Alumni Association Banquet was Held on August 11, 2012 at the Waterville Elks Lodge.
This year’s Eagle Award winner was Madeline Boudreau. We had 177 attendees this year with class representative from 1938 to 2006!
Dana Wrigley served as Emcee and was his usual witty self and his commentary was enjoyed by many. The meal was served at noon and as usual was outstanding as was the service provided by the Waterville Elks Staff.
We entered our second annual Alumni Float in the homecoming parade at the high school and played host to the “GRAND MARSHALL” Dana Wrigley. Each year the Alumni Association Eagle Award winner will serve as the “Grand Marshall for the Homecoming Parade”
As you may have read in your banquet invite we have established an Alumni Educational Award. Seniors of Messalonskee can apply if they have one parent that is an alumni of Oakland High School, Williams High School or Messalonskee High School. A $500 award will be made following the successful completion of their first semester of college. Guidelines are available at the high school guidance office.
Election of officers was held:
Kelly Graham Roderick Class of 1982, President
Julie Fabian Benecke Class of 1988, Vice President
Alan Charles Class of 1955, Secretary
Irene Roderick Belanger Class of 19--, Treasurer
Next year’s banquet will be held on August 10, 2013 and will again be held at the Waterville Elks Lodge.
