Class of 1958

I was bad last week and forgot to put this in the last week's paper. Today, July 10, the Camden-Rockport class of 1958 will be having their class lunch, which will take place at noon at The Helm restaurant. Please plan to attend and have a good time with the rest of us.

Class of 1960

The Camden-Rockport class is 1960 will be holding their class lunch Friday, July 11, at the Offshore Restaurant at noon. All members of the class are urged to attend. Come and have a good time and see some of your classmates.


Shock filled the class of Camden 1958 that Ross Holt, one of their teachers, had passed away. Sympathy is extended to his family and many friends. He was also principal of Camden High School years later. The class of 1958 will miss him as he attended their class lunches.

Fire Department barbecue

Hope Fire Department will host a chicken barbecue Saturday, July 26, at Hope Corner Fire Station. More details nearer to the date. So please mark your calendars or date books and plan to attend.


After many hot days, the residents of Hope awoke to rain and some without power last Saturday. Some reported 3-inches of rain and as of 10:30 Saturday morning it is still raining and the wind is blowing some. A tree came down on Route 105 in North Hope, taking the power out. Also in Camden, a big tree came down on Pearl Street.

Historical Society

Hope Historical Society will meet Tuesday, July 15, at Hope Corner Fire Station at 7 p.m. The speaker will be Thornton Batty Jr. The title of his talk will be "Civil War Soldiers." Everyone is invited to attend.


Here at Windward Gardens in Camden, they will not be put off. They had planned a barbecue at noon, which they still held. They cooked the hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken outdoors and brought it into a room where they served it along with two kinds of salads, beverages and strawberry shortcake with a small flag in the whipped cream. Those who attended this even had a great time. This was served by Heather Thomas and her crew of Pat Sanders, Louise Lewis and Donna Douglas (Donna did the cooking). Thanks to Louise, the tables were decorated with blue and white tablecloths and every one had a red napkin. Later on in the afternoon, music by Rosey Gerry and his group was enjoyed by all.
