HEADMASTER’S CORNER

The start of the school year stirs up both memories and excitement as yet another group of eager and mostly excited young people gather for the first time to make their tentative way around our campus. Several years ago we changed the start of school to offer a day just for the newcomers so that they might be less overwhelmed by the strangeness of our campus setting and the 19 varied buildings between which they would soon learn to find their way. These inaugural moments of fresh experience are etched forever in most people’s minds, later seen as the turning point of a new leaf in a life that is, for them, just now gaining speed. Four years is both a lifetime and the blink of an eye, though, of course, they do not know this yet. For those of us who witness this transformation, year after year, it is still a thrill to behold. This fall also marks the start of my 20th year as your Headmaster, working in a school that is proudly beginning its 221st year. It is at once humbling to consider that my years among you constitute but oneeleventh of the Academy’s long history, a perspective balanced only by Mr. and Mrs. LaCasce’s remarkable and celebrated 33 years. This is a school that is both steeped in history while not being wedded to it, thus affording endless opportunity for growth and change in our curriculum and programming that keep us forever ahead of the educational curve. We still excel in the teaching of industrial arts while offering four years of Mandarin. We are exploring a local farm-to-table curriculum at the same time as we offer more than 14 advanced placement courses. And almost everyone who graduates from the Academy goes on to some form of higher education. The Academy is a remarkable school and it will continue to be so as long as we have our independence and, therefore, the freedom to be the best that we can be. Dan Lee, Headmaster, Fryeburg Academy

Not a school to rest for long on its laurels, the glowing 2011 Ten-Year re-accreditation report from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) has given us the courage and momentum to continue to grow and build. Over the next few years, private donations will help us build another faculty housing unit onto Payson-Mulford dorm; they will help us complete the athletic field project on the south end of campus; they will enable us to provide tennis courts, and add classrooms, and at last, renovate or replace the aging Alumni House. In not too many years a new cafeteria and student center will come on line, completing our major building program which began in 1995 with the Eastman Science Center. In less than twenty years, thanks to many of you, the campus will have been truly transformed.

Headmaster Dan Lee visits with Ameeth Deenanath ‘94 in Boston

So I close with these words of gratitude to all of you who in one way or another enable us to offer, year after year, such an extraordinary educational experience to young people from around the region and from all over the world. Watching the sea of faces assemble on campus today reminds me that our work is both important and noble, and that it is those of us who have chosen the education of young people as our career path who have the best jobs of all. Every fall we welcome a new batch of students and every spring we pass another, older and wiser group along to face the world. Thankfully, and with our utmost gratitude to all of you, they will always be well prepared, indeed. Dan Lee

FA TRUSTEES

And The Search Is on…by now, most of you are aware that Dan Lee, FA’s Headmaster for nearly two decades, has announced his intention to retire from that position next June, at the end of the coming school year. Under Dan’s leadership, the Academy has grown and thrived as an educational institution and as an atmosphere allowing teenagers to grow into solid, young adulthood. By the time he leaves, something in the neighborhood of 3,000 students will have moved through our school, ready to pursue further education or jobs with a Fryeburg Academy diploma in hand. There will be ample time to thank Dan for all that he has achieved, over his long tenure. In the meantime, Job #1 is to find and hire THE correct person as his successor and have that person ready to don the harness, not later than next July 1. Members of our search committee, chaired by Chris Gordon ‘81, have all recently spent the better part of a week in homework mode, studying the thirty applications and resumes that had been compiled by our search consultant, Gregory Floyd, of Floyd Associates. Our group then met on the Academy campus and selected six of the thirty, who will be invited to meet with us for personal interviews during the month of September. To date, applications selected for initial committee review by our consultant have come from 20 states. I must say that this first group is impressive, and our search committee is looking forward to personal interview opportunities with our first selections. Will our next Head of School be among those who will be interviewed next month? That could be, but, if not, we’re early in the game and have time to search further. The search committee’s ultimate task is to find an enthusiastic, qualified, experienced person who, with all of those qualities is, most importantly, the best fitted for Fryeburg Academy, its students, faculty and alumni and tradition. The committee must also be confident our new Head is the one best qualified to shape the school’s future.

A.O. Pike IV ‘57 FA’s President of the Board of Trustees

Fryeburg Academy will have a new Head of School. When students arrive for the school year beginning in September 2013, change is also a regular event affecting the Academy’s Board of Trustees. Most of these fine folks who serve on our board are alumni, but not all. Currently, there are 19 men and women serving actively, two of whom did not attend Fryeburg. However, both of our non-Fryeburg grads have had children graduate from our school. Diversity among our trustee complement has become important, as many Academy graduates now find employment throughout the USA and are, increasingly, living throughout the world. We have been a small, proud New England school for over two centuries, but change has again had its effects, and we must now think of Fryeburg Academy as still a part of New England, but our graduates are spreading throughout the entire planet! This year, I’m proud to be able to say that Punyu Ho ‘95 has become the first person of foreign birth to return to our school as a trustee. He lives in Chicago and also has a residence and business in Beijing, China. In another issue of Scenes, we’ll highlight more trustees. These are the men and women who provide governance for Fryeburg Academy, and they bear full responsibility for overseeing and maintaining its financial health, vitality, direction and growth. I’m personally proud to be a member of that body…and I truly believe every other trustee feels the same. But now, back to our original theme: Change is always occurring. Heads of School arrive, make their mark, then leave, most having achieved their goals. Teachers arrive, ready our students for the next step in education; students come to the Academy as adolescents and leave as young adults, ready to move on in the world, even shaping it. Change is a constant (now there IS an oxymoron…but this one works)! Especially after a long period of growth and achievement, the thought of a shift in the gears of leadership can be unsettling. My take on this is that change is going to happen, much of that nudged by external forces. The economy, the fact that American families are producing fewer children to fill our classrooms, even the political situation here in the U.S. and in other countries which are the source of our international student entries. However, change can also be for the good and can actually present opportunities that result in the Academy becoming an even better school, as it moves proactively to meet and address various new opportunities. My own assessment of our school is that we have never been in better overall condition from the standpoint of faculty quality, curriculum, college acceptance of our graduates, physical plant and the financial readiness to meet nearly any imaginable new situations. I believe that, particularly with the help of alumni and friends, the next couple of decades can make Fryeburg Academy even better than the excellent institution that it is now known to be. And much of the Academy’s ability to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by change will be provided by Heads of School, faculty members, students, alumni, staff and friends of our institution…all of them will, of course arrive, go to work, achieve goals and eventually leave, and Fryeburg Academy will have become a better school for the time spent with us all.

PUBLIC RELATIONS & ANNUAL GIVING Dear Alums & Friends of FA - You’ll notice that this issue of Scenes is bigger, with a new binding process because it’s too big for the old spine staple! Thanks to Headmaster Dan Lee, who said “let’s make the photos bigger with more pages!” We graduated the Class of 2012 on May 27th and welcomed students back on September 6th. Time marches on! Always hard to say goodbye to graduates after four years together. My message is always the same to students - carry your FA relationships and experiences with you and they will carry you. FA is a big part of each of our personal histories...and it’s forever. Nothing drives this point home better than Reunion. My favorite part is being around those who haven’t been together for years. It’s that moment when they see each other for the first time since being an FA stuRachel Andrews Damon ‘76, FA’s Director of Public Relations & Annual Giving, in Boston dent - the moment that takes each one of us with Kate Whitaker ‘05, Ashley Holmes ‘05 & Justine Lathrop ‘05 and makes us 17 again! I can’t champion enough the idea of coming back to see your classmates and this school. It perks us up, soothes the soul and fills our hearts! It’s coming home again. As always, if you’re in town during any other time of the year besides Reunion, please stop by the Alumni & Development Office at FA. You are always welcome. We are open for your visits. And in closing, thank you for your support of your old school. With each donation received, students continue to prosper by you paying it forward. You have my sincere gratitude for your investment in Fryeburg Academy and the future of this school. Always a Raider - Rachel Andrews Damon ‘76 Key to Cover Photos - Scenes - Fall 2012 Front Cover - Photo by Michael Dana-FA Faculty (Photo & Film) - Michael says, “The camera lens of an iPad digital tablet views the entrance to the Main Building from a perch in the stately Red Maple tree that has been growing alongside the Academy since the early 1850’s. The image suggests the current place on the Academy’s long timeline that connects its rich past and ties to tradition with a rapidly changing world of technology in education. It is a view into the future of the continued legacy of excellence in teaching at Fryeburg Academy.” Michael Dana moved with his family from NY to Fryeburg in 2004 after a rewarding 20-year career as a cinematographer in the motion picture industry working on feature films and national ad campaigns. In 2006 he ran into Headmaster Dan Lee at the post office in town and offered to introduce a filmmaking course at Fryeburg Academy at some time in the future. In 2008 Mike was originally hired to teach photography and start building the new Fryeburg Academy Film Workshop that continues today. Currently there are over sixty FA student films, and episodes from FATV News (another new media class), which is online and viewable from a link on the FA website - www.fryeburgacademy.org.

