80 - along with BAHS and Crosby High School members who have generously become a hole sponsor ($150) for the Lion's Pride Golf Classic Fundraiser for the Boosters.  Many thanks are extended to the  local businesses in Belfast and the surrounding area who have also stepped up to be a sponsor.  Quite a few of those companies are owned and run by BAHS and Crosby HS alumni.  Time is fast slipping away and more hole sponsors, donations or gifts would certainly help.  If any alumnus as a business, an individual or as a class would consider contributing to make this golf fundraiser even more successful than last year - it would be greatly appreciated by the current students of Belfast Area High School who will benefit from your generosity.  Please click on Terry Whitney's profile under the alumni tab if you can participate in any way.  May our Lion's Pride live on forever - Go Blue and Gold!! Thank you. 
 

Class of 1974 Plans 40th Reunion

Plans for our 40th class reunion have been made for July 19th, 2014We have settled on an event schedule! 1PM - 3PM Meet at Belfast Boat House, listen to Celtic Festival Music. 3PM - 6PM On your own, visit friends 6PM - 9PM BBQ at Jayne's house.

Hope to see you there.  If you need directions, please click on profiles, select class of 1974 and then, send a private message to Jayne Crosby Giles. 

 

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)

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.

Candy L. (Harvey) Murphy from the Class of 1972 passed away on February 06, 2012 at the age of 57 years.  Please click on "In Memory" tab for additional information. 

Sad News

I am sad to report that our beloved, long-time secretary at BAHS, Dot Robertson passed away on Thursday night, October 6th, 2011.  For further information, please send a private message to Rhonda Robertson under the class of 1981.   Dot was a special lady who enhanced the high school years experience for many students with her ready smile and sense of fun.  She will be greatly missed. 

SAD NEWS of PASSING

Additional sad news: Harvey King, retired History Teacher from BAHS passed away a week after Mr. Halliday. 

Harold "Hal" E. Halliday - coach, physical education teacher, and BAHS AD passed away on May 2, 2011.  Please click on the "In Memory" tab at the top of page and post your thoughts, comments, and memories.  This man invested 30 years of his life into the students of BAHS and I'm sure his children who are BAHS Alumni too, would love to read stories about how their Dad touched the lives of others in a significant way.

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

Individual Class Reunion Plans

If any individual BAHS Alumni classes are planning reunions for next year, please use the "contact us" tab and the pertinent information will be posted here on the announcement page, plus e-mail notifications will be sent out to the class members who have added their profiles and joined the BAHS Alumni Association website. 

After planning and executing the BAHS  Seven Class Reunion ('75-'81), my advice is to start the process at least a year in advance.  For most businesses and venues, reservations need to be scheduled and added to their calendars a year in advance. 

New Tab: Interviews w/ Alumni

A new tab has been added to the BAHS Alumni Association website: "Interviews W/ Alumni".  Three BAHS graduate interviews have been posted: Allen Holmes '66 - the Alumni Service Award winner for 2010, Richard Cilley '77 - retired Military Veteran, and Gregory Shute '78 - Wilderness Program Director for The Chewonki Foundation in Wiscassett.  This will be an on-going feature which will highlight a wide range of careers and situations.  Please take a few minutes and check it out.  Also, suggestions regarding interesting and willing interview subjects would be appreciated.
