If you've ever taken a trip to the small town of Milo in northern Maine, chances are you've visited one of the scenic lakes in the area. One of those gorgeous lakes is Schoodic Lake, a popular destination for visitors.

BROWNVILLE — When the Brownville Junction High School Alumni holds its reunion on Aug. 25 this year at the American Legion/BJHS Alumni building on Railroad Avenue, it will honor the last class to graduate from Brownville Junction High School in 1968. At the beginning of the 1969-70 school year, Brownville Junction High School and Milo High School joined together at the newly constructed Penquis Valley High School.

While BJHS continued to be used to house middle school students for several years, the Class of 1968 was the last to graduate from the school which was built circa 1920 to replace the Henderson High School that was destroyed by fire in 1919.

Also recognized at this year’s reunion will be the classes of 1958, 1948 and 1938.