NOTES & COMMENT FROM ALUMNI HOUSE With reunion coming so early in the summer, we have all felt a sea change sweep over the alumni and development office, the first of what we anticipate will be many large and small changes over the coming year. For most of us, simply having time for a warm-weather vacation was a treat, and it also allowed us unfettered time to visit and connect with alumni, near and far, at a summer pace. Absent the looming activity of a late-August reunion, we have each had time to clean desks, complete projects, and make plans for the new school, and giving, year with a renewed abundance of enthusiasm and energy. This all comes just in time. A year from now we will be settling in with a new headmaster after enjoying twenty remarkable years with Dan Lee at the helm. The school is in such a different place than when he and Susie arrived in 1993 and as it was with Mr. and Mrs. LaCasce, theirs, too, will be hard shoes to fill. No one anticipates that this transition will be simple or easy, and, as with any leadership change, we will all be learning about how things may be different. What won’t change, however, will be our fundamental goal to do whatever we can to make this 221-year-old institution stronger in every way. In this sense, my past 14 years in your midst may have just been a warm-up exercise for what is still to come. This summer, the Trustees met to review and set priorities for capital projects for the next five to ten years. It is at once thrilling to remember and Tim Scott, FA’s Director of Development celebrate how far we have come, and it is equally humbling to consider how much important work lies ahead. Of course, the list of projects never really grows shorter, for as we make improvements we also raise the bar of expectation both for our students and members of the communities for whom the Academy remains a busy hub of year-round activity. The list of new buildings, fields, and programs would have intimidated us even ten years ago, yet the lessons of our annual and capital campaigns have presented us with the belief that all of you really do love your school. We thank you for what you have done, and for what you will help us do in the coming years. At the top of the list is completing the athletic fields to the south of campus. Several years ago we purchased the land and we have been working, as time and money and the great efforts of the Maine National Guard allow, readying these fields for future use. Next, we know that demographic changes are leading us to grow the boarding populations and a second dorm addition in the form of faculty housing is slated for the summer of 2013. The 2011 addition to Hastings Hall has set a new standard for what dorm life should be and it is essential that all of the dorms and faculty housing units be of an equal standard. We also have to do something about Alumni House which is the most tired facility on campus. Once renovated, it could become the true “welcome center” that is envisioned in the master plan. And, looking forward to the probability of ever-increasing energy costs, we are seriously considering installing a biomass furnace to supply campus heating, thus moving us away from oil and toward the renewable resources that abound in Maine. These are all ideas for which the time has come. I hope you will join in the conversations over the coming year, both about the Head Search and about the work we all will do together. Thank you, as always, for all that you do to help us succeed. Tim Scott, FA’s Director of Development

ALUMNI DIRECTOR Every time I sit down to write this portion of the Scenes magazine, I try to come up with a theme, or a great speech to catch everyone’s attention. Then, when it is all said and done, Abe Lincoln, I am not. So you won’t be getting the Gettysburg Address in this issue. You won’t even get my home address either. So what am I going to write that will interest you enough to continue past this next sentence……? I am going to write about FRIEND Raising! Everybody has friends, but you can never have enough. Working in the Alumni office at Fryeburg Academy has given me a chance to meet hundreds of people who otherwise I would never have met. Some stop into the office, some call, some Todd Gallagher ‘82-FA’s Director of Alumni with Silvia Siklosi write and others I meet during visits and gatherings. No matter Chandler ‘82, Carlos Hernandez ‘82 & Tim Chandler ‘82 where or how we meet, each and every one of them has a story to tell; as do you, the reader of this article. I have had the privilege of listening to these stories and seeing the joy on people’s faces as they tell them. They go back in time and remember details and classmates and visit a moment that has been etched in their minds forever. I love hearing each person’s take on the Academy. Then they ask about what is going on now and what has changed at the school and suddenly the two worlds are connected. Friend Raising has a warm, personal touch that puts everyone on a level playing field. It does not matter where you went to college, or even if you went to college. It does not matter if you have a family or you are single. It does not matter if you are younger or older; each story is worth the same value, priceless. More often than not, there is a common person or action that comes out of the stories that brings us all together. Having had relatives who attended the Academy throughout the years, I can relate to many of their stories as well. Another great way to Friend Raise is to bring special interest groups back together. For example, classes, teams, groups and clubs. Throughout the years we have had a number of State Championship teams in various sports and extra-curricular activities. We have honored a few of these groups, but I would very much like to honor many more of them. It usually starts with a member of one of these groups to come in with an idea of getting the members together again. That is where I come in and we brainstorm how we can make all this happen. So to anybody out there who falls into this category and who thinks they might like to reunite with those fellow group members, give me a call and we can get started. Many of you already take the time to visit, have a cup of coffee, chew the fat and just be interested in what is going on. It is difficult to do this from afar. It takes a special effort to contact the school or anybody working here if you are out of town or state. We have tried over the years to go to areas of the country that have multiple alums in relatively close vicinity. We have gathered at alums’ homes, at hotels, sporting venues or local tourist attractions. We try to do this so you don’t have to travel all the way back to the “BURG” to find out what is going on. Trying to pick a time that suits everybody can be a nightmare. It is because of this that I enjoy the one-on-one visits that I have had over this last year. To sit down in an alum’s home, share a beverage, enjoy lunch, play a round of golf or to experience an integral part of their life, is a fabulous tool for raising a friend. I especially enjoy meeting a new alum and getting to know his or her memories of Fryeburg Academy. This past year I had the privilege of having conversations with: Kinley Roby ‘47, who told me how he became an author; Frank Joyal ‘66, who told me about his days in the Baltimore Orioles organization as a catcher; Peter Clifford ‘64, Bob Mitchell ‘64 and Ronnie Colter ‘64 who all told their tales of the 1963 State Championship football season; Dan O’Neil ‘82 who is without a doubt the biggest Fighting Irish fan alive; Stuart Hess ‘71, who organized our Rhode Island gathering; Kurt Ela ‘96, who took me on a tour of Los Angeles that ended with a $22.00 hamburger; Clayton ‘47 and Gloria Horne Burnell ‘49, who allowed me to look through all their memorabilia from their days at the Academy; Wilber Hammond ‘61 and Steve DiBiaso ‘61, who kept me in stitches during our dinner at Fish Bones; Lefty Homans ‘46, who was nice enough to bury me on the golf course but then let me set up his new GPS; Makenzi Brown ‘10, who showed me the famous corner of Haight/Ashbury streets in San Francisco; and Malcolm Clark ‘42, who showed me a scrapbook full of pictures and autographs of professional athletes he has known throughout the years. This is just a small sampling of folks with whom I had the pleasure of seeing and sharing time with. Each visit was special and meaningful in its own way. No two were the same and yet they all had something in common. When each visit was done I received a smile, a handshake or a hug and a request to keep in touch. The rekindling of emotions and memories of time spent at the Academy really does bring joy to people’s hearts. Once this emotion is stirred people have a tendency to keep it alive by reconnecting with classmates or the school. If a reconnection is made, then my job is done. And to think, it all started with a simple conversation and ended with the making of a new friend or remembrance of an old friend. So that’s it folks, that’s my speech. Let’s all reconnect with someone we have not seen in years. One of the best ways to do that is right here through my office. Give me a call and I will come visit you and fill you in on what is going on here at school and update you on your classmates and friends if I can. You can never have enough friends!!! (I would like to dedicate this article to the memory of Phyllis Walker Chandler ‘47, my new friend who left us just prior to this year’s reunion. We all need to learn a lot from the way she lived life. I will miss you my friend, greatly.)

