Hi to all Osteopathic Hospital of Maine and Brighton Medical Center Alumni.
For those of you who have not yet heard about the Ohm Reunion web site, it
is an online meeting place for all who have worked at or were once
affiliated with OHM and/or BMC. On the site you will find a photographic
chronicle of the physical growth of the hospital, an email exchange
section, a discussion forum, reunion photos, newspaper articles from over
the years, current events and photos, memorabilia, and more. The ďWhatís
NewĒ list on the main page of the site makes it easy for return visitors to
find highlights of the most recently added content.
There are quite a few pictures on the web site from the May 18 reunion, and
there will be more added as they become available. The Portland Library
newspaper archives are complete up through the 70ís, and I will be posting
articles from the 80ís next, itís a matter of finding the time to get over
to the Portland Library. You can keep in touch with events planned by The
Golden Club, such as the recent Harvest Breakfast held up in the Board
Room, the August Casco Bay Cruise, garage sales, or the upcoming Christmas
Luncheon in December. The MMC Archive Library continues to be very
helpful. Most recently, they have supplied with me with a number of issues

Discussion Area hasnít been very busy, but I will keep it available should
anyone care to post a comment. Remember, if you should post something that
you later decide you want removed, just let me know and I can delete it. I
hope that as time approaches the next reunion slated for October 22, 2005,
people may find the forum more useful in planning the particulars of the
I am sending this message to about 140 people, including everyone who has
joined ĎEmail Centralí, as well as those alumni that are in my personal
address book. Additionally, I scanned through Maine Medical Centersí
Groupwise address book, looking for familiar names. There are thousands of
names listed there, and I simply donít know everyone who would be
appropriate to send a copy of this letter to. Why not check your e-address
books and those forwarded jokes you get in your email, which are typically
carbon copied to 20 or more people, for fellow alumni and email them a copy
of this newsletter. And while youíre at it, why donít you rummage through
your desk drawers at home or at work for any photos or interesting trinkets
you may have saved over the years so you can share them with the rest of us
in the Reunion or the Memorabilia section.
I am also sending out a letter to approximately 70 area osteopathic
physicians that have had an affiliation with OHM / BMC to let them know
about the web site. There are also several physician groups that have web
sites with contact information, so I will be sending a similar letter to
them by email. Hopefully, they and their colleagues will get a chance to
view the site.
Please ignore this message if you feel that this letter has reached you by
mistake. To avoid receiving any more newsletters about this site, just
reply to this email to me and put the word UNSUBSCRIBE in capital letters
either in the subject and/or and body of the message.
Thanks, and hope you get a chance to visit.
