Art Jacobs – CAL Program Coordinator
After more than 30 years with the Rochester Recreation Department, Art was ready for a new challenge and became the Program Coordinator at CAL in 2022. With a vast amount of experience, a fantastic sense of humor and a wide variety of programs in his playbook he has brought unity to the CAL community. A fun-loving, outdoorsman and a natural born singer/performer/comedian, Art brings a good time wherever he goes. When he’s not putting long days in at CAL, you’ll find him hunting & fishing and cherishing family time with his wife, Michelle and adult daughters, Aubrey and Hannah and son in-law, Reggie.
Kim Tilton – CAL Coordinator
Kim joined the CAL team in August of 2023, coming from Newmarket Rec’s Sunrise Sunset Center in Newmarket, NH. Kim worked with older adults in the Newmarket Community for 15+ years, first with Meals on Wheels and continued as the Program Director for the Sunrise Sunset Activity Center. Providing interesting and fun programming and events has always been her goal, combined with advocacy and compassion for the senior population. She loves spending time outdoors with her husband, David, trail walking, gardening and kayaking and in the colder months she spends her free time cooking, reading and playing games. Being at the beach with family and friends in any season, is her ‘happy place’.
Becky Osgood – CAL Administrative Assistant
Born and raised in York, Becky became a perfect addition to our CAL crew in 2022. She graduated from York High School and went on to become a professional Dog Groomer and a Certified Nursing Assistant before becoming the Administrative Assistant at CAL. Her CNA training and love of the York Community coupled with her top-notch organizational skills is an ideal fit for her at CAL. She has been married to York Beach Fire Fighter Dave Osgood for 25 years and their extended family, daughter Heather, son-in-law Cory, and granddaughter Lil, all live close by on the Osgood family property. She’s fortunate to have her Dad living in York and her sister close by in Barrington, NH. Family and friends are always top priority, and her love of animals, gardening, cooking and a variety of outdoor activities, keep her busy outside of CAL.
Sean Carey – CAL In-house Chef
We welcomed Sean to the CAL team in August of 2023. Sean began his early culinary career at the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport and during the winter months was fortunate enough to cook at their sister resort, the Beach Cabana Club in Delray Beach, Florida. Before coming to CAL, Sean spent the last 20+ years cooking for the residents at a non-profit re-entry program in Portland. Originally from Western Maine, he now resides in Lyman with his family. In his off-time, Sean enjoys fishing, canoeing, watching sports, walking his dogs and of course, cooking for and spending time with his family. His new family at CAL are thoroughly enjoying his delicious food and he continues to build his fan base. We’re very happy to have you with us, Sean, and please keep those great meals coming!
Obie Murphy – CAL Custodian
Obie Murphy’s connection to York began back in 1938 when her immigrant Irish grandparents built a summer cottage. She spent her childhood exploring York and worked at the York Harbor Reading Room as a teenager, where her culinary journey began by eating lots of delicious, local ice cream. Originally from Newton, MA, she attended Providence College and yearned to surf in California. She took to the west by way of Yellowstone National Park, becoming a backcountry interpretive specialist (aka educator). Her love and appreciation of the natural world then took her to the stunningly beautiful area of Banff, Lake Louise, Victoria, and the Broken Islands in Canada where she hiked around the high lakes. The Olympic National Forest and Mount Hood would become home for the next 12 years as she worked on the mountain as a ski instructor, ranger, rescue & patrol and when the recreation budget was cut, she worked as a fire fighter and drove a tanker and as if that wasn’t enough, she spent 16 years as a migrant educator/ELL specialist. She is the mother of three adult children, and happily, a grandmother who actively enjoys the outdoors, skiing, entertaining & cooking. She loves her family, and she loves being in Maine. She states: “Growing up in York was the best thing that ever happened to me. I love the sense of community and tradition.” When not walking her dog on the beach or volunteering for the Lions Club she is busy keeping the Center for Active Living in tip top shape and works seasonally at the Nubble Lighthouse Gift Shop. When she can find the time, she still loves to sew and make pine needle baskets.