DIRECTOR OF GIFT PLANNING

Dear Alums, The invitation to this year’s LaCasce Dinner has been mailed and responses are arriving every day. The date is October 19, 5:00 p.m., in the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center. There will be a performance in the auditorium following a dinner that will feature members of Wheaton College Conservatory of Music. If you haven’t responded, please do so at your earliest convenience. This program, which began as a luncheon in 2004, is now celebrating its ninth year. The remarkable thing is that during this time the number of LaCasce Bequest Society members has grown from 19 to Peter Klomp, FA’s Director of Gift Planning with Ting Ting Zhao, 87! FA Faculty (Mandarin) The LaCasce Bequest Society is a recognition society for those who have provided for Fryeburg Academy through wills, charitable gift annuities and other estate gifts. Some members have designated the Academy as a beneficiary of their life insurance or retirement assets. Members of the LaCasce Society are recognized by name on a wall plaque which hangs in the stairwell of Fryeburg Academy’s Main building. There are 13 spaces remaining to reach 100 and complete this beautiful plaque. Please consider becoming a member of this esteemed society and honoring “Mr.” and “Mrs.” LaCasce. By joining, you are also helping to build upon the legacy of Fryeburg Academy and ensure that we will be around for the next 200 years. It will be my pleasure to meet with you in person for a confidential inquiry or I would welcome a phone call to talk with you for a few minutes about how you can help to protect the future of your family while often helping to maintain the traditions of the past. In November I will be traveling to China where I will meet with Punyu Ho ’95, a recent addition to our Board of Trustees. We will meet with parents of our students in Hong Kong/Shenzhen, Shanghai, Dalian and Beijing. An additional visit may be made to Seoul or Tokyo to meet with parents and alumni in those cities. This will be my second visit to China and I am looking forward to sharing the experience in the company of one of our alumni. Punyu can speak to parents in their own language, which makes our presentation even more valuable. Mr. Ho is from Beijing and Chicago and has his own company, Wabash Investments. Punyu visited these same cities in China last year and met with our Chinese parents to talk about College Education in the United States, as well as the importance of Fryeburg Academy in their children’s lives. It will be our pleasure again while we’re in China to meet with as many parents as possible. One of our goals is to determine if there is an interest in having Fryeburg Academy offer additional programs designed to teach English as a second language. The purpose of which is to increase our students score in their required TOEFL (the Test of English as a Foreign Language) exam. This is the world’s most common requirement for college and university admissions. Peter Klomp, FA’s Director of Gift Planning The 2012-2013 exhibition season has begun at the Pace Galleries. Our first installation will be Apple Of My Eye. The Fryeburg area was once filled with orchards that provided apples for America’s kitchens. The approach of fall and the opening of Fryeburg Fair remind us it is again apple season. Over 60 paintings and objects dating from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century will delight viewers who love apple season from first blooms to harvest time. The collection is on loan from the same generous collectors who lent us the White Mountain show a few years ago. January will open with a three-person exhibition of Maine painters. Leisa Socor challenges us to see everyday small objects in giant paintings, especially well known are her giant spools of thread. Ann Monkhern will exhibit bright summer coastal scenes (just what we need in mid-winter) and Andre Laporte will provide us a small retrospective of his life in art. The spring will bring two exhibits. First will be a selection of early WPA oils and later abstract pieces, all works from the estate of the late Mark Baum of Ogunquit. The Baum show will conclude in May to be followed by almost 40 works that have been generously donated to the Academy by Helen Nadler in honor of her late husband, Harry Nadler, a college art educator. The Nadler gift is most exceptional in that Helen has specified the work be hung throughout the campus and offices. Donations to the Academy collection have grown through generous donations of oils by B. T. Newman, the Mark Baum family, and monetary donations from the Goldberg Foundation and other friends of the Gallery. In the next few years I hope to show art from the rich and diverse regional artists who live in the White Mountain Valley and work in many genres. Finally, another long-term goal is to call upon alumni who have fine works of art to exhibit them in a show titled Alumni Collect. John Day ‘67, Director-Pace Galleries of Art

ARCHIVES

Fryeburg Academy was very fortunate to have Marc Stowbridge teach a class in Astronomy during our May term this year. Marc is a recently retired family therapist, with an education background, and he has been working with the New Hampshire Astronomical Society since 1999. He was instrumental in developing the “Library Telescope Program”, placing telescopes into public libraries, where they can be checked out, like a book. While at FA this past May, Marc discovered the B.W. Tinker Barbara Hill ‘74, FA Archivist telescope and took the initiative to clean and repair the telescope, taking the parts home to clean and polish, and he also generously donated a zoom eye piece to finish the cleaning and restoration process, as the original could not be located. Berlin W. Tinker was a generous benefactor to Fryeburg Academy and served as trustee from 1923-1954.

Tinker Telescope at Fryeburg Academy

The telescope is a handmade, one-of-a-kind, 4-inch refractor telescope on a German equatorial mount, its length quite remarkable by today’s standards. The mount allows you to track celestial bodies by turning one long control handle. The Tinker telescope was made, according to the plaque on the telescope, by the pupils of Leavenworth High School, in Westbury, CT, and presented to Mr. Tinker sometime in the 1920’s. It has two specially designed lenses in the front instead of just one that corrects color aberrations.

This design gives you a clear image without a halo effect. In the October 1962 Fryeburg Bulletin, the following describes the use of the Tinker telescope, in reference to the dedication of the Science Building addition to the Main building: “Rising from the top floor is a stairway access to the roof platform so that the provisions of the Will of Mr. Berlin W. Tinker shall be carried out. Mr. Tinker had a strong interest in astronomy and bequeathed funds to promote study of the stars through his telescope which he has donated to the Academy.” Fryeburg Academy plans to put the telescope on display in the near future and to utilize the telescope for teaching purposes. The Archives gratefully acknowledges donations from the following alumni, staff and friends: David Jillson ‘74, Michael Davis ‘13, Sylvia Sawyer Sebalist ‘61, Emily Dore Fletcher ‘57, Michelle Andrews Clark ‘88, Lesley Gouin ‘75, Dot Whitney (widow of Paul Whitney ‘62), Jim Thurston-FA Dean of Day Students, Estelle Weeks Wellman (daughter of DeForest Weeks 1907) & Oliveanne Kimball-Scott ‘50.

FA ALUMNI ASSOCIATION Dear Alumni and Friends: What a wonderful and busy year the Fryeburg Academy Alumni Association encountered! This 18-member board worked hard with the very best interest of Fryeburg Academy and our 7,000+ strong Alumni! At the beginning of 2012, the Association welcomed Melissa Duffy Anderson from Duffy Anderson Financial as guest speaker; started discussion of our first-ever Golf Ball Drop fundraising event and the March Annual Family Social and Ski event at Shawnee Peak; sent out requests for faculty awards, graduating senior alumni scholarships and book awards; ordered senior gifts; worked on details for June Reunion and started our own budget process. The Alumni Association proudly made several faculty donations and monetary donations to every Fryeburg Academy state champion team in sports, performing arts and academics. The FAAA also made donations to Bo Apt ‘04, Gregg Sanborn ‘84, Project Graduation, and Fryeburg Academy. Congratulations and best wishes to all. The March Annual Family Social and Ski Event brought approximately 100 alums, family & friends for an evening of fun, food, relaxation, laughter, music and skiing. Thank you to the gifted alumni musicians who once again entertained the crowd throughout the evening. If you have not yet attended this event, please mark your calendar for Friday, March 1st, 2013. It’s a night of Fryeburg Academy Alumni memories being made! Reunion brought many returning alums back to our beautiful campus for the first time in 5, 10, 15, 20….even 50 years! The Alumni Association was pleased to give morning tours of our newest campus buildings to many returning classmates. Of course, the delicious banquet is always appreciated – thanks to Alan Whitaker ‘77 and his staff. We proudly honored Bruce Smith ‘67, the 2012 Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award. FAAA thanks the hundreds of alum, community members, friends of Fryeburg Academy and total strangers who purchased tickets to the Golf Ball Drop! What a fun event and one to be continued for years to come. A special thank you to Ned Sullivan who donated his time, pilot expertise and helicopter to drop over 500 golf balls onto FA’s football field. And to the Association and their children for picking up the balls! We awarded three cash prizes to Lewis Bartlett ‘78; Gary Mayo-friend of FA; and Tate Gordon, son of Chris Gordon ‘81. At this time, we would like to thank Dennis Emery ‘44 (dec.) and family, Melissa Duffy, Bruce Smith ‘67, Gary Mayo, Cardinal Printing & Jim Stacy ‘72 and many others who donated to the Alumni Association this year. Without your help, many of the above awards and donations could not continue to happen. Your Association has been an organization since June 11, 1889, and we look forward to this next year! Warmest regards to all, Kelly Bell Lloyd ‘78-President At Reunion 2012, the FA Alumni Association had a fundraiser called The Golf Ball Drop - whichever ball dropped closest to the target from a helicopter (the ball drop thanks to pilot Ned Sullivan) - the winner of $1,000 was Lewis Bartlett ‘78; Photo below - Members of the Fryeburg Academy Alumni Association - Jenn Stacy Bartlett ‘93, Makenzie Walker ‘06, Paige Fox ‘82, Kelly Bell Lloyd ‘78, Jim Osgood II ‘85, Barbara Gushee ‘84, Ned Sullivan, Scott Lovejoy ‘77, Ronald Sanborn ‘64, Chris Dutton ‘90, David Miller ‘84 & Heidi Blake ‘82

MR. KELLY’S COLUMN

Teacher…Coach… Alumni Coordinator every new day has a wee bit of joy to it after fifty-four years of Academy campus life! For instance, the “Annual Giving” thank-you telephone calls or emails provide great remembrance stories from alums and how their experiences at the Academy helped change them, as well as turn their lives around. The outpouring of goodwill given back to them (alums, parents) through our kindness and openhearted conversations are proof of gratitude well received and freely given back with the Academy spirit. A fine example came from an alum, a member of the Class of 1947…an anonymous gift to reach the class goal of $1,500.00 to purchase a theater seat in the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center to commemorate their 1947 reunion gift. This prompted another spiritual gift of a theater seat in memory of Phyllis Walker Chandler ‘47, who passed away a few days before the muchanticipated FA alumni weekend in June. Such random acts of kindness continue to prevail; for instance, the get-well campaign by Kenneth ‘Tinker’ Kiesman ‘65 and Russ Tolles ‘65 for Herman “Leo “ Coombs ‘65 on Orr’s Island, ME…get-well cards, telephone calls, and personal visits to Leo from various members of the FA football teams from 1963 to 1965, before Leo passed away on August 2, 2012.

