Recognizing:

 

            (5-1)  Carl Mills, of Brownfield, on the celebration of his 90th birthday, February 18, 2013.  Born in Lovell, Mr. Mills was married to his wife, Norma, for 49 years.  He is the father of 4 children, has 5 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.  Mr. Mills served in the United States Army during World War II as a truckdriver.  He worked in the woods most of his life and volunteered as a firefighter and church sexton.  He now runs a garbage route and visits with the elderly.  We send him our congratulations and best wishes on his 90th birthday;

 

(SLS 69)

 

 

            (5-2)  Maxwell W. Negley, of Bowdoin, who has attained the high rank and distinction of Eagle Scout.  This is the highest award in Boy Scouting and is given for excellence in skills development, leadership, personal growth and community service.  For his Eagle Scout service project, Maxwell replaced the "Welcome To Bowdoin" sign on the town line between the towns of Topsham and Bowdoin with an exact replica of the original sign and added a rock garden to the base of the sign.  He also organized several bottle drives to fund this project.  We extend our congratulations to Maxwell on this achievement;

 

(SLS 70)

 

 

            (5-3)  William Thomas, of Woodland, who assisted the American Red Cross by volunteering with the response and recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy at the end of 2012.  Mr. Thomas was deployed twice to Long Island, New York, driving the emergency response vehicle of the Aroostook County branch of the Pine Tree Chapter for hundreds of miles, to deliver food and blankets, helping thousands of residents.  Mr. Thomas also helped with shelter work after the storm.  He is a person who exemplifies volunteerism with not only his work with the American Red Cross, but he is also active with the Caribou Community Emergency Response Team, the Gray United Memorial Methodist Church, the Caribou Kiwanis Club and the Halfway Home Pet Rescue.  We send our appreciation to Mr. Thomas for his selflessness and compassion and send him our best wishes;

            (5-4)  Fred Tomah, an Elder of the federally recognized Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, who lives on the Houlton Maliseet Indian Reservation and whose work as a master brown ash basket maker is nationally acclaimed.  Mr. Tomah is recognized for his unique quadrifoil twill weave baskets, which are highly prized and sought and are featured and displayed in both the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor and at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.  These Maliseet baskets include the Katahdin Smoke Signal basket, the Katahdin Arctic Butterfly basket and Mr. Tomah's stout pack basket, a favorite among some of Maine's ice fishermen, hunters and trappers to this day.  Mr. Tomah has spent his lifetime carrying on his Maliseet culture and traditions, handed down to him by his father and Maliseet ancestors.  His work as a master basket maker is an expression of an ongoing Maliseet way of thinking and behaving that he has learned, lived and shared over the past 60 years.  We send our appreciation to Mr. Tomah for his important contributions to his heritage and to the people of Maine, and we send him our best wishes;

"Hank" Hamblen, Jr., a lifelong resident of Gorham and a dedicated firefighter and paramedic.  Mr. Hamblen attended local schools and graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a degree in history and English.  He later attended firefighting school in Presque Isle and found his true calling.  For several years after college, he was a dispatcher for the Town of Gorham.  Mr. Hamblen was a volunteer firefighter of the Gorham Fire Department for the past 39 years and volunteered as a paramedic for the Gorham Rescue Division.  In 1987, he went to work for the City of Westbrook Fire Department and spent the last 25 years as a firefighter and paramedic based at the Prides Corner station.  Mr. Hamblen will be greatly missed and long remembered by his loving family, his many friends and colleagues and the citizens of the towns he served;
