Hostess Adrienne Buzzell holds up a small scale model of a Bar Harbor Airlines Beechcraft 1900 during a raffle at the airline reunion party at she and her husband Bruce Buzzell’s home in Hermon Saturday, August 15, 2009. Over 75 former employees (and family members) of the now-defunct Bar Harbor Airlines and its local successors at BIA– Eastern Airlines and Continental Airlines –turned out for the party from as far away as Florida and Hawaii. Holding the raffle box (on left) is fellow party organizer Fred Gaspar of Holden. ” It’s like an extended family, being in the airline business, ” said fellow party-goer and former employee Cheri Neptune (not pictured) of Poland Springs. “We still all call each other after all these years.”