Scott Kelly ‘53, FA’s Alumni Coordinator, & his wife, Sandy

Another heartwarming alumni/campus/community act of kindness was for Gregg Sanborn ‘84 of Sidney, ME. Gregg was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoma and needed to find a matching stem cell donor. Greg is the head of the Maine Warden Service. Ellen Benson Guilford ‘72 told Todd Gallagher ‘82, FA Alumni Director, and Rachel Andrews Damon ‘76, FA Director of Public Relations and Annual Giving. Ellen, along with many others, spearheaded a stem cell donor search drive on May 19th, and 20th, 2012, and approximately $50,000.00 was raised to offset the costs of the donor search. There was a great dinner turnout at the Academy’s Wadsworth Arena and well over 100 new donors were added to the Stem Cell Donor Database because of the donor drive. To date, Gregg has a donor and is undergoing the transfer process in Boston, MA - an incredible experience to observe, as well as to be a participant! The sharing of grief or loss with families, when we lose an alum, faculty, or staff who was one of us either in the classroom, dormitory, athletic team, or in Fine Arts, presents us in the Alumni Office with a humbling Fryeburg Academy family experience. This past June 2012 the 40th (fortieth) class reunion of 1972 had a dedication around a celebration of the many faculty members at the time of their graduation. Having been one of those so honored, it was such an uplifting Fryeburg Academy spiritual experience. We were all overtaken with such gratitude and humility with their efforts forty years later. Kudos to the likes of Keith Durham ‘72, Gary MacFarlane ‘72, Mike Ross ‘72, John Garner, Jr. ‘72, Penny Snow Dougay ‘72, Becky Kiesman Leonard ‘72, Elbridge Russell ‘72, Ellen Benson Guilford ‘72, Lynne Jones Eastman ‘73, James Eastman ‘72 and the many others behind the scenes. Another joy as Alumni Coordinator is being a participant in the growth of the LaCasce Society with my colleague, Peter Klomp, FA Director of Gift Planning. Peter has made it his personal mission to promote the benefits of naming Fryeburg Academy in LaCasce Society members’ wills. In addition, Peter Klomp has become the new Asian Fryeburg Academy alumni and parent ambassador. His tireless drive is directly responsible for the growth of our Asiatic travels for alumni affairs, personal parental visits, and newsletters. And most recently, Peter is working to encourage interest in Fryeburg Academy’s entrepreneurial program by introducing an entrepreneurial capital growth plan. All of these efforts have brought the Academy to the forefront worldwide, or cutting edge if you will, in secondary school education circles! The neophyte participation in our new “Hall of Excellence” at Fryeburg Academy has proved most gratifying relative to the research of the candidates and their acceptance of the honor. Thanks to our Archivist Barbara Hill ‘74 and other local historians, we have been blessed with success. Our campus curb appeal as you drive by is a ‘portrait’ of the work of Kristen Russell McDermott ‘83 and her landscaping team. Wow, what a gift! Two other acts that are ongoing as coordinator are the various alumni socials in places like Florida, Boston, New York, the West Coast, Maine, Chicago, Connecticut, and Rhode Island proved to be the most interesting research when working with office personnel Tim Scott, FA Director of Development, Rachel Andrews Damon ‘76, Peter Klomp, Todd Gallagher ‘82, and Headmaster Dan Lee. Did you know we have three new trustees? Punyu Ho ‘95, Brad Littlefield ‘80, and John Chandler ‘78!! To sum up what the Alumni Coordinator’s life is like at Fryeburg Academy’s Alumni Office, I would like to quote Boston Globe’s Bob Ryan: “It’s a dream job and a labor of love!” Scott Kelly ‘53, FA’s Alumni Coordinator -9Fryeburg Academy, 745 Main Street, Fryeburg, Maine 04037, (207) 935-2001 x 3137, www.fryeburgacademy.org, e-mail-alumni@fryeburgacademy.org


FA - SCHOOL COUNSELING School Counseling vs. Guidance The term “guidance” was the popular designation for the counseling movement in schools for well over fifty years. Today, the term has been replaced with “school counseling” because guidance is only one component of a counselor’s work. School counselors deliver a comprehensive program, and “guidance” is a word that does not encapsulate the broad scope of services that those in our profession provide. Initially, guidance counselors were introduced into schools to assist students with occupational and vocational choices, as well as to provide college preparatory support. However, today the role of school counselors is to help students Nicole Cote-Crosskill ‘77, FA’s Director of School Counseling Services with through personal and social development, enBrenna Kackley ‘11 hancing academic achievement in order to better ensure successful careers. School counselors manage comprehensive services for every student, rather than just for individuals who need a service. They hold a Master’s degree in school counseling, a degree which includes a focus on mental health in order to better understand and respond to the challenges that the youth face today. The school guidance curriculum is dispersed throughout the school’s overall curriculum and delivered both in group activities and through individual work. It is supported by educators in the classroom and through our advisor program. Advisors serve as a support to academic and social needs and complete academic status checks during the homeroom period to assist the Academic Dean in developing student schedules. In addition, school counselors coordinate activities to help students establish personal goals and develop future plans, plans that typically include post-secondary education at colleges and universities. They also provide support in response to events and conditions in students’ lives, and nurture the school’s climate and culture. Professional and confidential relationships with students are established to help students resolve and/or cope with problems and developmental concerns. School counseling has evolved significantly during the past decade in response to the changing needs of students in our 21st century society. Counselors now implement comprehensive programs that include instruction, identification of a student’s skills and interests, and the development of personal plans that align with those skills and interests, in order to establish lifelong goals. As stated in the Academy’s Mission Statement, “The Academy believes that a strong school community provides the best conditions for learning and growth,” and the Academy builds on this foundation by incorporating the principles of respect, tolerance, cooperation and responsible citizenship. The school’s counseling vision is founded on our school’s mission and works to enhance the learning process of every student by providing academic/college counseling and career development, as well as addressing personal/social needs. The Fryeburg Academy community is proud of all its graduates and the hard work they demonstrated to reach their goals. This fall, our students plan on attending prestigious institutions such as Harvard, Cornell, Colby and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in addition to a wide variety of other outstanding colleges that were identified as a great fit for them. 83% of our seniors applied and are planning to attend post-secondary institutions, with overall 813 acceptances to 195 different institutions. We know that individuals with post-secondary degrees are more likely to be employed, and we especially applaud those students who are the first generation in their family to attend college. That they succeeded despite the additional challenges they faced in their pursuit of a post-secondary education is commendable, and we recognize the fortitude that is essential in choosing this path. We also honor those individuals who have selected to serve our country in a military branch. In conclusion, the school counseling department wishes every graduated senior from the class of 2012 the best of luck in pursuing their unique set of life goals.

LEURA HILL EASTMAN PERFORMING ARTS CENTER The Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center has had another busy six months. We always try to find a wide variety of shows so we have something that everyone will enjoy. These last few months have been filled with shows that featured our own Fryeburg Academy students, members of the local community, and some famous performers from around the country. For those who were here for reunion weekend, we hope you enjoyed the Palmina F. and Stephen S. Pace Galleries of Art Exhibit: Strangers and Others. It was a unique collection of photographs and sculptures by artists from Maine. The current exhibit features paintings of apples, apples trees, apple blossoms, and is suitably named Apple of My Eye. The spring months in the theater brought us some wonderful shows by our talented music department. The Annual Jazz Cabaret was split into two nights due to the number of jazz combos and vocal groups that competed this past year for the Academy. The crowds were thrilled by the two nights of great music – the perfect send-off for the Vocal Jazz Choir to bring home their seventh straight State Title! Later in the spring we enjoyed hearing all of the music students in the Annual Spring Concert. We added the First Annual Fryeburg Academy Awards to our spring line-up. It was Sarah MacGillivray-FA’s Leura Hill Eastman a spectacular evening of fun to honor our film students and their great accomplishPerforming Arts Center Box Office Manager with ments. Plans are already underway to continue this fabulous night, which not only Isabel Hodgman-Burns ‘14. featured great films, but brought back for a second show, the popular band of seSarah is FA’s Interact Advisor as well. niors from the class of 2012, Punkapalooza. Their first show was such a hit, we’re hoping there is another rock band that will want to take the stage this year! We will of course be looking forward to the All School Musical this November, which is Anything Goes, and the Annual Candlelight Services on December 16th. Our summer included our regular events such as The Metropolitan Opera Encore Series and a limited number of summer movies. We brought back the amazing Preservation Hall Jazz Band, who once again thrilled the audience. When you can fill just about every seat in the theater, and then have all those people dancing for the 30-minute encore, I guess you know you’ve got a great show on your hands! A good time was had by all! We once again closed out summer with a community presentation by White Mountain Musical Arts - the 24th Annual Bach Festival. We were thrilled to have another chance to hear these impressive performers who bring such beautiful music to our stage. The closeto-capacity audience on hand for the Saturday program was not disappointed, and the folks who were here for Herr Bach’s appearance on Friday were delighted and learned so much! On screen, our Metropolitan Opera Live in HD Series remains one of our most popular series. With eleven operas this season, there has never been a better time to come out and give opera a try! To make the experience even better we have added Dolby© Surround Sound to our theater! Fryeburg Academy’s own Joe DeVito prepares a wonderful opera lecture every Wednesday prior to an opera. We continue our similar series from The National Theatre of London. They opened the season this month with the new play based on the book, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night.” We have had the local community theater company, Arts In Motion, on stage for a number of their shows. We are always impressed by their quality performances. This year we’ve enjoyed: Peter Pan, Charlotte’s Web, Songs of Barbra Streisand, and a number of performances at the end of their kids’ theater camps. They will be back in November to celebrate their 20th Anniversary with a special celebration featuring the youth of our community! Speaking of community, we’ve had a number of local groups using the facility for events to help them raise funds. Mother Seton House, the White Mountain Health Care Center and a number of school teams or clubs have all done very well with their shows. As always, if you are in the area, check the Fryeburg Academy website for the most up-to-date information on all of our performances, because we would love to see you at the PAC. It is all happening here!

