On Thursday, September 3rd, while students, staff and faculty enjoyed a welcome back
barbeque on the South Portland campus, listened to the Proftones, comprised of SMCC
professors, and marveled at the ocean’s spray students on the Midcoast campus in Brunswick
enjoyed a barbeque of their own, accompanied by the Blue Angels buzzing through the sky.
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels returned from a three-year hiatus to the former Brunswick
Naval Yard, which closed in 2011, and put on an airshow for an expected audience of 70,000
over the two-day show.
Midcoast campus students (from left to right) Jake Lipetz, Rosemary Harkenrider-
Crossman and Isabel Drehobl seem to be unaware of the Blue Angels flying by until the jets
sound passed by.
