I want to wish all the recent Morrill graduates from Belfast Area High School the very best. I’m not sure exactly who has graduated, so please be sure to send me an email or give me a call and let me know about your recent graduate and their plans for the fall. One parent, Tony Swebilius, sent me an email letting me know that his daughter, Maria graduated. He and Maria’s mother, Terri Swebilius of Belfast, are very excited about Maria being named valedictorian of her graduating class. He also said that Maria is planning on taking a gap year and doing community work with City Year in Manchester, New Hampshire, where she will be working with students that need extra help. The following year she will be attending Vanderbilt University to study neuroscience and bio-physics.
It is my understanding that Dean and Nancy Jackson both received moose permit this year, as did Cliff Littlefield. I haven’t heard of anyone else at this point, but it looks like the Jackson family may be eating a lot of moose meat during the next year. Nancy was already trying to find some more freezer room in preparation for the big event. Hopefully the hunt goes well.
The benefit supper that was held for Bruce Farrar on June 15 was a great success. An added bonus to the event was that Bruce was feeling well enough to attend the dinner for quite a bit of the time. I wish I could mention all the names of the people that gave so much of their time to help with food preparation, serving, and cleaning (both before and after the dinner), but I’m afraid that I would offend someone by forgetting a name or two. So I will just say that there were so many very generous people that gave of their time and their money and I know that it was so very, very appreciated.