Eye on Alumni Lillian Bisbee Banfill ‘43

I recently was able to fulfill something on my lifetime “TO DO” list and that was to visit with my 7th and 8th grade teacher, Lillian Bisbee Banfill ‘43. Known to almost every local Fryeburg area student as the ever-diligent, almost general-like, English teacher, “Mrs. Banfill.” She is regarded as one of the most respected teachers in Fryeburg history. It is with no disrespect that I refer to her as

“Lillian” in this article! Lillian Bisbee Banfill ‘43 was born at home on September 22, 1925, in Tuftonboro, NH, to parents Wilbur & Beulah Bisbee. Wilbur worked for Ossipee Oil most of his life and Beulah was a homemaker and mother and eventually was a teacher. Lillian is an only child. The Bisbees moved to Fair Street in Fryeburg in 1934 when Lillian was nine years old. Her father drove oil trucks up Mt. Washington to service the Observatory. Lillian attended C.A. Snow School, then called Fryeburg Elementary, through 8th grade. She began at Fryeburg Academy in 1939 and graduated in 1943. “We only had the one main building back then,” Lillian says. Lillian Bisbee ‘43 - age 12 “My mother was a school teacher and she insisted that I take Latin. Latin and I did not agree. But I got through it okay thanks to my friend, Dave Hastings ‘42. If it wasn’t for him, I would never have passed Latin. I owe him a lot! I was the only girl in Latin. There were only six or seven of us. I remember our teacher, Miss Piper, was always late, so we got to talk a lot.” I asked Lillian who her other friends were at FA – “Helen Abbott Rankin ‘43 and her husband, Herbie Rankin ‘43, Henry Black ‘43 and Clara Thurston ‘43 were a few. Clara always beat me out at everything! I couldn’t catch up with her.” About “Mister LaCasce” – Lillian says, “Everybody liked ‘Mister.’ He was an advocate for kids. His office was just as you go in the main building (where the Dean’s Office is now). I was an A & B student. I liked academics. If I had been Lillian Bisbee ‘43 allowed to take maybe some of the courses I wanted to take, I might have been a better student. I knew I wanted to go to college. If I didn’t know it, my mother reminded me all the time! My father did not say much about my education except when I got a ‘2’ (instead of a perfect ‘1’) in penmanship. I never had such a lecture from him again. I was expected to get all 1s. I was not an athlete, that was not my thing. I did do archery at one time and I did tap dancing until I had to have an operation on my neck – end of tap dancing.” After graduation in June of 1943, Lillian went off to the Normal School, now the University of Southern Maine at Gorham. She attended a three-year course in teaching and attended night classes for her fourth year. Lillian Bisbee met Fred Banfill as a young girl. Her grandparents lived in Tuftonboro, NH, and Lillian and Fred were playmates most of their lives. They married in 1946. Lillian Bisbee ‘43 in front of the Congregational Church at I met Fred Banfill for the first time when I visited Mrs. Banfill for this Baccalaureate 1943 -12Fryeburg Academy, 745 Main Street, Fryeburg, Maine 04037, (207) 935-2001 x 3137, www.fryeburgacademy.org, e-mail-alumni@fryeburgacademy.org


article at their vacation home, now pretty much their permanent home, in Bartow, FL Their only daughter, Jo-Beth Banfill Holt ‘68 was visiting as well. Fred is one of the nicest men I have ever met. He was drafted right out of high school and had to return after the war to get his GED. He entered the U.S. Army in January of 1943. Fred says, “I served for two years, ten months and 29 days. I got out on December 5, 1945. I was all over Europe, in France, Germany, Belgium, England, Holland and Italy. I saw a lot of the country but sure not as a tourist! I was not on the front lines, but we had plenty of bombing going on around us. Every night enemy aircraft were dropping bombs. We had one we called Bedcheck Charlie, because he showed up every night at 11 o’clock. At one location our mess hall ended up being part of the funeral parlor. A lot of guys couldn’t eat in there because you could smell the formaldehyde. We were all doing what we had to do and hoping to end the war.” Lillian says, “One of my biggest memories is Pearl Harbor Day. We had friends with a radio and I used to be at their house a lot. I was over there on the day they announced the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was such a beautiful day at home and then all that destruction happened. I was only a kid and don’t think I ever realized what was going on. But I knew the adults were very upset.” Lillian says, “You (Fred) came home by bus and then train in the middle of a hectic storm in December. We picked you up in Ossipee, NH.” She turns to me and says, “Yes, I was thrilled to see him. We talked about marriage then and bought a house, too.” Fred Banfill-U.S. Army 1943 Fred says, “When the war ended everybody was just excited, ecstatic really.” Fred and Lillian were married on June 29, 1946, on the lawn of their family house in Fryeburg. They have been married for 66 years. Lillian says, “We’ve had our ups-and-downs but most of it has been wonderful. When I was at Gorham I used to lie in bed looking towards Portland at the searchlights going. We once had a submarine that almost came into the harbor. Fred and I wrote to each other all the time he was in the war.” After their wedding, the Banfills moved to Laconia, NH, as Fred took flight training at Laconia Airport. This was an opportunity for him to learn a new trade, and he had always loved aircraft and flight. Fred got most of his flight ratings and training at Laconia. The Banfills lived in a little camp the size of a living room out in the woods near the airport. Lillian says, “I was torn between being a teacher and a librarian. I spent a week in Augusta with a friend and went to the Maine State Library. There I found out it really wasn’t for me, and I knew then I wanted to be a teacher and started my career in 1950. I began teaching in Sanbornville, NH, and taught in Lovell, Sweden and Brownfield before doing the bulk of my years at Sadie F. Adams School in North Fryeburg and C.A. Snow School in Fryeburg. I was the last to teach at the Black Mountain School before it closed. We had bats in that schoolhouse. The classroom was divided down the middle. I taught on one side with the bats on the other! I was in Brownfield for two years before this. There were four teachers there. I had 6th, 7th and 8th grades with 37 students, and I taught all subjects.” “In Sweden the boys had to take care of the wood stove and the girls had to sweep. Two boys did the janitorial work before I got there.” Fred adds, “That’s what they call, ‘the good old days.’” “At Sadie F. Adams I only taught English. I was always determined to teach and loved English. I have always been a reader. I still read. Both Fred and I are big readers. I like historical fiction novels, but really will read anything except for science fiction.” Jo-Beth, Fred and Lillian’s only child, was born on December 8, 1949. In the 50’s the Banfills moved to Fryeburg and Fred worked for Lillian’s father at the Gulf Oil Corner Filling Station. Fred went on to work for Hood’s Milk for 15 years. After leaving Hood’s, Fred went to work at the Fryeburg Airport as a mechanic. He was a pilot in his own right, as well as a flight instructor and had his own aircraft. He also eventually worked at North Conway Airport. Lillian says about teaching, “I loved teaching. I enjoyed the children…..most of them…. I had a lot of good students. I had one group I could walk anywhere in that building and they would keep on working.” Fred & Lillian Bisbee Banfill ‘43 on their wedding day “I didn’t have favorite students. I enjoyed them all. I always June 29, 1946, in Fryeburg, ME ended up with some of the misbehaved ones. We got along quite well. -13Fryeburg Academy, 745 Main Street, Fryeburg, Maine 04037, (207) 935-2001 x 3137, www.fryeburgacademy.org, e-mail-alumni@fryeburgacademy.org


