Highlight for album: Fairfax Historical Society 20th Annual Pie & Ice Cream Social
Fairfax Historical Society 20th Annual Pie & Ice Cream Social
The year was 1988. The Fairfax Historical Society was in tough financial straights and in need of a fundraiser. Gene Cain, Society member and former secretary, wanted to do something "old-fashioned" and thought a social with homemade pies would go over well. She made arrangements to have the Social on the front lawn of the Baptist Building on Main Street. She contacted the Fairfax-Fletcher-Westford Band to do a concert. She then contacted all the people she knew that made pies. Everyone was willing to help. In August of 1988, the first Pie and Ice Cream Social was held. And it was a hit. Prices were kept low, so if someone wanted seconds, they could afford it. Gene passed away a year later, but her children have kept the Pie and Ice Cream Social going. Daughter, and former Society President, Margie, continued her mother's idea. Now, son, and current president Michael, makes all the arrangements of soliciting pies and ordering ice cream from Minor's Country Store. It is the annual main fundraiser for the Fairfax Historical Society, and it is the official start to summer, held the last Sunday in June. It is still held on the front lawn of the Baptist Building on Main Street. The Fairfax-Fletcher-Westford Band provides the music. And all the pies are still homemade.

Highlight for album: Barn Raising With Brad Meunier
Barn Raising With Brad Meunier
A native Fairfax young man, Brad Meunier has established quite a reputation for himself - He did some work for Maryann and I a few years ago when he redid our attached garage and made it into a handicapped room for Maryann, added a ramp for easy access and built a detached garage for us. Brad is a very quick, hard working young man and possesses that Vermont Trait of not actually talking a lot. Both Maryann and I have nothing but the highest praise for him & his crew.
