Guilford H.U.G.S. group provides yearbooks for students

GUILFORD — Piscataquis Community School Elementary and Middle School students are receiving their yearbooks free this year, compliments of the H.U.G.S. parent group. In making the announcement, H.U.G.S. Treasurer Holly Higgins noted, “We usually sponsor field trips for the kids at the end of the year as a way of wrapping up the school year. Due to the COVID-19 situation, we were unable to do that, but we still wanted to do something for the kids. Providing a yearbook of memories seemed like a great alternative.”


The publication is created each year by a yearbook team of students and made available for purchase. This year the team’s work was interrupted by the pandemic and completed by art teacher Mark Arthers and volunteer Walter Boomsma, yearbook advisors.

PCES YEARBOOK — H.U.G.S Treasurer Holly Higgins admires this year’s PCES Treasure Chest — a yearbook of school memories.


In describing this year’s accomplishment Boomsma wrote in the yearbook, “Yearbooks are about memories. Don’t forget all the good stuff we did this year — including this book! This has been a particularly challenging year but we all pulled together and made it happen … We also owe a big thank you to the H.U.G.S group for sponsorship and funding.”


The 2019-20 edition features cover artwork by Jacob Cipullo, class portraits and candid pages and is dedicated to Miss Ann Dall, “a wonderful example of a caring, committed teacher.”


Yearbooks may be picked up at the PCES school office Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