I worked with Thelma Hapworth. I liked Thelma. She was really an advocate for kids. You’d never know it. She really cracked the whip. But you couldn’t help but like her later on. One day I saw her take this one young man over her knee. He must have been six feet tall. I asked her what he had done and she said he had gone down in the boys basement and found a way to the girls basement so I guess he deserved it. I worked with Olive Palmer ‘33, Dolly LaCasce, Catherine Jones & Flora Katsiaficas. They were all co-workers and friends. I always liked these folks. I also taught with Tom Doughty and Alma Lord. Tom was a wicked jokester and Mrs. Lord was not. He once told Mrs. Lord that she had a flat tire. She really didn’t. After checking her car, she stormed into his classroom and grabbed him by the ear. A young Wayne Infinger ‘71 said to Mr. Doughty, ‘Now you know what it’s like!’” Mrs. Banfill was hesitant to name names when I asked her about memorable students, but she did Lillian Bisbee Banfill ‘43 Fred Banfill at his home in Bartow, FL say this, “I remember Steve Cote ‘85. He was a good student. I liked the 1968 class – Jo-Beth’s class – with Brenda Buzzell ‘68, Dave Hastings ‘68 and Russell Ross ‘68. I remember Brad Littlefield ‘80 as well. Those were some of my good students but there were many others, too. I see Brad at the golf course in Lovell sometimes. I don’t golf anymore. I ended up going through one of the bridges on the golf course. My leg went right down through it. It wasn’t very wide. Paul Lusky ‘57 and Fred helped me out. I understand they have a sign on that bridge now that says, ‘Banfill Bridge’…” Lillian Banfill taught school for a total of 36 years and retired in 1987. Besides lots of reading, Mrs. Banfill loves to knit and used to be an avid golfer. The Banfills did lots of snowmobiling in their younger years and have also ridden Harley Davidsons. Their daughter, Jo-Beth, adds, “My mother did ride her own snowmobile. She created trails where there weren’t any and ran into a stone wall once. She woke up in the hospital in North Conway. She was wearing a helmet at the time so there’s the good news.” I asked Mrs. Banfill how her current health is; she says, “I am 86 years old and will be 87 in September. Fred is 88. “My health is not 100% but it’s not really bad either.” “I do see some of my old students around. I saw Steve Hatch ‘77 one day when I was getting gas. He waited on me. He said, ‘How did you ever stand me?’ I don’t remember my answer but he was fine. Most of my students will come and talk to me if they see me. I can’t remember names now.” Jo-Beth adds, “I am obviously very close with my parents. It’s like my mother always was a teacher even when she retired. I can’t imagine her in any other career really. I’ve had a lot of people run into me in later years and tell me that my mother was their teacher and they elaborate on how they disliked her at the time, but are now so grateful for what she made them do. I know she is very respected by her former students.” Fred says, “They hated the work she gave. She was tough. But all of them are happy about it now. She brought home lots of work over the years. People realize now that she taught well and with good reason.” Jo-Beth lives near her parents in Maine and spends a few winter months in Florida near her parents. It is with my fondest respect and admiration that I share this article with all of the former students of Mrs. Banfill. On behalf of her students, I wish to thank her for her years of service to MSAD72 kids and her dedication to the English language!

In April 2012, we learned that FA alum, and Chief Deputy with the Maine Warden Service, Gregg Sanborn ‘84 had been diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma. Ellen Benson Guilford ‘72 and friends of Gregg’s went to work with the Be The Match-National Marrow Donor Program (www.marrow.org) to help find a match and match funding for Gregg who had been unsuccessful in finding a donor up to that point.

The group, “The Friends of Gregg Sanborn,” led by Ellen began planning. Friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and strangers came out in record numbers to support

Gregg. A benefit supper and auction was held along with a stem cell match donor drive at the FA gym with over 500 people in attendance. Ellen says, “The whole community came out to save someone’s life. I’m amazed and just so proud. Gregg was not only supported by his friends, colleagues and classmates but by those of his parents and family as well. This small community is very supportive. This was huge. People were there who hadn’t seen each other in 30 years. It was so great that Gregg was there too. He has been very sick and we weren’t sure he could be there - but it seemed to me he got energy from the rest of us. His color improved as the events went on. He was sitting on a cooler talking to people and laughing and telling stories with old friends. It truly felt like we were giving him life.” In mid-June, we got the phenomenal news that a match was found! We received this letter from Gregg shortly thereafter: “Please extend my appreciation and gratitude to all those who organized, planned and attended the “Be the Match” events over the weekend of May 18th at Fryeburg Academy. Whoever coined the phrase “you can’t go home again” was never given the opportunity to experience such an event. I was truly overwhelmed by the outpouring of

support from the greater Fryeburg Community. Not surprisingly, during the past year I have noticed that the simple activities that normally bring me contentment and happiness, such as bird hunting with my dogs, flyfishing with my family or a round of golf, have failed to do so. The uncertainty of the immediate future and planning my life around doctors’ appointments and medical testing has made cancer an entity that is always present. However, I found myself having a good time during the events of that weekend in May and forgetting about the fight that lies ahead. Cancer took a back seat for a weekend, and for that a big ‘thank you’ as well. Now, to relate a bit of good news that was confirmed this week. I was notified by Dana Farber that a match has been found. Under the rules of “Be the Match” the only information that can be released to me for one year is that the donor is a male, 26 years of age. At this time I do not even know what state or country he is from. Staff at Dana Farber tells me that this profile is a very good match for me and increases the chances of a successful stem cell transplant. Whether or not my match comes from Fryeburg, ME, or Fairbanks, AK, the fact a match was found clears one of the biggest hurdles on my way to being cured. Hopefully, one or more of the 190 or so potential donors that were swabbed at Fryeburg will someday get the call to save someone’s life. The awareness that my disease has created and the subsequent “Be the Match” drives have resulted in over 700 names from Maine and New Gregg Sanborn ‘84

Hampshire being added to the world-wide registry. That is definitely a positive that was created out of a real negative diagnosis. As it stands right now, I will be admitted to Brigham and Women’s hospital on July 9th, to start the stem cell transplant process. As I understand it, the first 8 days I will be receiving high doses of chemotherapy and radiation and will only be semi-conscious. The goal of that is to kill all cancer cells. On day eight, I will be receiving the donated stem cells that will rebuild my immune system that the first eight days of treatment has completely destroyed. The donated stem cells are my life line. I will need to be in isolation to protect myself from infections until my new immune system is strong enough, usually about a year. It will be a long year before I can resume “normal” activity and go back to work. I will miss seeing everyone at the fair this year, but I’ll catch up with everyone next year. My doctors say if this works, I’ll be trading this one year for 30 or more good ones. I’ll hang onto that in the days ahead. Again, thank you for all that was done for my family and me.

Excerpts from Graduation 2012 Speeches: “We did not earn these caps and gowns by ourselves. It was those around us who taught us what we needed to know to be who we are today. When I look back over these four years, what shocks me is the sheer number of relationships I have been blessed with, and the incredible impact those relationships have had on me.” by David Fulton ‘12; “I guess that for many of us, it’s a combination of fear and excitement of what is to come, but even greater is the fear of losing what we have kindled a deep affection for. We have grown so comfortable here that the idea of leaving is often more daunting than it is exhilarating.” by Laura Pulito ‘12

FA CLASS NEWS

1941 Harry Eastman ‘41 and his wife, Lillian, have been married for 66 years. Harry says, “We both are retired and keep busy with our five married children who live locally. We have enjoyed our last eight years residing at our Cornerbrook Condominium. We spend time at our cabin in Chatham, NH, also at Highland Lake here in Windham (ME) with families, including nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. We do get the Scenes and enjoy reading it.” 1947 Martha Coe Ritchie ‘47 of Scarborough, ME, wrote to say: “Ever the student, I attend OLLI (senior college) classes at USM. This fall’s course was on Sub-Saharan Africa: people, politics, cultures, Luther “Smitty” Smith ‘41 & Bea Baker Head ‘45 etc. I’m still picking ‘em up and setting ‘em down at aerobic dancing, albeit at an increasingly more sedate level. Again this year, my team ‘Martha’s Miracle Walkers’ participated in the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” fundraising event. The vegetable garden was a complete failure, but there’s always next year! I still play bridge with occasional success; and have been knitting to help raise funds for one of my grandson’s trip to Europe next summer.” 1948 Corliss Watson ‘48 was honored for 65 years of service during the Fryeburg Fire Department’s annual banquet held on April 25th. He was presented the award by Fire Chief Ozzie Sheaff. (Bridgton News 5/17/12) 1950 Hilda Kaye Berry ‘50 writes, “It was sad to learn we’d lost three classmates, Clyde Eastman ‘50, Clayton Richardson ‘50, and Francis Hartford ’50, in just several months. A reminder, if one chooses, that donations in remembrance, can be made to our class fund as: Class of 1950 Fund/Fryeburg Academy and sent to the Academy. The fund has now provided 11 consecutive monetary awards since year 2000 to a college-bound F.A. graduate. Nice job class. Good wishes go to Sheila Bennett Trott ‘50, who had multiple injuries from slipping on ice, and kudos to her sister, Carmalita Bennett Higgins ‘50, who dropped everything to move in with Sheila with TLC. We hope things are getting back to normal. So nice to have your own private nurse!” Kenneth Williamson ‘50 writes, “Want to get in touch with old classmates from 1947 thru 1950. I was on the Varsity Track team; my specialty was high jump and ran the high hurdles. I remember Mister LaCasce and a geometry teacher called “Pop.” History teacher was Professor Blake. The cook in the kitchen was called Arnie, and made fabulous spaghetti dinner. Mr. Grey was in charge of the boy’s dorm.” Email Kenneth at lo_williamson@bellsouth.net

I am very busy with Church, Grange, Kiwanis, our new performing arts center, and our country music band that Carolyn started, called ‘Carolyn & Friends’.

I hope this finds everyone well!” 1957 Emily Dore Fletcher ‘57 has retired from the post of Fryeburg Town Librarian. “All you need to do is visit the library to see that Emily’s dedication and commitment preserving the history and making the library a special place has been a priority for her in the 12 years she has worked for the town,” said Sharon Jackson, Fryeburg Town Manager. “I want to take this opportunity to thank Emily for a job well done,” said Jackson. “She will be missed.” Beginning in July 2012, Donnette Ela Barnes ‘70 will be the librarian. Donnette has been working part time at the library since July 5, 2005. (Bridgton News 7/14/12) 1960 Carol Severance Taylor ‘60 writes, “I am retired from 35 years of teaching and we do enjoy getting to our cabin in Lovell frequently. Also have enjoyed catching up with high school chums, Lonni (Lutte Lewis ‘59) and others.

Retired Chief Ralph ‘Woody’ Woodward ‘48 of Center Conway, NH, was presented with a commemorative axe by Chief Richard Marr at the November meeting of the East Conway Fire Department. Surrounded by his family and the members of the fire department, Woodward was thanked for his many years of involvement in his community and his continued support of the fire department. He was also reminded by the chief that the department had no intention of letting him retire any time soon. The East Conway Fire Department was organized in 1949 during the years when the men of the community left the fields, woodlots, and mills to respond to fires with whatever equipment they had available. After the great fire in Brownfield and Fryeburg in 1947, the decision was made to establish a fire department on this side of the river to protect the lives and property of the citizens of East Conway; Ralph Woodward has been serving his community ever since.

I’m sure the grounding I had in your classes, and your enthusiastic approach to the subject, have kept my interest and excitement in Science alive. I’m also sure that your approach to teaching, along with a few others at Fryeburg, encouraged me to take up teaching as a career.

Patty Cogswell ‘74 was a past North East Regional Comfort Keeper of the Year. Patty was one of eight caregivers across the U.S. honored by CK Franchising, Inc., for exceptional caregiving. “Patty was selected to represent the North Shore office of Comfort Keepers because of her great devotion to delivering the highest quality of care to her clients,” said Kathy Goodwin, RN, coowner of the Beverly Comfort Keepers office. “This really is an incredible accomplishment,” said Warren Goodwin, CSA, co-owner. “Our office nominated four very qualified candidates, and they were culled by a team at Franchise Support in Dayton. Three were chosen from each region, and then a short, non-identifiable bio was posted on the Internet for the regional offices to vote — one vote per franchise owner. Patty was chosen by this vote of the owners in our region. She really stood out.” “I am overwhelmed by this award,” said Patty. “This award is not only recognition of my efforts, but of those of the entire Comfort Keeper caregiving staff. Our goal is to make our clients’ lives better, and I am thrilled to be able to make a difference.”

the business of books. “White Birch Books will be here twenty years next year; I have worked here for fifteen,” says Laura, the mother of an eight-yearold boy and owner of White Birch Books in North Conway. Lucy tells her tale of the coming Ken Richardson ‘75 & wife-Susan, boating on Moose Pond to own the bookstore and how an independent (indie) bookseller survives these days. Back in the days of first jobs, Lucy worked retail but had never worked in a bookstore. Some fifteen years ago she took a position at White Birch Books founded by Donna Urey. “When I began here, it reminded me of how as a kid I wanted to be a librarian,” says Laura. Well she didn’t become a librarian, but seven years ago she became a bookstore owner when she purchased the business from Urey. Laura explains White Birch Book’s approach to a new age. “We bring a lot to the table,” she says.

We have staff selection, too,” she adds, meaning staff Taylor Newton ‘12 at FA graduation members read and recommend books for customers.

Any book can be ordered for next-day delivery or ordered online at the store’s web site. There’s the special events hosted by White Birch Books, meet the authors, book clubs and an offering of gift cards and other little treasures in the bookstore. “We are open-ended, we are doing whatever we can do to stay alive and afloat,” she adds. Understanding economics: “If a customer’s budget doesn’t allow for new books, we offer used books. You can come and buy six to eight books and not spend more than twenty dollars,” she says. “Hopefully bookstores won’t become obsolete, but the answer is still out there,” she says. One thing Lucy and her staff do know for sure: “We love what we do.” (The Mt. Ear 11/20/11) Mary-Lou Nash ‘85 returns home for Christmas from South African vineyard.

Susan writes, “Every day children are bombarded with messages about what makes them successful and important. Many of Michael Cressey ‘76 with wife-Ella, mother-Jean, sister-Joan Cressy McBurnie ‘90, those messages tell them that physical beauty, son-Aaron Cressy ‘04 & daughter-Carrie ‘12 at FA graduation popularity, and financial success are the way to judge value in a person. But all of those things can change in an instant. Our value needs to be found in something much more permanent and lasting.” Fearfully and Wonderfully Made (Book Website: www.fearfullyandwonderfullymade.me) is a children’s book for all ages! Based on Psalm 139, this lyrical piece presents God’s truth about who we are and how we were made intentionally and lovingly by Creator God. Called “Dr. Suessical” by some, the words of this piece, paired with the intricate full color cut-paper illustrations, make this work truly unique. Susan and Bobbi’s work reflects the very message of this book. The sisters were born from the same parents, and yet are very differently gifted. Susan is a speaker, writer and graphic designer. Bobbi is a classroom teacher and an artist who works with paper and paint. The way their contrasting gifts complement each other in this project is a picture of the way God gifts different people to work together to accomplish His purposes in the world at large.

Mike Chaplin ‘78 in photo with wife, Cathy, and daughter at Gillette Stadium waiting in line to see U2, his daughter’s favorite band, writes, “Music has been a big part of my life, and I realize it more as time goes on. I was in the music program at FA, but mainly I have always listened to a lot of music. I used to collect a lot of Classic Rock music, then in the 90’s I started collecting Mississippi Delta Blues music when I realized that was where much of Classic Rock came from. I once had a goal of having the best and largest collection of Blues music in Maine, but I gave that up, that’s not really the point. In the late 90’s, a friend of mine loaned me a Miles Davis CD, and I started to get into jazz music, and now I have quite a large jazz collection as well. As my daughter grew up, I shared my love of music with her and taught her as much about it as I could (e.g. during car rides on the weekends to give Mom a break). She never wanted to admit she liked my jazz music, but she eventually took up the clarinet in 5th grade, and long story short, she has really taken to music, she has played for years in the Portland Youth Wind Ensemble (PYWE, they play twice a year at Merrill Auditorium), she played in school concerts, in the Jazz Bands, and has won Instrumental Musician of her class since 8th grade. And now she plays in a community band, Saco River Jazz Ensemble, which has players from 14 yrs. to 60+ yrs. They play big band and swing music at nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and are now in the process of linking up with the Alzheimer’s Association of Maine because they play the music that older people love, and it has been found to be very therapeutic for them. I am getting involved with Saco River Jazz Ensemble to try to help them fund-raise, and plan to continue to help after my daughter goes off to college this fall (she will be majoring in music therapy). I am just recently getting involved in trying to save the 5th grade band program at SAD 6, which is where she was introduced to the clarinet, even though my efforts won’t benefit her, because I’m just trying to help support music in the community. It was years after that I realized how good the FA music program is, which is great. I was able to watch the FA Jazz Combo fronted by Brent LaCasce ‘78 daughter, Devin LaCasce ‘11 two years ago in Mount Desert Island at the State Jazz Festival, they were great.” Children of Melissa Chace Trace ‘78: Daughter Cameron Trace ‘12 spent her freshman year at FA, playing varsity soccer and participating in the music program. She graduated from Xavier High School in Cedar Rapids, IA, and will be attending Creighton University, in Omaha, NE, in the fall. She’s in Creighton’s Business School. Son Colby will be a senior in the fall. He’s running cross country, playing spring soccer, skateboarding, and working at a golf course.

Even though their track is closed, with the great weather (last) winter they enjoyed getting on their bikes a few times to ride. In their offseason they play lots of soccer and ski/snowboard when we get the chance to head north. Elizabeth and I are doing great as well. We stay in shape just trying to keep up with them.

Since April I started coming down with some scary issues, i.e., slurred speech, odd muscle movements, and erratic mood swings. Finally, I decided to go to the doctors when the effects became worse. To make a long story short: My parents; my husband, Mark; my daughter, Darlene; and myself went to Duke in November and saw Dr. Bedlack (one of the best ALS doctors in the country). He gave us a preliminary diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease). We will take every day as another day to smile and be thankful for what we have! I want to let you know we are doing ok! Having a great family and such wonderful friends makes all the difference! Our door is always open so don’t be shy and stop on by!” Michelle sent an update in May saying the diagnosis was confirmed January 3, 2012. “I am being strong and holding hope for a cure. This coming weekend my husband and I are going to Washington DC to ask congress for money to help with trials and ALS patients. There will be many ALS people there either with the disease or helping find a cure. As of now I have had symptoms for 13 months, but thankfully still walking, breathing, and talking all on my own. My job no longer will keep me, but I keep smiling and hoping for this bad dream to go away!”

of Maine had the foresight to acquire this rail corridor. Over my eight years in the State Senate, there has been a constant push for the Rail Trail — to bring it back to life. It’s been years since I’ve heard this is going to happen. The time will come when the trail will take us from here to Portland - maybe to North Conway (NH) and beyond…I look forward to the next steps - they may be slow and may be small - but every step is in the right direction. I thank all of you who worked so hard.” Another section of the trail will be constructed next summer and will continue from Porter Road another two and one-half miles to the Eastern Slope Airport Road near the Brownfield town line. The Town of Brownfield has already submitted an application to fund the construction of the section of the Rail Trail that will connect to Fryeburg, according to David Kinsman. The Fryeburg trail project brings to fruition six years of planning by the Town of Fryeburg, the Maine Department of Transportation and the Mountain Division Alliance. Six miles of the Mountain Division Trail connect Windham, Gorham and Standish, and engineering for another five-mile section that will connect

Chris Chaffee ‘03 – The following is taken from an interview with Chris on Tennis-Prose.com posted by Scoop Malinowski: First memory of tennis: My first memory of tennis was probably taking lessons at a tennis camp when I was five in upstate New York at the Jon Spear Tennis Camp. Tennis inspirations: Andy Murray is my hero on and off the court. Favorite players to watch: Andy Murray, for his guile, fighting spirit, and love of the game. Greatest tennis moment: Getting my picture and seeing Murray play in Montreal. Any of the (21) singles titles I won have been special, but the one that stands out the most is coming back and winning my last college (University of Southern Maine) match for my singles flight from being down. Everyone was watching, it was for the title in my flight, and the title for our team. I came back and won and it was so emotional to have everyone there. Worst tennis memory: Losing the singles flight in the final my first year in college, took a few weeks to get over, but made me work even harder and I won my flight the next three years. Favorite courts to play at: I loved playing on the Hilton Head Academy courts. Shoes: Adidas Barricade. Racquet: Head Youtek IG Radical Pro. Funny tennis memory: My college teammate was playing a singles match next to me. He was playing a long point against his opponent and called a ball a few seconds after it bounced – a correct out call. His opponent said, “Late call!” He replied, “Sorry, I was busy breathing.” First famous tennis player I ever met: Ivan Lendl when I was a little kid skiing at Hunter Mountain with my dad. Chris Chaffee is a USPTR certified tennis pro at the Cranmore Family Fitness Center in North Conway, NH.

Jamel Torres ’05 writes, “After graduating from FA, I received my B.S. in Environmental Studies from UVM in May 2009, with a focus in Ecological Design and Land Use. I minored in Geospatial Technologies. Following my graduation at UVM, I moved to Oregon with my girlfriend, Avery, for a year. Out there I explored the beautiful Pacific Northwest through hiking and skiing trips. Avery and I moved to Portland, ME, in May 2010, and began our postgraduate student careers. Recently, I received a Master’s Degree in Community Planning & Development from the University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service concentrating on regional issues such as food systems, community development and economic development. I am currently working on a local food processing project in the Brunswick area, and hope to take on more projects promoting the consumption of locally grown foods while creating social and economic opportunities.” Jamel, SAD 61 School Health Coordinator, was among several others from the SAD 61 district to be honored at the White House. SAD 61 was recognized for its work at LRMS, Stevens Brook Elementary, Songo Locks School and Sebago Elementary School. In October 2011 SAD 61 earned national recognition for their new look and new attitude in school kitchens. SAD 61 was a bronze medalist, recognizing the district’s “excellence in nutrition and physical activity.” First Lady Michelle Obama honored them as part of the Healthier US School Challenge Celebration. The First Lady congratulated educators and school administrators on their “creative efforts” – from developing school gardens, running clubs and fitness competitions – during tight economic times to offer children more nutritious meals and promoting the importance of daily physical activity.

Chelsea Kiesman ’10 was named to the dean’s list at the University of New Hampshire for the spring semester of the 2011-2012 academic year. Colby Locke ’10, a Conway Recreation Department first-year summer counselor, was recognized by Conway selectmen at their weekly meeting on July 10, for his quick-thinking actions to save the life of a ten-year-old boy who was choking on candy on a recent Rec. Center group trip to the Splashtown Water Park in Saco, ME. Selectmen responded with a round of applause, with board chair David Weathers saying, “Congratulations, and thanks on behalf of the board.” “I’m very proud of him,” said Conway Rec. Department Director John Eastman, who accompanied the incoming Ithaca College sophomore to the meeting with selectmen. According to Eastman, Colby and his group of 10- to 14-year-olds were at the water park on June 28, when a ten-year-old boy appeared to be having trouble. The boy was choking on Gummy Bears, and apparently embarrassed, walked away from the group, trying to cough up the candy. He then turned back to Colby, and made the choking sign to his throat. “Colby jumped into action and slapped him on the back,” said Eastman. “It was only five or six seconds, but it shows our young people just how quickly a kid’s life can be in their hands, so it’s important to recognize the signs.” Colby told selectmen he gave a back blow rather than perform the Heimlich Maneuver because sometimes small children’s ribs can be injured from that treatment if the squeeze is too forcefully invoked. Eastman praised Colby, who is 6-foot, 4-inches, for his responsiveness. “He’s great with kids, gentle and responsible. He was calm when this happened, which is what we need. He did what he and everybody should do and what they are trained to do,” said Eastman. He said counselors all undergo CPR and First Aid certification and also receive training from the Local Government Center. He said Colby is a Fryeburg Academy graduate who played basketball and football while there. He was recruited for football at Ithaca but sat out his freshman year due to a knee injury. Colby is studying athletic training under the school’s health science human performance program. “Good job,” said Selectman Weathers.

Connor Reeves ’12 and two friends, Jacob Weese and Ethan Johnson, are supporting breast cancer research by riding their longboards. Last summer the boys raised $4,200 for breast cancer research by riding their longboards from Ellsworth to Old Orchard Beach. What was a 150mile, four-day trek in July 2011, was this year an eightday, 300-plus-mile trip down the east coast all the way to Times Square. The goal this time is $8,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The boys secured donated lodging each night as they boarded their way from Old Orchard into NH, then down to Boston, Providence and CT; then a ferry boat from New London, CT, to Orient Point, Long Island, NY; then from there into midtown Manhattan. During their trip last summer, the boys said they learned a lot about people and their willingness to donate to the breast cancer cause. “One of the things I learned is that there’s a lot more people than I expected that had breast cancer,” Weese said. “Various people along the trip would stop and give us donations; some said they were survivors.” They said they found that breast cancer is not age specific - women young and old can get the disease. Connor plans to attend either Berklee School of Music in Boston or Sibelius Academy for music in Finland. (Taken from a Maine Today article written by Doug Harlow)

Gary McClurg FF (Guidance & Athletics) writes about his recent business venture: “The idea of ‘Angel Wings’ Photos came to me over a year ago; at that time it was just a thought with very little substance. This project’s name ‘Angel Wings’ is to honor my late wife, Sheila, who was a living angel for 43 years. I didn’t actually pursue this path and put my dreams into motion until March 2012. My goal was to put together a project that in some way would benefit the surrounding communities and reach out to people in crisis. I decided to use my hobby – photography – as a vehicle to reach my goal. I proceeded to have 5x7 collage pictures made with inspirational quotes. I thought it important to include photos that expressed natural beauty such as landscapes, flowers, butterflies, sunsets. The next step was deciding on the organizations and their clients that could benefit from the photos. The answer came to me instantly and I knew I was on the right path. Jen’s Friends Cancer Foundation supports Mt. Washington Valley cancer patients as they fight their battle; Starting Point - a local domestic violence support center; Harvest Hills Animal Shelter; North Conway Hospice; Southern Maine Hospice in Scarborough and hospice programs in Oregon and in Florida. I want to reach out in as many states as possible. I am funding this project and feel very fortunate that a few local businesses have offered to sell my photos with proceeds supporting the continuation of donating pictures to the organizations and their clients in need. By purchasing a picture you will be spreading love to individuals in need. If interested in purchasing a photo, please contact me by email with your name and address. Photos are $5.00.
